News: Hackett suffered a season-ending ACL in the second-to-last game of the regular season last year and will not be able to return until Christmas, The Buffalo News reports. Impact: It's been less than two months since Hackett's surgery to repair a torn ACL, so the Christmas return date is only a rough estimate for now. With Nathan Lieuwen and Andrey Makarov already vying for the starting job at AHL Rochester, there's no hurry for Hackett to return, but if he can't play, he can't convince the Sabres to keep him around long-term. The Sabres qualified Hackett in June, which means the organization is willing to be patient and give him a fair shake. The 24-year-old has 162 AHL appearances under his belt, but has managed to appear in just 21 NHL games.(RotoWire, )
