According to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, “there are rumblings Eichel could be out longer term” but there has been “no clarification at this time.”
Eichel missed a game in February with a lower-body injury. It’s unclear when this latest injury occurred.
The Sabres have lost seven straight games and enter play Tuesday last in the East Division with a 6-14-3 record. Eichel has struggled offensively this season, too, scoring only twice with his last goal coming Jan. 28.
