The trade rumors about Buffalo Sabres star forward Jack Eichel have been swirling for what feels like forever now, with talk that he wants out of the organization that drafted him second overall in the 2015 NHL draft.
The only thing missing this offseason was some kind of message from Eichel that he was unhappy … but it appears we may have gotten it.
Eichel started up a Twitter profile recently and hasn’t said much since his initial tweet.
But on Thursday afternoon, he dropped the ol’ “cryptic emoji that could mean anything” tweet and sent NHL fans into a frenzy:
Does this mean he’s unhappy with the Sabres? Unhappy he hasn’t been traded yet? Unhappy with something going on outside of hockey? TELL US!!
