Jack Eichel Will Listen To His Heart

from John Vogl of the Buffalo News,

Jack Eichel has eaten the wings. He’s met the fans. He’s had tours of the Sabres’ facilities.

The big question is: Has his week in Buffalo convinced him to play in the NHL next season rather than go back to Boston University?

“I still have a lot of people to talk to,” Eichel said Friday. “It’s definitely a tough decision to make. I haven’t been drafted yet, so hopefully after the draft.”

The Sabres will select him second overall June 26 in Florida, and they’ll eagerly await the answer.

“If it ends up that my heart tells me that I want to move on and try to play in the NHL, then that’s what I’m going to do,” he said in HarborCenter. “If my heart says I want to go back to BU, then that’s what I’m going to do.

“There’s pros and cons of both situations. That’s going to make my decision pretty tough. I don’t want to be playing professionally if I want to be back in college with BU. I don’t want be at BU if I prefer to be playing professionally.”
