Canucks' Tyler Myers: Good to go against Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Canucks' Tyler Myers: Unavailable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Canucks' Tyler Myers: Game-time call versus Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Canucks' Tyler Myers: In doubt Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Canucks' Tyler Myers: On scoresheet with assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Canucks' Tyler Myers: Tickles twine Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers netted a goal on two shots, dished two hits and blocked a pair of shots in Sunday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Hurricanes.

Myers has been a sneaky source of offense with six tallies, 17 points and 109 shots through 53 games. He's topped 30 points in each of the last two seasons and could get to the mark again if he picks up the pace slightly. The 30-year-old blueliner has added 85 blocks, 69 hits and 26 PIM this year.

Canucks' Tyler Myers: Deposits equalizer Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers scored a goal on three shots and blocked four shots in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Sharks.

Myers' goal at 2:36 of the third period was the first of a four-score Canucks rally. He snapped a six-game point drought with the lamp-lighter. The 29-year-old has picked up 16 points, 105 shots on goal, 80 blocks and 65 hits through 51 contests.

Canucks' Tyler Myers: Pots game-winning goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers scored a goal, dished three hits and blocked two shots in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Rangers.

Myers broke a 1-1 deadlock at 18:31 of the third period. The 29-year-old defenseman is up to four goals and 14 points in 42 games this season. He's added 83 shots on goal, 53 hits and 60 blocked shots. The Texas-born blueliner has been better lately with eight points in his last nine games, but his hot run isn't likely to last much longer.

Canucks' Tyler Myers: Erupts for three points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers scored two goals and added a power-play assist in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Flames.

Myers' first goal also came with a man advantage. All three of the defenseman's points came in the first period. The 29-year-old is up to three goals and 13 points in 40 appearances this season. Despite the outburst, he's still on pace to miss the 30-point mark for the first time since 2016-17, when injuries limited him to five points in 11 contests.

Canucks' Tyler Myers: Reaches milestone with two helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers recorded a pair of assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Penguins.

Myers set up Jake Virtanen on the power play in the first period and Elias Pettersson at even strength in the second. The defenseman's second helper gave him 200 in his career. Myers is at 10 points, 74 shots on goal, 50 blocked shots and 46 hits through 36 contests this year.

Canucks' Tyler Myers: Supplies power-play assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers recorded a power-play helper, three shots on goal and two hits in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Canadiens.

Myers set up Adam Gaudette for the tally at 18:21 of the first period. Myers has been a fairly rare sight on the scoresheet in 2019-20, with eight points in 35 games. The blueliner has added 68 shots, 47 blocked shots, 45 hits and 24 PIM, but the lack of offense will keep him available in most fantasy formats.

Canucks' Tyler Myers: Finds back of net in OT win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers scored a short-handed goal and added an even-strength assist in Saturday's 6-5 overtime win over the Sabres.

The 29-year-old blueliner finally lit the lamp in his 30th game as a Canuck. The productive afternoon ended a 15-game pointless drought for Myers, and he has only six points on the season despite a spot on the top pairing alongside Quinn Hughes and occasional shifts on the second power-play unit. Until he shows more consistency, Myers can be safely ignored in almost all fantasy formats.

Canucks' Tyler Myers: Lacking offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers has just four points through 20 contests.

Myers is still searching for his first goal as a Canuck. The blueliner has four assists on the season but none in his last six games. Vancouver has lost five of those six matchups, and could use a little more offense from the big-bodied defenseman. He's on pace for 16 points, which would be a career-low in a full season for the 29-year-old.

October 16, 2019 09:08 PM
Canucks' Tyler Myers: Collects assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers picked up his second point as a member of the Canucks during Tuesday's win over Detroit.

Myers has been an important part to the Canucks defense so far, logging on average 22:27 of ice time per game. He has two assists through five contests, six hits, five blocks, and 12 shots on goal. He has the capability of posting a 30 point campaign while adding some category coverage.

Canucks' Tyler Myers: Commits to Canucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers signed a five-year, $30 million contract with the Canucks on Monday.

Some might say this is a bit of an overpay, but Myers benefited from being one of the top options in a free agent market lacking in quality defensemen. The towering 29-year-old has been rock solid for Winnipeg over the past two seasons, picking up 15 goals and 67 points while posting a plus-20 rating in 162 appearances, and should be able to step into a top-four role and have similar success with the Canucks in 2019-20. Myers will never be an elite fantasy asset, but he's going to play a major role for Vancouver this campaign, and could approach the 40-point mark if he's deployed on the Canucks' second power-play unit, making him a desirable depth option in most formats.

Jets' Tyler Myers: On verge of signing with Vancouver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers is closing in on a five-year, $30 million deal with the Canucks, Andy Strickland of 590 The Fan reports.

Vancouver is courting a 10-year veteran, with Myers having amassed 74 goals and 191 assists through 635 career contests between the Sabres and Jets. His massive 6-foot-8, 229-pound frame provides a thick layer of defense, and it's relatively easy for him to create space in the attacking zone to the benefit of fantasy owners abound. However, the Canucks only averaged 2.67 goals per game this past season -- which tied New Jersey for 25th overall -- so there should be some immediate concerns about Myers dipping in value away from the Jets, a team that ranked seventh in scoring.

Jets' Tyler Myers: Collects 30th point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers posted an assist, three hits, two blocked shots and two shots in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Blackhawks.

The helper gives Myers 30 points in 77 games, as well as a career-high 151 shots. He's gathered a plus-15 rating. He's not likely to match the 36 points he had last season, but he's been a useful blueliner to fantasy owners in deep formats.

March 19, 2019 01:48 AM
Jets' Tyler Myers: Banks game-winning goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers scored his ninth goal of the season, which was the decisive tally in Monday's 3-2 win over the Kings.

Myers has two goals and three assists over nine games in March, adding 16 blocked shots and 17 shots on goal in that span. For the season, the 29-year-old blueliner has accumulated 27 points, which is down from the 36 he had last year.

March 8, 2019 11:24 PM
Jets' Tyler Myers: Collects early helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers registered an assist on the first goal of an 8-1 win over the Hurricanes on Friday.

Myers' assist came on the opening goal by Kevin Hayes. Myers also recorded a plus-3 rating in the contest. The 6-foot-8 defender has 24 points (eight goals, 16 assists) in 65 games this season, as well as 127 shots on goal. He's got a chance to hit 30 points for the second consecutive season, but he can't be expected to do much more than that.

Jets' Tyler Myers: Secures victory over Preds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers scored his eighth goal of the season in a 5-3 win over the Predators on Friday.

Myers pulled off the somewhat rare game-winning, empty-net goal as the teams exchanged three goals over the last two minutes of the contest. Myers added four blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Friday's victory. In his last five games, he notched a goal and an assist, while racking up nine blocks and seven hits. With 23 points in 62 games this year, the blueliner makes for a solid fantasy option in deeper formats.
