Sabres captain Eichel to miss at least 2 games

Updated: 04-01-2019 04:07 IST

Buffalo Sabres captain Jack Eichel will miss at least the next two games with an upper-body injury.

The 22-year-old center will be reevaluated after sitting out Thursday's home game against Florida and Saturday's game at Boston, coach Phil Housley confirmed Thursday.

Eichel, who leads the Sabres with 49 points (15 goals, 34 assists) in 40 games, has not played since aggravating the injury during the first period of Monday's 3-1 loss to the New York Islanders.

Buffalo is just 4-7-4 since tying a franchise record with a 10-game winning streak from Nov. 8-27.
