Sabres general manager Jason Botterill plans to keep Sabres star Jack Eichel around for the long-term.
Speaking in Rochester at an Amerks golf tournament, Botterill said negotiations are ongoing and that he hopes to sign Eichel sometime this season.
"We certainly want to get Jack signed up for the maximum amount as possible," he told News10NBC. "He has the same belief, all of our discussions have been very positive about the contract but also about his season and preparation in general. Whenever Phil's reached out to him, he's been very excited about his own health and being a better leader for the team."
