Eichel leads the way in NHL for disk replacement surgeries

              FILE - Vegas Golden Knights center Jack Eichel speaks during a news conference after an NHL hockey game against the Colorado Avalanche Wednesday, Feb. 16, 2022, in Las Vegas. Jack Eichel fought for the right to have a never-been-performed-on-an-NHL-player sort of neck surgery. The sharpshooting center for the Golden Knights by way of the Buffalo Sabres may be doing for backs/necks what Tommy John once did for the elbows of baseball pitchers — save careers.
