Tyler Myers suspended three games

The Sabres will be without their most vertical defenseman for three games thanks to his high hit on Dainius Zubrus.

The Buffalo Sabres will be without Tyler Myers for their next three games, thanks to his hit to the head of Dainius Zubrus of the Devils this past Saturday night.

Myers had a phone hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety today, where the punishment was dished out. Myers was assessed a two minute "Illegal Hit To The Head" minor penalty during the game, while for his part, Zubrus never left the game and was practicing with New Jersey today.

This is the second three game suspension in his career for the 6'8'' defenseman, the other one coming back in 2012 for a hit from behind on Scott Gomez, and as TBN's John Vogl writes, it's coming at a particularly bad time for Myers, who's been wearing an A on his sweater and playing very well over the past few weeks.

The big man will be eligible to return on Tuesday, January 14th when the Philadelphia Flyers come to town. Check out the suspension video below, and let us know whether or not you agree with the decision.
