Buffalo Sabres Season Player Report Card: Cody Eakin

Cody Eakin is not necessarily a well-known commodity for his on-ice performance, but he is known throughout the league for having a really good head of hair.

He has only put up a combined 19 points in his two years in Buffalo, but his contributions go beyond points while playing in the bottom-six of the depth chart.

Eakin logged a power-play assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Coyotes. Eakin snapped a 14-game point drought with his helper on Kyle Okposo's tally in the first period.
