Flames, Golden Knights Among Finalists for Jack Eichel


The Vegas Golden Knights and Calgary Flames are among the trade finalists for Buffalo Sabres forward Jack Eichel, ESPN’s Kevin Weekes reported Saturday.

However, the situation remains “fluid and complex,” Weekes adds.

The Golden Knights have been linked to Eichel ever since he and the Sabres have been at an impasse over the type of surgery he should have on the herniated disc in his neck.

Frank Seravalli of Daily Faceoff said earlier this week he thought the Golden Knights were a “team to watch” for Eichel. However, Sportsnet’s Jeff Marek reported that the Sabres want Peyton Krebs in any deal with Vegas and the Golden Knights aren’t willing to part ways with the 2019 first-round pick (h/t David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review-Journal).
