Sabres forward Jack Eichel suspended for head check

Jack Eichel suspended two games, will miss Sabres' game vs. Penguins

Jack Eichel will abide by the NHL's decision to suspend him two games for an illegal check to Colorado forward Carl Soderberg's head.

"If you look at the hit and look at the rule book, I didn't think it matched up", Eichel said following practice on Monday.

Eichel was assessed a minor penalty for the illegal check in the second period of the Sabres' 3-0 loss at Colorado on Saturday. Connor McDavid received a two-game suspension for a comparable hit last month.

The league found that Voracek had dangerously thrusted his upper-back at Boychuk's head, making contact with an opponent when the puck wasn't anywhere near the play. If you watch the hit he is actually at fault for dropping his head down there.

"It's a 50/50 puck that I'm trying to make a play on". "It's kind of frustrating".

A Time Change: Trump Backs Permanent Daylight Saving
The law was repealed after the war ended, but was re-established by Congress during World War II due to energy consumption. It codified daylight saving time, although it has been periodically modified, particularly the start and end dates.

Phil Housley was brief in his opinion.

Although, given the inconsistency of Player Safety, I should say that I have no issues with the decision, not that I'm not surprised.

That doesn't mean the Buffalo Sabres captain has to agree with it. Sam Reinhart said, "No one tries to do too much, no one is going to be able to replace him, that's just a fact with the talent he has, so we need to settle ourselves down and play with some composure".

Söderberg was in a fairly defenseless position, reaching for the puck in the neutral zone before Eichel finished a check to the head that the NHL's Department of Player Safety believes could have been avoided.

In Eichel's absence, the Sabres have recalled forward Alex Nylander from their AHL affiliate in Rochester.
