Hecht Agrees to Three-Year Deal

August 15, 2005

Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier announced today the team has agreed to terms on a three-year deal with restricted free agent forward Jochen Hecht. Hecht would have become an unrestricted free agent after the upcoming NHL season.

The 28-year-old native of Mannheim, Germany, had a career-best season with Buffalo in 2003-04, scoring 52 points (15+37) in 64 games. During the second half of the season, Hecht scored 37 points (12+25) in 40 games, second only to Daniel Briere’s 38. Hecht also posted two four-point games in the second half. He finished the year fifth in team scoring, and and led the team with a plus/minus of +17. Hecht also served as an alternate captain during January and February.

Hecht has scored 196 points (73+126) in 333 career NHL games with Buffalo, St. Louis and Edmonton. He scored a career-high 19 goals with St. Louis in 2000-01.

During the 2004-05 season, Hecht played with Adler Mannheim in the German League, scoring 50 points (16+34) in 36 games. He also represented Germany in the 2005 World Championships, leading the team in scoring with four points (3+1) in six games. A veteran of international competition, Hecht was a member of Germany's 1998 and 2002 Olympic teams, and 1996 and 2004 World Cup teams.

The Sabres acquired Hecht from Edmonton on June 22, 2002, in exchange for the 31st and 36th picks in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. He was originally St. Louis' first choice (2nd round, 49th overall) in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft.
