Myers Suspended for Three

The NHL announced on Tuesday afternoon that Buffalo Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers has been suspended for three games for his boarding hit on Montreal Canadiens forward Scott Gomez.  For more details about the hit, watch the embedded video from NHL.com, explaining the suspension.

Myers will be eligible to return to the line-up on March 21st, when the Sabres host the Canadiens.

ImplicationsThis looks like it will be a minor hiccup for Allan S., as he quests for some money in the pool this season. Allan has the hottest team in the draft at the moment and Myers has contributed to that over the last month. Allan jumped into the money on Monday night with a good start to the week and now he'll lose a few man-games, which will hinder his chances going forward.
