The Buffalo Sabres will be without the services of defenceman Tyler Myers for the next 4-6 weeks.
According to head coach Lindy Ruff, Myers had surgery on a broken wrist Monday morning; an injury that occurred in the second period of Saturday's game against the Phoenix Coyotes.
"It happened just on an awkward play, nothing you would ever notice," Ruff said. "Just one of those freak-like incidents."
The 21-year-old had a rough start to the season, including being a healthy scratch recently. He has two goals and four assists in 19 games this year, with a minus- 4 rating.
The Sabres are already without goaltender Ryan Miller, defenceman Mike Weber and forwards Jochen Hecht, Tyler Ennis and Cody McCormick due to various injuries.
T.J. Brennan has been recalled to replace Myers.
