Observations:

October 2015 – It goes without saying that Jack Eichel willbe a valuable rookie to own but he looks like he should lead the Sabres in scoring which makes him a must-own in all formats. His adaptation to the NHL has been flawless, likely becoming easier after competing against men last year with Boston University. His strength, power and skill combination is in an elite category and downright shocking for a player of his young age. His attention to detail and dedication to the defensive game elevates his fantasy and real-world value even more. He scored his first career NHL goal in his first career game against the Ottawa Senators on October 8th, 2015 (Video below). Brendan Ross

September 2015 – In his preseason debut, Eichel scored the game-winning-goal, which was also shorthanded, with 5:44 left in the game against the Minnesota Wild. Eichel recorded his first point earlier in the third period on Matt Moulson’s goal to knot the game at two. Eichel was poised and showed he could take care of his own end along with his offensive game. Eichel played over 73% of his ice time with Matt Moulson and Zemgus Girgensons. Paul Zwambag

 

September 2015 – The Buffalo Sabres played two games in their Prospects Challenge and Eichel played in both games. He recorded one goal, two assists, 12 shots and was a plus-three. In the second game versus the Boston Bruins prospects
