IIRC, the last I read something on Hecht was in a German interview about a month ago. He was still in Buffalo training three times a week with eight or so players on rented ice. His two kids are enrolled in Buffalo schools and since he doesn't know where he'll play (in the NHL) after the lockout, he hasn't pulled them out or moved the family to Mannheim yet.
