A Makeover For Tyler Myers

from John Vogl of the Buffalo News, Tyler Myers can chuckle about it now, but he was a beaten man last season. He was a physical wreck, a mental disaster. It showed nearly every time he stepped on the ice or up to a microphone. Something had to give. Actually, pretty much everything had to give. “You have a year like you did last year, you want to change some things...

Source: Myers Had Knee Surgery 3 Weeks Ago

You haven’t heard about this from the mainstream media, and Sabres President Ted Black bristled when I asked him about it at last night’s Sabres New Media Summit, but I have it on very good authority that Tyler Myers underwent knee surgery at a local medical facility on May 23rd.

Buffalo Sabres’ Tyler Myers expected to be suspended today

Buffalo Sabres Tyler Myers will certainly be issued a suspension today, as the NHL Department of Safety have scheduled a hearing with the 6 foot, 8 inch defenseman. Myers receives a bit of a bump, and dishes out a leaning hit with a bit of elbow in the mix for good measure in the Buffalo zone. It’s a clear suspension for the 22-year-old.
