Myers (lower body) will return to action Tuesday against the Golden Knights, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Myers will ultimately miss just two games because of a lower-body injury, slotting back into the pairings and likely the power play upon his return. Ben Chiarot (lower body) will miss the game and give his spot in the lineup to Myers.
Coach Paul Maurice said Myers (lower body) won't play Sunday versus the Ducks, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports reports. Maurice added that if Myers continues to feel good Monday, he should be able to return for Tuesday's game versus the Golden Knights. His absence allows Sami Niku to crack the lineup while Joe Morrow is expected to see an uptick in ice time.
Myers (lower body) won't be in the lineup against the Red Wings on Friday, Sara Orlesky of TSN.ca reports. Myers' absence will open the door for Sami Niku to slot back into the lineup, while Joe Morrow and Dmitry Kulikov figure to see additional ice time. The 28-year-old Myers has recorded 13 points in his 43 games this season and is unlikely to repeat his numbers (36 points) from the 2017-18 campaign.
Myers exited Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Wild in the third period due to an undisclosed injury, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Coach Paul Maurice didn't have an update on Myers' status following Thursday's defeat, but at this point he should probably be considered a long shot for Friday's game against the Red Wings. More details on Myers' condition should surface following Friday's morning skate.
Myers recorded the game-winning goal in Sunday's 5-1 win over Dallas. Myers utilized his long reach to pull off a wraparound on Ben Bishop, which ended a seven-game pointless streak and 10-game goal drought. The Houston native is averaging 19:26 of ice time on the season, but has seen his minutes creep up to 23:43 during the last three contests with Dustin Byfuglien (ankle) out of the lineup.
