TheFourthPeriod.com

The Buffalo Sabres have signed center Jack Eichel to an eight-year, $80 million contract extension.

Eichel, 20, led the Sabres with 57 points (24 goals, 33 assists) in 61 games during the 2016-17 season.

In leading the Sabres in points, Eichel became just the fourth player in franchise history to lead the team in points before turning 21, joining Gilbert Perreault, Rick Martin and Pierre Turgeon.

Eichel will earn a base salary of $10 million in six of the eight seasons of his new deal, and will take home a $2.5 million base salary and a $7.5 million signing bonus in both the 2020-21 and 2022-23 seasons.

He has played in 142 career NHL regular-season games over his first two seasons in the League, having registered 48 goals and 65 assists for 113 points, to date.
