BUFFALO, N.Y. – Buffalo Sabres captain Jack Eichel is out indefinitely with an upper-body injury that is not yet considered season-ending.

Coach Ralph Krueger on Saturday was unable to provide a fixed timetable except to say Eichel is “out for the foreseeable future." Krueger added: “An injury of this nature needs more assessment and more time." The update came after Eichel traveled to see a specialist over the past two days to further determine the severity of the injury.

Under the NHL's COVID-19 protocol rules, Eichel is required to spend seven days in quarantine as a result of the trip, meaning he will miss at least Buffalo's next four games.
