      Jets' Tyler Myers: Delivers 50th career goal Wednesday

      Myers found the back of the net in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Capitals. It was the 50th goal of his NHL career. Myers is very skilled offensively, though he hasn't had a campaign that topped the 48 points he tallied as a rookie with the Sabres in 2009-10. Injuries are partly to blame as the blueliner has only averaged about 51 games played over the past seven seasons. He's a monster on the ice at 6-foot-8, 229 pounds, and it would behove the rearguard to consistently use that size to his advantage and be more assertive with the puck. After all, he's only averaging around a shot and a half per game over his career.

      Myers has dished out four assists in 15 games this season. During Winnipeg's final 24 games last season, the newly acquired defenseman from Buffalo, Myers, tallied three goals and 12 assists. 15 games into this 2015-16 season, Myers has yet to find the back of the net and hasn't registered a point in four straight contests. However, Myers has seen his playing time increase from 17 minutes in the first game against Boston to 22 minutes in his last game against Philadelphia.

      Jets' Tyler Myers: Taking on greater responsibility

      Myers registered an assist and was a minus-1 in a 4-1 win over the Rangers on Tuesday. While being a "minus" player in a 4-1 victory may suggest a different story, Myers performance was encouraging for his fantasy stock. On top of picking up an assist, Myers logged over 20 minutes of ice time for the second consecutive game, along with a season-high 3:02 of power play ice time. Expect this trend to continue, as the former Calder Trophy winner was brought in by the Jets at the trade deadline last season to play important minutes.

As a result, he's gone from waiver-wire flotsam to a must-own asset across most fantasy formats.
