Earlier this offseason Jack Eichel made a jersey change.  With Evander Kane now in San Jose, Jack switched from #15 to #9, the number he wore while at Boston University.

And TODAY it was announced that the 21-year-old (he turns 22 October 28th) will be the Sabres captain for the upcoming season.


Eichel signed an 8-year, $80 million contract extension last October meaning he should be in Buffalo through 2026.

For a bonus, here's a look back at all of Jack's goals from last year.
