Buffalo Sabres captain Jack Eichel has been ruled out for the rest of the season due to a neck injury.
The Sabres said that Eichel has a herniated disk, which will require surgery to fix.
However, the team also said that Eichel is “expected to be healthy and ready to play at the beginning of the 2021-22 season”.
The last time the 24-year-old center played was on March 7.
The Sabres have lost 32 of 42 games this season and are currently in last place in the league.
They endured an 18-game winless streak, the longest in the salary-cap era.
The team have started to turn things around since interim coach Don Granato took over from Ralph Krueger in March.
