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.

Sabres' Myers Records Two Assists

News: Tyler Myers chipped in a pair of assists to help down the Sharks in Tuesday's 4-1 win.
Analysis: That was Tyler Myers' first multi-point game of the season, and he now has a miniature hot streak going with points in consecutive games. The win was a memorable one for the Sabres, with captain Brian Gionta scoring his first two goals of the season, which the city of Buffalo is hoping represents a sign of better things to come. The Sabres have been very patient with Myers, and he's really picked up his play in the absence of Josh Gorges. However, he'll need to prove himself a lot more to be considered a bona fide fantasy asset again.

Sabres' Myers Nabs First Goal

News: Tyler Myers registered his first goal of the season in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: With just three points and a minus-9 rating through 19 games, Tyler Myers continues to disappoint after his Calder Trophy-winning rookie campaign of 2009-10 hinted at potential greatness. Though he's enjoyed almost a three-minute spike in ice time from a season ago, it hasn't translated in any additional scoring for Myers.

Sabres' Myers Tossed From Game

News: Tyler Myers was handed a 10-minute misconduct at 12:02 of the third period, ending his night prematurely as the Sabres lost 4-1 to Anaheim on Wednesday.
Analysis: Asides from his early departure, Tyler Myers had a pretty strong game, finishing with two shots, three hits, two blocked shots and one takeaway. His absence was certainly missed as the Ducks iced the game when Corey Perry completed his hat trick late in the third period. Myers was originally called for holding Sami Vatanen, and was then handed a misconduct for going after him. Myers now has 16 PIM and 17 shots in seven games, but has yet to register a single point. He still hasn't taken that leap everyone is expecting and the Detroit Red Wings are rumored to be interested in his services, but are unwilling to part with Dylan Larkin, their first-round pick in 2014. Myers still has tons of potential but may need to move elsewhere to really blossom.

Sabres' Myers Begins Camp With Gorges

News: Tyler Myers will be paired with veteran shutdown defenseman Josh Gorges to begin the training camp, reports The Buffalo News.
Analysis: As expected, the mercurial Tyler Myers will be paired with the dependable Gorges to begin the season as the Sabres' top pairing. Myers has struggled over the past few seasons since winning the Calder Trophy as the league's top rookie, and often looks overwhelmed by the amount of pressure placed on him. The 6-foot-8 defenseman has plenty of talent but just hasn't been able to realize it. Hopefully, Gorges will take some pressure off his shoulders and also allow Myers to take more of an offensive role. If all goes well, Myers could be in line for the best season in his rookie year. He is, without a doubt, the Sabres' best defenseman in fantasy, though the team is expected to finish near the bottom of the standings again.

Asking Price High For Sabres' Myers

News: The Sabres were looking for three pieces - including a first round pick - at the NHL draft in exchange for Tyler Myers and that price hasn't come down yet, reports theScore.
Analysis: The Sabres are undergoing a re-vamp as general manager Tim Murray prepares to put his stamp on the team. Christian Ehrhoff was bought out, which makes Tyler Myers the de facto number one defenseman in Buffalo. The Sabres are obviously not convinced Myers can improve much more in Buffalo, but are still commanding a very high price for the 6-foot-8 former rookie of the year. The Canucks are reportedly interested in Myers, who played junior hockey nearby in Kelowna. A move out of Buffalo should benefit the team and Myers.

Sabres' Myers Collects Assist In Win At Worlds

News: Canada defeated Slovakia 4-1 in the second game at the World Championships and Tyler Myers collected an assist, bouncing back from a subpar performance in his first game.
Analysis: Tyler Myers had the second assist on Joel Ward's third period goal as the Canadians overcame a slow start to win the game. Despite his 6-8 frame, Myers is expected to be more than just a big body on the blue line and is still trying to regain his Rookie of the Year form from a few years back that saw him score 48 points in 82 games. Various injuries and inconsistent play have limited his effectiveness, and the hope is that Myers will gain some much-needed experience at the World Championships as he prepares to be one of the Sabres' leaders next year.

Sabres' Myers Ineffective At World Championships

News: As one of the team's more experienced defensemen, Tyler Myers continued his unimpressive play this year, recording just one shot on goal and two penalty minutes in Friday's loss to France at the World Championships.
Analysis: Paired with 6-5 defenseman Braydon Coburn, Canada's twin towers pairing was generally ineffective against a much weaker Team France. Tyler Myers has been oft-criticized in recent years for not living up to expectations, and his play hasn't improved much in his first game at the World Championships. On more than one occasion he coughed up the puck, and in one key moment in the second period with the game tied 1-1, he needed goalie James Reimer to bail him out. Canada plays Slovakia on Saturday.

Sabres' Myers Named To Canada For Worlds

News: Tyler Myers (ribs) was named to Team Canada for the upcoming World Championships, which was announced Thursday.
Analysis: Tyler Myers had an up-and-down season, but is slowly returning to his Calder-winning form. Canada will carry seven defensemen to the tournament, four of whom are right-handed. If head coach Dave Tippett elects to follow a strict left-right split, Myers will be battling Florida's Erik Gudbranson for ice time. This is the second time Myers has represented Canada at the Worlds. He last appeared on the 2010 squad during which he scored two assists in seven games. Hopefully playing on a much more competitive team will bring out the best of the underachieving defenseman.

Myers' Nine Goals Leads Sabres Defensemen

News: Tyler Myers had a nice bounce-back season offensively this year, totaling nine goals in 62 games to lead all Buffalo defensemen.
Analysis: The offense came alive this season for the 6-foot-8 giant, though he still hasn't quite returned to the Calder-winning form that saw him produce 48 points in 82 games. Maligned by Sabres faithful for his inconsistent play despite his immense potential, Tyler Myers is too often caught out of position, making bad decisions and turning over the puck, and not using his size to good effectiveness. Perhaps the expectations on Myers were far too great, but comparisons to Zdeno Chara have all but disappeared. Myers is still young at 24 years old and will have a lot of time to learn the ropes in the NHL, but with Rasmus Ristolainen, Nikita Zadorov and Jake McCabe looming, combined with the regression in his play, a change of scenery may benefit both sides. Myers is owed $20.5 million over the next five seasons, which also makes him a buyout candidate.
