Jack Eichel is wasting no time becoming part of Buffalo.
The Sabres' newly signed center will visit Roswell Park Cancer Institute on Thursday afternoon. He will meet with some of Roswell Park’s youngest patients, the members of Carly’s Club for Kids and Cancer Research in Western New York.
“We are so looking forward to Jack’s visit to Roswell Park, and there will be a lot of special moments as people see him coming their way,” said Candace S. Johnson, Roswell Park's president and CEO. "This young man has an exciting future ahead of him, and what a tremendous way to launch his career -- by meeting some of his biggest fans and bringing cheer to our patients and families just when they most need a boost.”
