Tyler Myers injury: Sabres defenseman out for the season with broken leg

Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Spor

The Buffalo Sabres' dismal season just found its exclamation point.

Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers, a 23-year-old who won the Calder Trophy for rookie of the year in 2010, suffered a broken leg in last night's game against the Montreal Canadiens. He will miss the rest of the regular season. The Sabres currently sit in 11th place in the Eastern Conference, six points back of eighth, and do not figure to make any sort of playoff run. This, therefor, is likely the last we've seen of Myers until next fall.

Myers has suffered setbacks in both play and injuries since his rookie season. His point totals have dropped from the 48 in 09-10 but at least 10 points every season since, culminating in Myers having just eight in 39 games in 2012-13. He's also been a minus player for the first time in his career, going minus-8. This comes after scoring 23 points in just 55 injury-and-healthy-scratch plagued games in 2011-12.
