Sabres sign Jochen Hecht

The Buffalo Sabres announced Sunday that center Jochen Hecht has agreed to terms on a one-year contract.

Hecht, 35, played in 22 games with the Sabres during an injury-plagued 2011-12 season, scoring four goals and finishing with eight points. The native of Mannheim, Germany, tied his career-best mark with a three-game goal streak from Nov. 26 to Dec. 2.

The Sabres acquired Hecht from Edmonton prior to the 2002-03 season. He has 133 goals and 331 points in 566 regular-season games with Buffalo. Hecht ranks 20th in franchise history in games played, goals and points. He leads all active Sabres with a career plus/minus rating of plus-94, ranking him 23rd among active NHL players.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
