BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - The Buffalo Sabres could be without Tyler Myers along the blue-line, as he faces a potential suspension for a hit he laid on New Jersey Devils forward Dainius Zubrus in Saturday's 2-1 win.
Myers is scheduled for a hearing with the NHL's Department of Player Safety on Monday.
The hit took place just about mid-way through the third period with the Sabres already shorthanded. Myers was hit with a minor penalty on the play that resulted in a Devils goal.
"It happened pretty quick, but it felt like I got all shoulder," said Myers after the game, before having a chance to watch the replay.
The hearing is expected to be over the phone, which typically carries a lesser penalty. Myers was suspended back in 2012 for three game for a boarding Montreal Canadians forward Scott Gomez.
