BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Sabres captain Jack Eichel questioned his future in Buffalo on Monday by saying there's a "a disconnect" with the team on whether to have surgery to repair his herniated disk.

"I think the most important thing is just trying to get healthy and figure out a way to be available to play hockey next year, wherever that might be," Eichel said.

Eichel said he favors having surgery, while suggesting the team has a different opinion regarding the best course of treatment. He said he is contractually required to follow the team's recommendation on whether to have surgery.
