BUFFALO, NY - Wednesday marked four weeks since Jack Eichel suffered a high-ankle sprain the day before the Sabres' season opener. Dan Bylsma said Eichel will see a doctor to find out what the next step is towards returning to the ice.

"I don't want to suggest that it's going to be today or tomorrow or the next day that he's getting on the ice but he's progressing quite nicely. He's been working out at another level the last four or five days and hopefully he continues to progress to get to the ice soon," Dan Bylsma said after Wednesday's morning skate.
