Deep Blue Sea: Jack Eichel traded to Golden Knights

Well, Jack Eichel has finally been traded out of Buffalo. The good news is that this saga is over after almost a year. The bad news is that he’s now on the San Jose Sharks’ biggest rivals, the Vegas Golden Knights.

The Buffalo Sabres finally pulled the trigger on a Jack Eichel deal, sending the forward along with a 2023 third-round draft selection to the Vegas Golden Knights for forward Alex Tuch, prospect Peyton Krebs, a 2022 first-round draft selection (top-10 protected) and 2023 second-round draft selection.

The Golden Knights have agreed to allow Eichel to pursue the artificial disc replacement surgery that he desires, and he likely won’t return until after the Olympic break.
