NEW YORK, N.Y. - Buffalo Sabres defenceman Tyler Myers was suspended for three games without pay by the NHL on Monday for an illegal check to New Jersey Devils forward Dainius Zubrus' head.

Myers was assessed a minor penalty for the hit Saturday night in the Sabres' 2-1 home victory.

The suspension will cost Myers $84,615.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
