Sabres' Murray to Eichel on stage: 'I'm shaking more than you'

Tim Murray has called the selection of Jack Eichel the highlight of his drafting career. It apparently was one his more nervous and exhilarating moments, too.

The NHL had a microphone on Eichel during the draft, and it caught the exchanges the center had as he walked to the stage and put on his Sabres jersey.

"I'm shaking more than you," Murray told Eichel as they posed for pictures.

As NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman announced Buffalo was on the clock for the No. 2 pick, Eichel turned to his friends and family to say, "Good wings there."

Bettman greeted Eichel and his selection by saying, "That's awesome. Welcome to the NHL."

Here's a direct link to the video.
