Eichel was listed as questionable before tonight’s contest.
Jack sat out yesterday’s practice for what Phil Housley called a “maintenance” day. He was apart of this mornings skate as well. So, that may tell us as to how serious it is. The Sabres could be taking a cautious approach as they don’t play next until Thursday.
He played 4 shifts and 2:42 of ice time.
More to come after the game.
