Who Wears The “C” In Bufalo

from the Buffalo News,

At some point this week, perhaps as soon as this morning, Buffalo Sabres coach Lindy Ruff will address his captain.

Ruff rotated the “C” throughout the team’s six preseason games, but only one player wore it twice, underscoring Ruff’s long-held affinity for the underappreciated Jochen Hecht. O kapitan, mein kapitan?

When the Sabres open the regular season Friday against the New York Islanders in HSBC Arena, the versatile German forward could be just the third captain in club history from the Eastern Hemisphere (after Alexander Mogilny and Miroslav Satan).
