It still appears to be over a week if not two until he returns from the broken arm he suffered in preseason.

I was at the game in Montreal on Saturday. I was staying at the same hotel that the Sabres stayed at. While walking around the hotel, I saw Jochen Hecht reading. I asked him about when he'd be coming back. He said probably 2 more weeks.

Hecht has also decided to change his number to hopefully increase his luck when it comes to injuries. Funny, if I wanted to chang my luck, Denis Hamel's number is not the way I'd go.

Jochen Hecht will be returning to the line up soon but he'll have a different look. Instead of his usual number 71, Hecht has decided to change his jersey number to 55 to try to change his bad luck with injuries which have plagued him since last season.

Hecht practiced with the team on Tueday and Lindy says that he may be ready to play on Friday.

Sabres winger Jochen Hecht said he hopes Friday's home game against the Pittsburgh Penguins will mark his return from the broken left arm he suffered in preseason.

Hecht will need to wear a brace on the wrist for three weeks that makes it uncomfortable to shoot, but noted the chance to play makes it worth putting up with.

"What we need is a clear indication of how he can handle the puck," Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said. "My concern and the team's concern is the strength in that wrist and how he can handle it."

Once Hecht is activated from winger Jason Botterill likely will go to Rochester if he clears waivers.
