Top Player Notes:

Jack Eichel

  • At 20 years of age, Jack Eichel became just the fifth player in franchise history to lead the team (or tie for the team lead) in points before his 21st birthday:
    • 1970-71: Gilbert Perreault
    • 1971-72: Rick Martin
    • 1988-89: Pierre Turgeon
    • 1989-90: Pierre Turgeon
  • Jack Eichel’s .93 points per game this season ranked him 11th among NHL skaters with at least 20 games played and were the most by a Sabre under the age of 21 since Pierre Turgeon (1.33) in 1989-90.
  • From Feb. 14 to March 7, Jack Eichel recorded a career-best 11-game point streak (5+11) that tied as the fourth-longest streak in the NHL in 2016-17 and was the longest by a Sabre since Tim Connolly tallied points in 16 straight from Dec. 23, 2009 to Jan. 25, 2010.
    • The streak included a nine-game assist streak from Feb. 14 to March 4 that stands as the longest assist streak in the league this season.
  • The Sabres were 14-2-0 this season (22-5-1 in his career) when Jack Eichel recorded at least two points.

Brian Gionta

  • Brian Gionta appeared in his 1,000th NHL game on March 27 vs. Florida, becoming the 312th NHL player (23rd active player) to play in 1,000 games. He was also the 43rd American player to reach the milestone and the 10th player to do so as a member of the Sabres.

Evander Kane

  • With 25 even-strength goals in 70 games this season, Evander Kane finished the season ranked ninth in the league with .36 even-strength goals per game. It was the best rate by any Sabre since Jason Pominville scored 30 even-strength goals in 82 games (.37) in the 2006-07 season.

Matt Moulson

  • Matt Moulson finished the season tied for 11th in the league with 11 power-play goals. It was his highest total since the 2011-12 season and the most by a Sabre since Thomas Vanek and Drew Stafford each recorded 11 in 2010-11.

Ryan O’Reilly

  • Ryan O’Reilly ranked fifth in the league and set a career high with a faceoff win percentage of 58.0 percent. It was the fourth-best season by a Sabres center since the league began publishing faceoff percentage in 1997-98:

  • Rasmus Ristolainen’s 24 power-play assists tied for fourth-most in the league this season and tied for 21st-most in a season in franchise history.  It was the highest total by a Sabres defenseman since Garry Galley logged 28 on the 1995-96 season.
