Sabres' Jack Eichel fails physical, stripped of captaincy

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Jack Eichel was stripped of his captaincy by the Sabres on Thursday, raising further questions about his future in Buffalo due to a widening rift over how to treat a neck injury that has sidelined the center for six months.

With the two sides at a stalemate, general manager Kevyn Adams announced the decision to remove the "C" as the Sabres opened training camp without Eichel, who will be placed on injured reserve after failing his physical.

"I feel the captain is the heartbeat of your team," Adams said. "And we're in a situation where we were in the past and where we are now that we felt we needed to address that."
