Sabres’ Moulson is enjoying having Eichel in the house

‘Moulson wanted to comeback to Buffalo which is why he signed as a free agent. He also had to know what he was in for last season, but he said that doesn’t make it any easier, especially since he only scored 13 goals, “It was a disappointing year for everyone team wise and me personally. The only way I was ever taught on how to make things better is to work hard and make them better yourself, so I went into the summer, I think I had a very good summer in terms of making sure I got stronger and still get faster. I went down to Florida to work on skill stuff and I’m just excited to start camp and get going.”’

Eichel turns to Leaf for huge memorabilia deal

‘In a nutshell, what it means for collectors is that Leaf can use Eichel’s name and license but has to wipe out any use of the Sabres’ logo or NHL trademarks.

As such, Eichel did not sign the numerous products other rookies were signing here the last two days because his signature is exclusive to Leaf.’
