Eichel lets loose: Sabres captain `fed up' with losing

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Sabres captain Jack Eichel kept his frustrations in check for the first 14 minutes of an end-of-season interview session with Buffalo-area reporters Thursday.

It wasn't until he was asked to assess the future of a team that's not made the playoffs during his five-year tenure, when Eichel let loose.

"Listen, I'm fed up with losing, and I'm fed up and I'm frustrated," he said during a 27-minute Zoom call in which he was only able to dial in by phone. "It's definitely not an easy pill to swallow right now. It's been a tough couple of months. It's been a tough five years with where things have went."
