Watch: Sabres’ Eichel sets up goal with no-look assist

Wednesday February 17th, 2016

Sabres rookie Jack Eichel served up another highlight-worthy play for his rookie season highlight reel.

In Tuesday’s game against the Ottawa Senators, Eichel helped Buffalo get on the board first with an impressive assist, sending a behind-the-back no-look pass to teammate Matt Moulson, who tallied his fifth of the season, and first goal since Oct 29. against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

That play was one of many beauties Eichel has displayed this season. On Sunday, he went end-to-end for a goal.

Among first-year players, the second pick in the 2015 draft, ranks third in goal (17), assists (22) and is second in rookie scoring with 39 points in 58 games.
