According to the Vegas Golden Knights, Jack Eichel underwent a successful Artificial Disk Replacement Surgery on November 12th.

He will now begin what many have speculated will be a three to five-month recovery process. Eichel was recently traded to the Vegas Golden Knights in exchange for forwards Peyton Krebs, Alex Tuch, a 2022 3rd round pick, and a conditional 2021 1st round pick. The trade ended an eight-month saga between Eichel and the Sabres over a disagreement on the surgery Eichel should get.

Eichel recently said in an interview with Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman that he had asked for a trade when the Sabres didn’t make the 2020 NHL Playoff bubble. He did this to help speed up the rebuild process after hearing the Sabres were going into a rebuild again. The Eichel trade was the last of three big moves Buffalo made during the off-season. The other two were Sam Reinhart to the Florida Panthers and Rasmus Ristolainen to the Philadelphia Flyers.
