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

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
