Tyler Myers has confirmed that he suffered a hairline fracture in his ankle from a blocked shot on Mar. 30 against Pittsburgh.
He probably wouldn't have been able to play in the opening round of the playoffs even if the Sabres had qualified for the postseason. Myers was limited to 55 games in 2011-12 after he missed just two contests in his previous two seasons in the NHL. He concluded this past campaign with eight goals, 15 assists and a plus-5 rating.
