Just like that Sabres’ Jack Eichel is NHL’s most productive player

‘With 28 points in 23 games since then, he has been the league’s most productive player. He ranks 61st in the NHL scoring race, but his .96 points per game rank 11th among players with 50 or more games played.’

Sabres intrigued by reported Winter Classic matchup with Rangers

‘”Being part of the whole buildup to the event and being able to play outside would be great,” Eichel said after practice Wednesday at the Los Angeles Kings’ facility. “It’s something you watch growing up every year, an event everyone looks forward to. In my house, I can tell you it was highly watched. It would be awesome, super cool. I know nothing is set in stone yet but to maybe play in New York City against the Rangers would be a lot of fun.”‘

Rangers likely to face off against Sabres in 2018 Winter Classic at Citi Field: report

‘New York City has never hosted a Winter Classic. The Rangers have played in one of the previous nine, the 2012 game against the Flyers at the Phillies’ ballpark, which they won, 3-2.’

2018 NHL Winter Classic likely to be held at Citi Field with Rangers vs. Sabres, sources say

‘But the more national draw of the Sabres, who played the Penguins in Ralph Wilson Stadium on Jan. 1, 2008 in the first Winter Classic, appears to have won out. The Sabres will likely be the “home” team in the game given the Rangers are contractually obligated to play all their home games at Madison Square Garden.’

Report: Rangers/Sabres at Citi Field is close to being finalized

‘The hard part about doing the Winter Classic in New York is that the Rangers can’t technically be the hosts. The Yankee Stadium games worked because they were all local matchups and because they weren’t the signature Winter Classic. I’ve always found it hard to see the NHL just doing a Rangers outdoor game at Citi Field and not involving the Islanders. If this comes to pass and it’s Rangers/Sabres or something for the Winter Classic, I would expect a Stadium Series game to be held a few days later, that would involve the Islanders.’
