Buffalo Sabres captain Jack Eichel will not play against the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday due to an upper-body injury, the team has announced.
Eichel leads the Sabres with 18 points (2+16) and has tallied an assist in each of the past four games. He previously missed two games with a lower-body injury on Feb. 25 and 27.
Sabres head coach Ralph Krueger spoke to the media after the morning skate in Philadelphia and said Eichel is still being evaluated. The team should know more soon, Krueger said.
