was a surprise participant at the Sabres' morning skate Friday.
It was the first time he was with the team since suffering getting hurt in a game at Toronto on March 29. The Sabres list him as having an upper-body injury, but the Buffalo News is reporting Hecht has a concussion.
"Jochen feels good," Sabres coach Lindy Ruff
said. "He's skating now, and hopefully next day or so he can get involved in full practices."
With Derek Roy also skating and nearing the four-month anniversary of his torn quadriceps
, could the Sabres be close to having two major pieces back in their offensive arsenal?
