Tyler Myers completed a very successful rookie season by being awarded the Calder Trophy for NHL rookie of the year. Myers seemed to be a lock after leading the Sabres in ice time this season and leading all rookies in assists. Myers proved that he could play in all situations and appears to be headed to a brilliant career, hopefully a long career in a Sabres uniform.

Myers was presented his award by actor Mark Wahlberg, yep that's right...Marky Mark presented the award. It was nice to hear the cheers from the crowd when Myers thanked the Sabres and the fans. They say Sabres fans travel well and that is evident when there are cheers at the award ceremony.
