Sabres D Myers out for season with leg injury as Buffalo plays out the string

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Buffalo Sabres defenceman Tyler Myers will miss the rest of the season after breaking a bone in his leg during the team's 5-1 loss to Montreal Thursday.

Friday's announcement by general manager Darcy Regier marks a disappointing end to what's been a forgettable season for the high-priced defenceman. Myers has struggled with consistency at both ends of the ice while in the first season of a seven-year, $38.5 million contract he signed before the start of the 2011-12 season.

The injury also is the latest setback for a Sabres team that's in jeopardy of missing the playoffs for a second straight season, and is already rebuilding for the future.

Regier did not say how Myers suffered the injury.

Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
