Jets' Myers Scores In Win

News: Tyler Myers bagged his sixth goal of the season in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Kings.
Analysis: Tyler Myers has been maintaining an impressive scoring pace since joining the Jets, registering six points in eight games with his new club. The defenseman may not be able to stay at that pace, but he should reward fantasy owners with a continued uptick in offensive production on the playoff contending Jets.

Jets Excited About Myers' Offensive Potential

News: The Jets are hoping Tyler Myers can continue to provide some key offensive production from the blue line, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Analysis: Lawless believes that "A big part of what Tyler Myers will be expected to do in Winnipeg is get in position to receive passes from (Toby) Enstrom and then create offence. Enstrom needs a finisher and that is now the responsibility of Myers." Lawless went on to note that "Enstrom is an elite passer and Myers has a stinging shot and the ability to get it through." Myers has already tallied three points in just his first three games as a Jet. He's averaging more than 22 minutes of ice time per game with his new club, and has also found a spot on Winnipeg's second power-play unit. Fantasy owners can expect a noticeable, if not significant, uptick in production from Myers going forward. It seems as though a change in scenery was just what the former Calder Trophy winner needed.

Myers Gets First Two Points In Jets' Uniform

News: Tyler Myers picked up his first points in a Jets' uniform in Saturday's shootout win over the Red Wings. He set up two goals.
Analysis: Winnipeg could be one of the best places in the league for the big man to reset his potential. He'll deliver in the second pairing and his fantasy value is about to return. Aren't you glad you didn't give up on him?

Jets' Myers Should Be OK For Saturday

News: Tyler Myers, who hurt his leg after blocking a shot in Thursday's loss to the Predators, is expected to be fine for Sunday's match with the Red Wings, the Winnipeg Free Press reports. Said coach Paul Maurice on Friday, "Everybody is good."
Analysis: Tyler Myers skated 21:23 on Thursday and saw 1:44 of power play time. With Toby Enstrom and Dustin Byfuglien on the blue line, it seems likely Myers will work on the second or third pair with his new team for now, along with the second power play unit.

Jets' Myers Leaves With Injury

News: Tyler Myers was spotted wearing an ice pack on his left knee following Thursday's game against the Predators, Joshua Cooper of Yahoo! Sports reports.
Analysis: Tyler Myers went to the locker room after blocking a shot from Shea Weber, but did return and said after the game that he was fine. It seems that he should be okay moving forward, but it could be something to look out for in case something more is revealed in the next couple days.

Myers Expected To Play For Jets On Thursday

News: Tyler Myers is expected to make his Jets debut Thursday against the Predators, Rick Ralph of TSN 1290 reports.
Analysis: It's not immediately clear where Tyler Myers will settle in with his new club, but suffice to say, he won't be seeing the 25-plus minutes per night he was routinely playing on the Sabres' top pair. Instead, look for Myers to assume a depth role on defense for the Jets, which is probably better suited to his talent level. The 25-year-old blueliner had shown some offensive upside earlier in his career, but has seen his point totals decline in each of his last four full seasons. Perhaps the change of scenery can finally ignite Myers' lagging production.

Sabres' Myers Headed To Winnipeg In Trade

News: Tyler Myers was traded to the Jets as part of a seven-player deal Wednesday, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: The headliner of the deal is injured winger Evander Kane (shoulder), who will head to Buffalo along with defenseman Zach Bogosian and goalie prospect Jason Kasdorf, while Winnipeg receives Tyler Myers, forward Drew Stafford, prospects Joel Armia and Brendan Lemieux, and a future first-round draft pick. At 6-foot-8, Myers will offer the Jets an imposing presence in front of the net, but the blueliner's downturn in offensive productivity since his Calder Trophy-winning 2009-10 season has stalled a once-promising career. That being said, the 25-year-old Myers hasn't had much talent around him the last few seasons, and a move to a playoff-contending Winnipeg squad could be revitalizing. While Myers will likely see a reduction in ice time from the 25 minutes per game he's been averaging with the Sabres, he'll almost surely improve upon his wretched minus-15 rating while seeing more favorable scoring chances.

Sabres' Myers Breaks Power Play Drought

News: Tyler Myers scored his first power play goal of the season in a tough 2-1 loss to Ottawa on Tuesday.
Analysis: Yes, that power play goal, thanks to a Zemgus Girgensons screen, was Tyler Myers' first of the season. The 6-foot-8 defenseman has a booming shot, but has scored just four goals this season in a trying year for him and the team. A game after the Sabres recorded a franchise-low 10 shots on goal, the team set a season-high against the Sens with 36. Myers alone had four. He has two goals in three games and he's trending up as the trade deadline nears. He's a major trade target for Cup contenders.

Sabres' Myers Absent From Practice

News: Tyler Myers was not on the ice or Friday's practice, reports Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News.
Analysis: Tyler Myers suffered an ankle injury against Edmonton on Jan. 29 but played the next three games without a hitch, including 23:38 against St. Louis on Thursday. It could just be a maintenance day for Myers, but his name has been in the rumor mill, leading to speculation that a trade is imminent. The frontrunner for Myers right now is reportedly Anaheim. The Sabres have back-to-back games over the weekend against the Stars and Islanders.

Myers (Ankle) Will Play Friday

News: Tyler Myers (ankle) is in the lineup Friday against the Canucks.
Analysis: Tyler Myers injured his ankle blocking a shot in Thursday's game, but was expected to be fine for Friday. That is indeed the case, as he was on the ice for warmups alongside Josh Gorges.

Sabres' Myers Suffers Injury, Expected To Play

News: Tyler Myers suffered an injury blocking a shot Thursday, but is expected to play Friday against the Canucks, Bill Hoppe of the Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Tyler Myers reportedly blocked a shot off his ankle, but appears to be on track to play Friday, indicating the injury isn't serious. If by some chance he is unavailable Friday, he should receive an updated status prior to Friday's opening faceoff.

Sabres PP Using Myers As Screen

News: The Sabres power play was practicing with Tyler Myers in front of the net instead of the points, reports the Olean Times Herald.
Analysis: Tyler Myers is Buffalo's biggest player at 6-foot-8 and serves as an ideal screen on the power play, even though he's got a pretty good point shot. The Sabres' offense has struggled all year and head coach Ted Nolan is trying anything to get the team going. Myers has zero power play goals this season after scoring three last year, and has just one goal in 36 games so far. His shooting percentage is just 1.7 percent but he should get some chances to score from in-close at his new spot. The Bruins have had similar success playing Zdeno Chara as the screen, but only time will tell if this move will pan out for the Sabres. Myers' fantasy value remains minimal at this point.

Sabres' Myers (Lower Body) To Return Tuesday

News: Tyler Myers (lower body) will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Devils.
Analysis: Tyler Myers was expected to rejoin the lineup at some point this week and that date appears to be Tuesday. He has been out since Dec. 20 due to the injury, but returned to practice Friday. The team will have to activate him from injured reserve before the game, which should come either later Monday or at some point Tuesday.

Myers (Lower Body) Skates With Sabres On Friday

News: Tyler Myers (lower body) skated with the Sabres during Friday's morning session, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: He won't be an option for the game later in the evening against the Panthers, but it bodes well for Tyler Myers' chances of being available at some point during the Sabres' four-game road trip that begin Saturday. The team is expected to activate the blueliner at some point next week.

Sabres' Myers (Lower Body) Could Return Next Week

News: Tyler Myers (lower body) is nearing a return and could join the team on its upcoming roadtrip.
Analysis: Tyler Myers is reportedly "close" to making a return, and while he likely won't be able to play in the first of four straight road games Saturday in New York, coach Ted Nolan left the door open for a potential return later in the trip. Buffalo plays Tuesday in New Jersey, Thursday in Carolina and Friday in Tampa Bay.

Sabres' Myers (Lower Body) Placed On IR

News: Tyler Myers (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve, The Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Tyler Myers was able to get in a non-contact skate Tuesday, but he's not expected to be back to full health until the weekend at the earliest. The transaction clears room for Tyson Strachan (upper body) to end his own stint on injured reserve.

Sabres' Myers Looks To Be Out Saturday

News: Tyler Myers (lower body) wasn't on the ice for Saturday's morning skate and looks to be out for the tilt later in the evening with the Islanders, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: Prior to the three-day holiday break, coach Ted Nolan hadn't ruled out Tyler Myers from returning to action Saturday, but after reassessing his condition when the team reunited for morning skate, the medical staff evidently determined he wasn't fit to play. Myers will retain a week-to-week designation for now, with no upgrade to his status coming until he resumes skating.

Sabres' Myers (Lower Body) "Week-To-Week"

News: Tyler Myers (lower body) is considered "week-to-week," but hasn't been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Islanders, Mike Harrington of Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Tyler Myers missed Saturday's contest and the news definitely rules him out for at least Tuesday. His next chance to return would be Saturday, and while he hasn't been ruled out, the week-to-week label would make it seem unlikely he will be available.

Sabres' Myers (Lower Body) Out Sunday

News: Tyler Myers (lower body) will miss Sunday's game against the Bruins, Mike Harrington of Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Tyler Myers was initially listed as questionable due to the lower body injury, but apparently isn't healthy enough to go. The newly-recalled Tim Schaller will likely draw into the lineup in his place.

Sabres' Myers Questionable For Sunday

News: Tyler Myers (lower body) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bruins, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: With Pat Kaleta expected to miss the game due to illness, the Sabres may need to recall an additional forward in case Tyler Myers cannot play.

Sabres' Myers Suffers Lower-Body Injury

News: Tyler Myers left Saturday's game against Colorado with a lower-body injury and will not return, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.
Analysis: We'll consider Tyler Myers day-to-day until we learn more about the injury. The Sabres play two games in the next three days: Sunday at Boston and Tuesday at Detroit.

Sabres' Myers Gets Assist

News: Tyler Myers recorded an assist and spent two minutes in the penalty box in Monday's win over the Senators.
Analysis: Tyler Myers saw a season-high 31:09 of ice time in the shootout victory, bringing his average TOI up to 25:39 for the year, which would mark a career high. Despite the ample minutes, Myers isn't close to flashing the scoring ability he showed as a rookie in 2009-10, nor last season. A two percent shooting mark likely has much to do with his absence of goals, but it still seems unlikely that Myers will cash in on the immense promise he displayed just a few years earlier.

Sabres' Myers To Return Friday

News: Tyler Myers (undisclosed) was a full participant in morning skate and looks set to play Friday against the Canadiens, Bill Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Tyler Myers slotted in on the Sabres' power-play unit and paired up with Tyson Strachan on defense, demonstrating that he's ready to play. He was forced out of one game due to the undisclosed issue.

Sabres' Myers Questionable To Play Friday

News: Tyler Myers (undisclosed) is questionable to play Friday against the Canadiens, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
Analysis: After he was a surprise scratch Wednesday with the injury, Tyler Myers was unable to practice Thursday morning. The team will reassess his condition following Friday's early skate before determining if he'll be fit to play. Andre Benoit would take Myers' spot in the lineup in the event he can't go.

Sabres' Myers A Scratch Wednesday Night

News: Tyler Myers will be a scratch Wednesday night against the Jets, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: The exact reason for Tyler Myers' absence has yet to be disclosed by the team, but Sabres Hockey Central suggests it may be due to a hand injury sustained Saturday. Andre Benoit would be one potential candidate to move up to the third defensive pairing Wednesday, though this is merely speculative at this point.
