Sabres captain Jack Eichel scratched against Devils due to lower-body injury

Jack Eichel was scratched from the Buffalo Sabres’ game against the New Jersey Devils on Thursday due to a lower-body injury, the team announced.

Eichel was a maintenance absence for Buffalo’s morning skate but did participate in pregame warmups. The Sabres captain has appeared in all 16 games this season, tallying 14 points (2+12) while averaging 20:50.

Tage Thompson stepped into the lineup in place of Eichel. Riley Shehan started the game centering Eichel’s usual linemates, Victor Olofsson and Sam Reinhart.
