Is Hecht out for the season?

Can someone answer this for me. I didn't see anything but a friend swears he saw that on NHL Network last night.
I know there's mystery around his injury but Sabres have not said anything definitively have they?

From TBN's blog yesterday:

Quote:
Ruff said it's likely Jochen Hecht, who has missed 12 of the last 16 games with an upper-body injury, will miss the final three games of the regular season.

"Jochen, there’s no time line yet," Ruff said. "At this point, it’d be pretty tough to see him."

I've heard people mention concussion, but if that were the case I don't think they'd try (twice) to bring him back on the ice for games like they did.

And he certainly wouldn't be on the ice in his last game only to have to come off after 6 minutes or whatever it was. If they knew it was a consussion, they wouldn't have risked it if he was so borderline.

A neck injury perhaps?

Doubt it - Hecht admitted back in the preseason that, while deformed, his finger injury from last spring wasn't causing him any pain.

From the daily updates by TBN and WGR about Hecht not being in practices or workouts, it sounds more serious like a shoulder or head injury.

Agreed. PLUS, Ruff has openly admitted that Hecht's injury is NOT pain related. That tells me it's a concussion.

I don't think he'll be back, especially for the first round.

I did a quick Google search. See below:

http://webcache.googleusercontent.co...www.google.com

"Hecht has the same injury, but Lindy Ruff says there's no pain involved which is weird. He missed four games and played two, then sat out five games and played two. Ruff said, "We're concerned obviously, he's tried but hasn't been able to so we just take it as part of the game." Ruff said he's still trying to figure out what it is and how long the forward will be out."

Also, Hamilton and WGR reported the same thing.
