Here’s when Jack Eichel should be back at Buffalo
It’s pretty safe to say the Buffalo Sabers won’t make the playoffs this season.
They are 20 points from last wildcard position in the Eastern Conference and would mark the 11th straight year without the playoffs for Sabers fans.
The good news for Sabers fans is that the team is playing better than last year, but it’s also a lot more fun to watch the team this year, with players like Tage Thompson, Alex Tuch, Dylan Cozens, Victor Olofsson and hopes like Peyton Krebs. , Jack Quinn and JJ Peterka.
While going to Sabers games in downtown Buffalo might not be the hottest ticket right now, Sabers fans definitely want to get to the arena for one game in particular this season, and it’s in about a month.

The Vegas Golden Knights will play in Buffalo against the Sabers on Thursday, March 10, and that means former Sabers captain and star center Jack Eichel will return to Buffalo.
Eichel was traded to the Golden Knights on Nov. 4, 2021, for forwards Alex Tuch and Peyton Krebs, as well as a 2022 first-round pick and a 2023 third-round pick.
Eichel underwent artificial disc replacement surgery shortly after being traded to Vegas, and on January 15, Golden Knights owner Bill Foley said Eichel would be back “in a matter of weeks.”
Eichel has skated with the team, but isn’t quite ready to play in a full contact match. The hope is that Eichel will be back this month, which means he should be back by March 10 for his return to Buffalo.
I know I have to go to this game. I’m curious to see the reaction Eichel gets from the crowd at KeyBank Center and the general vibe in the arena that night. Eichel’s disdain for the franchise was well documented and unwilling to undergo another rebuild. He also disagreed with the Sabers about having surgery. Sabers wanted the fusion surgery, while Eichel wanted the artificial disc replacement.
I know the Sabers aren’t a great team yet, but if you’re a Sabers fan, be sure to try and find a way to be at KeyBank Center on March 10th.
