The Vegas Golden Knights have acquired Jack Eichel form the Buffalo Sabres, sending Alex Tuch and Peyton Krebs, along with a first-round pick and a second-round pick to the Buffalo Sabres for Eichel and a third-round pick. Thus ending a long series of trade talks after rumours percolated that the Calgary Flames had upped their offer last night.
I will have a full breakdown of the trade shortly but must bid a fond farewell to Jack Eichel trade talks. They have been a central part of hockey coverage for the past month or two.
