It appears as if Jack Eichel’s come back NHL could still be a little further. On Wednesday, Vegas Golden Knights Head Coach Peter DeBoer told reporters that Eichel “at least a month or two” will launch the brand.

“I don’t know what the timeframe will be,” DeBoer told reporters on Wednesday. “It will be at least a month or two before he plays.”

Eichel underwent surgery to artificially replace a herniated disc in his neck on November 12 and is expected to return soon. The 25-year-old player completed the procedure after being exchanged with the Golden Knights in a blockbuster contract sent Alex Tuch, Peyton Krebsand two draft options for Buffalo Sabers.

Eichel started skating on December 2 and took part in his first practice session with his new teammates on January 11.

Before heading to Vegas, Eichel had scored 139 goals and made 216 assists in 375 career games during his six seasons at Buffalo. He has not played since March 7, 2021 after initially suffering a neck injury.

After diagnosing the injury, Eichel disagreed with Sabers about the type of surgery he wanted to perform. In September, Eichel’s relationship with Sabers continued to deteriorate. He was stripped of his captaincy with the team and was not fit beyond a long-term injury reserve before being exchanged in November.
