Eichel (ankle) is practicing fully Monday, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports.

The center was practicing with the top power-play lines, and it seems like he'll be playing major minutes when he jumps back in, which could be as early as Tuesday. He hasn't played yet this season, but if he improves from last season, he will be a fantastic fantasy player.
