Confident Reinhart ready to roll alongside Eichel

‘Eichel will likely center for Reinhart and left wing Marcus Foligno on Tuesday when Buffalo hosts Philadelphia. The No. 2 picks were a match made in Hockey Heaven last season, but they couldn’t rekindle the magic when Eichel returned from his preseason ankle injury. They combined for no goals and two assists in four games before Bylsma juggled the lines Dec. 13.’

Jack Eichel doesn’t see himself as Sabres’ ‘saviour’

‘”I don’t think of myself as a saviour,” Eichel said. “Obviously a lot of pieces have to fit together for a team to become good. We have a lot of good pieces. I just try to be an impact person and player in the locker room and on the ice every day. I try to bring my best as much as I can.”‘
