‘“I’m wondering how the heck, from what I’ve seen so far, (he) played five years in the East Coast Hockey League,” Sabres coach Dan Bylsma said during training camp. “Somebody somewhere has missed something, because the way he’s played he should be playing at a higher level. He should’ve been playing at higher level than that.”’

Sabres’ Eichel returns, unlikely to be 100% for a while

‘“Talking to guys who have gone through it, it’s not going to be 100%, where you completely forget about it, or where it was before. You try to take care of it as best you can. You can notice it at all times, but it’s not something that restricts you.”’

Sabers need Eichel … healthy

‘”I notice it on occasion, to be honest, but it’s not something that bothers me. It’s just a discomfort you notice. It does not stop you from doing anything, but you know it’s there. I’ve talked to a lot of people, and even the doctors said it will slowly fade, but it will not happen in the first seven weeks or so. It’s going to be longer than that. I’m going to have to learn how to deal with it mentally … I just hope I can come back and have an impact on the team.”‘
