Vegas management tries to justify Eichel's poor play

Jack Eichel left Buffalo infamous and absolutely hated, and arrived in Vegas in February.

The end of his first season with the Golden Knights was a success, racking up 14 goals and 11 assists, with 25 points over 34 games with a +3 on ice. Equaling out to .73 PPG and a 60-point pace for the season.

Impressive, considering how much pain he was in the last 6 weeks with his new team.

What most people probably wouldn't know is that he ... broke his thumb in a bad way about three or four weeks into his return.

It was non-displaced so he didn't have to have surgery, but it was a bad fracture and the guy didn't miss a game

Eichel's injury occurred on March 17th against the Panthers, when he blocked a shot.
