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 remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
