In the 2019-20 season, Eichel was on-pace to set a new career-high in points with 93 points in 81 games played. His 78 points in 68 games had the 23-year-old ranked 10th in league scoring. Eichel had set a career-high in goals this season with 36, and was on pace to score 43 before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down the regular season. His 36 goals ranked eighth overall in the NHL, and he also ranked fifth in the league with seven multi-goal games.
This season was an electric one for Eichel, who recorded three separate point streaks of seven or more games. This included a 17-game point streak that came up one game short of Gilbert Perreault's franchise record. However, this only happened because he missed the chance of the 18th game due to an illness on Dec. 19.
Going back to the 2017-18 season, this is the third consecutive season that Eichel has been named the team's Most Valuable Player.
Eichel also made a number of contributions to the Buffalo community with his involvement with Best Buddies WNY, the Courage of Carly Fund at Roswell Park, and Breaking Barriers Buffalo. One of his most notable contribution came during the COVID-19 pandemic when he donated 5,000 Bauer face shields to Buffalo hospitals.
In 54 games played this season, Olofsson was able to reach the 20-goal mark, while also compiling 22 assists for 42 points. His 20 goals ranked second among all rookies in the NHL behind Chicago Blackhawks forward Dominik Kubalik, while his 42 points was tied for the fourth-highest mark among all rookies in the NHL with New York Rangers defenseman Adam Fox.
