Michael Nylander went to the Rochester Amerks this Summer searching for a way to get back into the NHL. What he found however might be an painful and unfortunate ending to his career. According to the Democrat and Chronicle via Puck Daddy, Nylander broke his neck in a game against the Grand Rapids Griffins, and the injury might prove to be career ending.

"He'll definitely have to do some soul-searching when he has recovered," Amerks coach Chuck Weber said. "The little bit I do know him, I don't think this is the way he'll want to go out."

No matter how you want to go out, it's hard to recover from a broken neck, particularly at the age of 38. The injury will keep Nylander out for the rest of the season, and it will be a long road of rehab if he wants to come back next season. This might be the end of the road for Michael Nylander.
