Video: Jack Eichel Makes His Return in Vegas!

The Vegas Golden Knights welcomed Jack Eichel with open arms on Tuesday as the center made his debut on the ice with his teammates.

As it stands right now there is no timeline for his return to game action. Regardless, Golden Knights received quite the boost with him joining his teammates at practice and this was a huge step in him returning to NHL action. The contact issue is going to be the biggest factor in his comeback. How long does he need post surgery to feel some body contact in his neck and back? Certainly a question we'll let the medical experts in Vegas determine.

Eichel last played during the 2020-21 season where he appeared in 21 games and scored twice and recorded 18 points. His best season in Buffalo came back in 2018-19 when he put up 82 points in 77 games and looked like a player who was going to factor in with the games best. Getting back healthy is now the main objective and Golden Knights fans are curious to see what kind of an impact he can have on their team.

One date to circle is February 1st. The Buffalo Sabres play in Vegas and everyone knows he wants to make his return for this matchup. Let's hope everything goes as planned and he's able to hit the ice against his old club.
