Eichel not pushing for Sabres coaching change
BUFFALO, N.Y. – If Buffalo Sabres coach Dan Bylsma’s job is in jeopardy, star forward Jack Eichel’s representatives say their client is not the one pushing for a change.
Peter Donatelli tells The Associated Press a coaching change was “not even on (Eichel’s) radar screen” last week during the player’s exit meetings with Bylsma and general manager Tim Murray. Donatelli says any suggestion the second-year player is demanding a change is “1,000-per cent false.” Peter Fish, who also represents Eichel, says his client is looking forward to next season and the plans the team has in place. Donatelli and Fish spoke on Wednesday as Murray met with Sabres owner Terry Pegula.
