Buffalo GM Darcy Regier still has some interest in re-signing Hecht Jochen.
He became an unrestricted free agent in the summer and ended up signing a two-year contract with Adler Mannheim to play in Germany. Regier said he would be in contact with the players' agent about the possibility of rejoining the Sabres. Buffalo forward Jason Pominville played with Hecht during the lockout in Germany. "He looks great. He's healthy. He's the same Jochen that he's always been," Pominville said. Hecht's last two seasons in Buffalo were disrupted by concussion issues, but he doesn't have any health issues now.
