Jack Eichel Resting Up Before Training Camp Starts

from Joe McDonald of ESPN,

 Jack Eichel, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 NHL draft, has only a week and a half remaining at home before he embarks on his rookie season for the Buffalo Sabres.

Eichel -- along with No. 1 overall pick Connor McDavid -- has been gaining attention for the possible impact he could make starting in the 2015-16 season since before the Sabres selected the 18-year-old forward in the first round. And with the combine, draft and rookie development camp, it's been a busy summer.

Now the former Boston University standout, Hobey Baker Award winner and native of North Chelmsford, Massachusetts, is finally getting time to enjoy some peace and quiet while focusing on training.

"It’s cooled down a lot and just getting into a daily routine of training and skating, which I’m trying to prepare for training camp," Eichel said. "From the time of the combine until development camp it was definitely pretty hectic. It was quite the media circus and it seemed like everyone was dragging you around to do something, so I really didn’t have the time to settle down somewhere and train. Now that it’s all over it’s been nice to just be able to relax and try to prepare."
