Tyler Myers Out For Remainder Of Season

For Tyler Myers – the 2013 is over.  During last night’s game against the Montreal Canadiens; Tyler Myers was blocking shots with the Buffalo Sabres down two men.

For the young defender, not only were his efforts in vain; Montreal scored on the 5-3, but they have also ended his 2013 regular season.  With little hope for the playoffs, Tyler Myers is already preparing his summer home, thanks to a broken leg suffered when blocking one of two shots on the Montreal powerplay.

Watching the play unfold, it was the best the Sabres penalty kill looked in awhile, Myers got down and blocked two wild shots from the point, and left he ice in obvious pain after his shift.  The Buffalo Sabres confirmed today that the Sabres tallest defenseman suffered a broken leg on the play.

The Buffalo Sabres were on an extended penalty kill down two men, as Mike Weber was in the box for delay of game (puck over the glass) and Jochen Hecht in the box for high sticking.  It is the end of another difficult season for the highly touted defenseman – who should be leading the team instead of constantly drawing the ire of fans and management.

Looks like next season will be another watch and wait to see how Tyler Myers performs.

    Well there goes another reason DR should have never traded away Brennan. Too bad for the kid I hope him the best. Despite his downfalls he did try at least, which more that you can say about a few other Sabres. Don’t want to mention any names but cough, 21 cough!!

    Myers is just plain snake-bit. Everything he is doing is going badly. Has anyone checked his horoscope or biorythms lately? Maybe he has bad feng-shui in his house!

    Yesterday he had two normal shots off the glass – good plays both. But both hit a stanchion and went backwards. You couldn’t repeat that if you tried 1000 times. The play where he was driving into the offensive zone and his dump-in bounced backwards lead directly to the first Canadiens’ goal.

    Now his leg is broken.

    The kid is cursed.
