‘In the summer of 1987, Cyr was shot in the abdomen by a taxi driver during a robbery attempt in the Dominican Republic. He missed 17 games and had only one goal in 20 games when he was traded to the Rangers on Dec. 31, 1987 for Mike Donnelly and a draft choice that eventually was used to select Alexander Mogilny. Cyr finished his Sabre career with 85 goals and 111 assists in 342 games. The forward had injury problems during his time with the Rangers and was eventually released. He finished his NHL career in the Hartford Whalers organization.’
