BUFFALO, N.Y. — On Friday Jack Eichel's agents, Peter Fish and Peter Donatelli, released a statement about the frustration the two sides seem to be having.

The Buffalo News' Lance Lysowski posted the statement to his Twitter sending Sabres Twitter in a frenzy. 

In the statement, Eichel's agents said quote "the process is not working."

The statement went on to say that Eichel and his team were under the impression that Sabres were on board with the Sabres star getting Artificial Disc Replacement surgery and that has since changed.

The issue at hand is if Eichel can't get medical clearance then he will be left out of the start of the NHL season.

This comes only days Sabres general manager Kevyn Adams said that the situation between Eichel and the Sabres was "under control."
