Big Update on Jack Eichel Trade Front

The Buffalo Sabres and Jack Eichel have been going back and forth for months on health procedures and his future with the team. The only difference this time around was the fact Eichel's now being represented by a new Agent and Pat Brisson finally sat down with management to let them know how he wants things to play out for his client.

As per Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet:

The Sabres had an “introductory meeting” with Jack Eichel’s new representatives. Both sides are trying to keep things very quiet, but, as of yet, word is there’s no resolution. As with many of our own responsibilities, several NHL situations picked up steam after Labour Day. I do believe Buffalo re-engaged with interested teams to see where everyone stands. We will see where things go

Look for the Los Angeles Kings, Calgary Flames, Columbus Blue Jackets, Minnesota Wild, Anaheim Ducks and Detroit Red Wings to have be in on the Eichel talks. The player would love to get moved to the Boston Bruins, but at this time it doesn't look like there's much potential for the deal. As far as getting moved out of Buffalo, expect to see Eichel traded later this month.
