Jack Eichel is finding his stride in Buffalo

Jack Eichel, the 2nd overall pick in the 2015 draft, has been considered to be one of the draft’s generational talents along with Connor McDavid, has struggled at times thus far in his rookie year. There is a lot to live up to when you are considered generational and after having an outstanding one year stint with Boston University. So, Buffalo fans shouldn’t be disappointed in Eichel yet. The time will come.

Eichel started off a little slow with 4 goals and 0 assists in the month of October and currently has 34 points in 50 games. But now, the month of January may be the beginning of a breakout for him. He has 11 points in 12 games, 7 of which were in his last 5, dating back to January 18th vs. the Arizona Coyotes. Eichel is starting to find his stride but unfortunately, the Sabres are not. This will be a good year for him to get acquainted with the team and continue to get better under the Buffalo coaching staff. In the NHL, even for a phenom like Jack Eichel, it isn’t easy to do it all by yourself like it appeared he did in college at times. The fact that the Sabres are one of the bottom 5 teams in the league makes it even harder. He is still only 19 years old and has plenty of time to grow and mature into the franchise player that Sabres fans have been thirsting for so desperately. Jack Eichel has an immense amount of talent, can be the main guy for the Sabres, and hopefully help to bring them back to the playoffs in the future. Be patient, Sabres fans.
