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

Because of the way they play and their skill set I don't think they're fourth-line players, so in my mind I'm looking at one of those guys I'll have to move over to the wing.
