?In unfortunate news for Sabres fans, top star forward Jack Eichel is expected to miss at least 4-6 weeks of action due to the ankle injury he suffered during practice today. 

While the injury is not as gruesome as it seems when watching video of it, Eichel is still set to be out for awhile. 

This is definitely not what Sabres fans want to hear, as the team enters a key year into their rebuild, with more talent on the roster and somewhat higher expectations ahead.
