Sabres coach Ralph Krueger thinks Jack Eichel still has another level after missing the first five days of the shortened training camp.
Eichel was dealing with an upper-body injury at the start of camp, so he had to play catchup once he was healthy. That said, he's done a fantastic job of getting up to speed. He's registered six assists in four contests this season, which is particularly impressive if he still has some work to be done before he's completely caught up. "We expected him to take take longer to get up to speed and I've actually been positively surprised at how he dealt with the injury, how he's come back," Krueger said. "I'm expecting within the next few games that he'll have the level that he wants. He's still, as everybody is, working for these final few percentage points but when they come it's gonna be exciting." Jan 22 9:48 am (EST)
