Sabres ink Eichel to 8-year extension

Sabres ink Eichel to 8-year extension”

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)- It's a done deal! Though both sides have discussed signing an eight-year deal, they have had difficulty agreeing on the deal's value.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the talks are private.

In 61 games for the Sabres last season after missing time with an ankle injury, Eichel had 24 goals and 33 assists.

Eichel agreed to terms on an eight-year, $80 million contract extension with the Sabres on Tuesday.

Eichel, selected second overall in the 2015 draft behind Edmonton Oilers superstar Connor McDavid, was in the final year of his three-year entry-level contract and would be a restricted free agent after the season.

Eichel is the centerpiece of a young Buffalo team that appears to be at least a season or two from making a playoff run but has some young and veteran pieces in place and should show improvement this season.

Since entering the National Hockey League in 2015-16, Eichel ranks second among Sabres players with 113 points (48/65) in 142 career games.
