Eichel not push­ing for Sabres coach­ing change

Truro Daily News - - SPORTS -

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.
