Myers suffers broken wrist, out a month
Buffalo Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers had surgery to repair a broken wrist and will be out for at least a month, the team announced Monday.

Myers suffered the injury during the second period of Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes. It caused him to miss the entire third period.

The 22-year-old who won the Calder Trophy two seasons ago was off to a rough start, but he had a two-goal game against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday and appeared to be finding his way.

For the season, Myers has 2 goals, 4 assists and a minus-4 rating in 19 games.

The team also announced Monday afternoon that they recalled defenseman TJ Brennan from the American Hockey League.
Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
