Myers was reassigned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Friday. The Phantoms have five games left and are trying to chase down a spot in the Calder Cup playoffs, so the addition of Myers should bolster their blue line. The 21-year-old is bogged down in a 13-game pointless streak, during which he averaged just 14:48 of ice time and dished out 21 hits. The defenseman's offensive numbers have been significantly better in the minors, where he's notched nine goals and 20 helpers in 48 games this season.
Myers has gone nine games without registering a point and owns a minus-1 rating during that stretch. The 22-year-old began his NHL career with a goal and an assist in the first eight games, but he hasn't posted another point since then. He does have nine shots on net in the past four, but that's about all Myers has to show for himself in the last three weeks. He also has 14 hits in the last nine games and 35 overall.
Myers (illness) is expected to play Thursday against host Chicago, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Myers took to the ice Wednesday morning as the strong hint that he'll be good to go against the Blackhawks. The undrafted defenseman has a goal and an assist over 13 games in his rookie campaign.
Myers (illness) will not play in Tuesday's contest against Montreal, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The rookie defenseman has a goal and two points in 13 games to start his NHL career. He'll be considered day-to-day but should be good to go Thursday in Chicago. Andrew MacDonald should take his place for Tuesday's contest.
Myers (illness) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's contest against the Canadiens, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The Flyers have veteran Andrew MacDonald and Samuel Morin at the ready in case Myers' illness forces him out for the first time in 13 games.
