Jack Eichel is back on the ice.

The Buffalo Sabres center resumed skating Saturday, his first time back on the ice since suffering a high ankle sprain last month.

While there is no timetable for his return, Sabres coach Phil Housley told Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News that Eichel is itching to play again this season.

"You don't want to put any timeline on it but it's good to see him skating and that's a step in the right direction," Housley said. "Obviously, he wants to play some games before the end of the year."

Eichel has been sidelined for past 10 games but remains first in team scoring with 53 points.

The Mass. native missed 21 games last season due to a similar injury.
