In a decision that drew a sigh of relief from Sabres fans, Darcy Regier announced today that 19-year-old really good hockey player, Tyler Myers, will stay in the NHL. What’s even better, is that it will be with the Sabres!
Myers is +8 through 9 games with the Sabres, adding two goals and three assists, and seeing plenty of ice time. He’s been a staple on the blue line for the Sabres.
Playing 10 games in the NHL means losing Junior hockey eligibility, and at 19, Myers would have to play for the Western Hockey League’s Kelowna Rockets instead of the Sabres AHL affiliate Portland Pirates.
Some of us thought that Regier was mulling the decision over, being deliberate and coy as a joke. If so; not funny.
But thanks for doing the right thing here.
Keep it up, Tyler.
