Buffalo Sabres captain Jack Eichel will not return to the game this season because he will need to undergo surgery to treat a neck hernia, which has prevented him from going out since March 7.
The forward is in trouble like a saber this year, and the latter ranks last in the overall rankings of the National Hockey League. In 21 games, he has 2 goals and 16 assists, contributing 18 points. In the last game against the New York Islanders, he expanded his series to 4 points, scoring at least 1 point.
This result is significantly lower than the level of 2019-2020, when Eschel accumulated 78 points in 68 matchups, including 36 goals.
Buffalo scored 27 points 10-25-7.
