Sabres' Myers has no timetable for return

WASHINGTON -- Anyone hoping the return of Tyler Myers will spark the Sabres will have to keep hoping. The defenseman isn't sure when he'll be back from the broken wrist that has sidelined him since Nov. 19.

"It's not quite where it needs to be for me to jump back in," Myers told The News after the Sabres' optional skate for tonight's game against the Capitals. "It's just taking a little longer than we hoped for. I'll come back as soon as I'm ready. It's just a matter of making sure I don't come back too early to put it at risk for reinjury."

Myers, who has been alternating between wearing a hard splint and a soft wrap this week, has a doctor visit scheduled for Monday.
