Ladies and gentleman, Jack Eichel has arrived.
The 2015 second overall pick out of Boston University has always had top end talent but now he’s taken that talent to another level this season. The 23-year-old has 22 goals this season, which is second most in the league behind David Pastrnak.
Last night, Eichel potted two spectacular goals to lift the Buffalo Sabres past the Nashville Predators, 4-3. If you didn’t get a chance to see them, take a look below. Pure filth.

What Eichel is doing right now is simply incredible. He has 46 points on the season – tied with Pastrnak for 5th most in the NHL – and is at the forefront of Hart trophy consideration.
This is really the fist season in which Eichel is playing at the same level as his draft counterpart Connor McDavid and it’s absolutely awesome to see.
