Sabres demote MacArthur to AHL, opening spot for Hecht
MacArthur had been a healthy scratch for three games before returning to the Sabres lineup in a 3-1 loss to Washington on Wednesday.
He had 15 points (eight goals, seven assists) in 37 games with Buffalo this season, but was limited to two goals and two assists in his past 15.
Hecht has been cleared to practice after missing seven games with a groin injury and could return for the Sabres' next game on Saturday at Carolina.
