Buffalo (WKBW.com) Sabres Head Coach Lindy Ruff revealed on Monday that defenseman Tyler Myers will miss 4-6 weeks with a broken wrist suffered during Saturdays loss to the Phoenix Coyotes.
Ruff says the injury happened on an "awkward play" against the Coyotes. Myers was scheduled to have surgery on Monday.
Myers has 2 goals and 4 assists in 19 games. He was a healthy scratch earlier in the month for the first time in his NHL career against Montreal on November 14th.
With Myers on the shelf for at least a month the Sabres announced that defenseman TJ Brennan has been recalled from the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League.
Brennan (6’1”, 214 lbs., 4/3/89) joins the Sabres on his second career recall after a brief stint with the team last week. Brennan was recalled prior to Buffalo’s game at Carolina, but did not dress for the game and has yet to make his NHL debut.
In his third professional season, Brennan has played 17 games with Rochester, compiling seven points (3+4) and eight penalty minutes. In 2010-11, he ranked second among Portland Pirates (AHL) defensemen with 39 points (15+24) in 72 games.
In 154 career AHL games, Brennan has totaled 69 points (24+45) and 121 penalty minutes. He was selected by the Sabres in the second round (31st overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
