Jochen Hecht: "I'm glad to be back at home" -
12th December 2012 - On Wednesday at 10.30 clock, all eyes of the visitors were directed training in the side hall of the SAP Arena on only one man: returnees Jochen Hecht. The 35-year NHL pro today completed his first training session with the Eagles and was on the ice in great shape. On Sunday, the native of Mannheim is the home game against Ingolstadt used. We met him after training today and asked him about his return, his goals and the last few months during the lockout.
Pominville, Hecht and the rest of Adler Mannheim are going to be part of the Spangler Cup which is later this month in Davos, Switzerland - Dec 26-Jan 31. Adler was placed in the group with Canada and HC Davos. The first game pits Adler vs Canada - Wednesday, Dec 26 - 2:15 pm ET - LIVE on TSN2. The loser of that game plays HC Davos - Thursday, Dec 27 - 2:15 pm ET - LIVE on TSN. The winner of that game plays HC Davos - Friday, Dec 28 - 2:00 pm ET - LIVE on TSN2.
The first place team in the group advances to the semifinals - the second place team advances to the quarterfinals - the third place team is eliminated. The other group features Fribourg Gotteron, Salavat Yulaev UFA and HC Vitkovice Steel. With the games being televised by TSN/TSN2 in Canada and most of the teams having NHL players on them, it would have been cool if either the NHL Network or the NBC Sports Network televised these games here in the United States. (Currently neither network has plans to televise the Spangler Cup.)
