Golden Knights center Jack Eichel is doubtful for Saturday’s game against Los Angeles at T-Mobile Arena, and coach Pete DeBoer said his upper-body injury is a “big concern.”

The Knights were still awaiting test results Friday morning.

“It could be anywhere from a couple of days to more than that,” DeBoer said.

Eichel blocked a shot late in the second period of Thursday’s 5-3 victory over Florida and did not play in the third.
