Buffalo Sabres rising star Jack Eichel injured his ankle in practice Wednesday morning when his skate became entangled with Zemus Girgenson. “I was just trying to get the puck, and we got tangled,” said Girgenson, “He just fell awkward.” Eichel screamed in pain after hitting and grabbed his ankle.

Sabres Coach Dan Bylsma confirmed it was an ankle injury after practice and said he will be evaluated later in the day. The Buffalo Sabres open the season Thursday night hosting the Montreal Canadiens.
