Myers (undisclosed) expects to rejoin the lineup for Friday's game against the Avalanche, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports. Myers wasn't able to play Wednesday against Arizona, but he was never expected to be sidelined for long with his undisclosed issue. The 30-year-old American will skate on Vancouver's third pairing and second power-play unit Friday.
Myers (undisclosed) did not take the ice for warmups, indicating he will not play in Wednesday's game against the Coyotes, Thomas Drance of The Athletic Vancouver reports. Myers will be forced to miss time with this injury. His absence opens up a spot on the third pairing for Jordie Benn or Guillaume Breisbois to make an appearance. Myers' next chance to return will be Friday against the Avalanche.
Myers (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision against the Coyotes on Wednesday. Myers is off the pace to reach the 30-point mark for a third straight year, and any time out of the lineup will only serve to further decrease his chances of reaching that threshold. With Quinn Hughes (undisclosed) also a game-time call, the Canucks could be forced to utilize Jordie Benn and Jalen Chatfield if neither player is cleared to play.
Myers is questionable for Wednesday's matchup with Arizona after coach Travis Green classified the blueliner as day-to-day with an undisclosed injury. With Quinn Hughes (undisclosed) also in doubt, the club promoted Guillaume Brisebois and Jalen Chatfield from the minors. In his last five outings, the 29-year-old Myers garnered three helpers but remains stuck in a 12-game goal drought. If the Houston native is unable to give it a go, Chris Tanev figures to see the biggest uptick in ice time.
Myers registered an assist, three hits, three blocked shots, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 9-3 win over the Bruins. Myers did a good job of stuffing the box score Saturday. His assist came on Tanner Pearson's second-period goal, which would stand as the game-winner. Myers is at 19 points, 120 shots, 97 blocks, 85 hits and 45 PIM through 61 contests. He'll struggle to reach 30 points for the third straight year, but the 30-year-old's non-scoring numbers are as steady as ever.
