Sabres Alert

Eichel officially named captain

One day before the opener, Buffalo gives their franchise player the “C”

Phil Housley and the Buffalo Sabres made the captain announcement this morning, giving forward Jack Eichel the “C”.

“It’s really humbling. Just to be in the consideration would be an honor. It’s a huge honor. Obviously I’ve shown how invested I am in this city and I’m excited for the future.”

As for assistants, Kyle Okposo and Zach Bogosian will each wear an “A”.

Earlier in the offseason, Eichel changed his number from #15 to #9. New number, new letter, new season.
