After months of NHL trade rumors speculation on where Jack Eichel could end up, he has finally been traded to the Vegas Golden Knights.
Darren Dreger was on TSN 1050 and reports forwards Alex Tuch and Peyton Krebs, a 2022 first-round pick and a third-round pick in 2023 are going back to the Buffalo Sabres, who will send a 2023 third-round pick along with Eichel to Vegas.
Dreger went on to say, the first-round pick heading to Buffalo is top-10 protected, while the Sabres retained no salary on Eichel’s $10 million cap hit.
The expectation is Eichel will have disc replacement surgery very soon. Recovery time varies. Everyone hopeful he will be back on the ice in 4 months.
