According to coach Alain Vigneault, Myers (ribs) is "feeling better" but he's still "not quite ready to play," Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Myers is still considered week-to-week with a fractured rib, but it sounds like he's making progress in his recovery. The 24-year-old blueliner will need to be activated off injured reserve before rejoining the lineup, so look for that announcement to precede his return to game action.
Myers (rib) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, retroactive to Jan. 19, per PuckPedia.
Myers was already deemed week-to-week with a fractured rib, so this is little more than a procedural move. He has yet to return to practice, so expect the 24-year-old to be out for an extended time.
Myers is considered week-to-week with a fractured rib.
Given Myers' uncertain timetable, he'll almost certainly be placed on injured reserve in the coming days. With Myers' out for the foreseeable future, Travis Sanheim is expected to be promoted to the Flyers' top pairing.
Myers (undisclosed) will get an MRI and there should be an update regarding his injury Wednesday.
Myers was injured during the first period of Tuesday's game versus the Sabres on a Jake McCabe hit. If Myers receives bad news, Nate Prosser is the most likely player to enter the lineup for Thursday's game against the Bruins.
Myers (undisclosed) was injured on a hit by Buffalo's Jake McCabe in the first period of Tuesday's game,Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Myers played only 6:04 before the injury occurred. It's unclear how he was hurt on the hit, but his departure leaves the Flyers with five defensemen. Assuming Myers is unable to return before the end of the game, his next chance to get back in the lineup would be Thursday in Boston. If he can't go, Nate Prosser or Mark Friedman would likely enter the lineup.
Myers signed a three-year, $7.65 million contract extension with the Flyers on Tuesday, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.
Myers was solid as a 22-year-old rookie last season, picking up four goals and 16 points while averaging 17:06 of ice time in 50 contests. He'll be a full-time player for the Flyers in 2020-21, and should see a substantial increase in ice time, as he's expected to skate alongside Ivan Provorov on his team's top pairing. The 6-foot-5 blueliner won't, however, be a useful option in most fantasy formats, as he won't get any time with the man advantage, putting a hard cap on his already limited offensive upside.
Myers scored the game-winning goal in overtime Wednesday during the Flyers' 4-3 win over the Islanders in Game 2.
The 23-year-old blueliner took a pass from Sean Couturier and leaned into a blast from the blue line, and it tipped off Anders Lee's stick on its way into the back of the net, giving Thomas Greiss little chance to stop it. Myers only has three points in 11 playoff games, but remarkably all three have been goals after he scored only four tallies in 50 games during the regular season.
Myers scored a goal on five shots and dished out two hits with a plus-3 rating in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Bruins.
It was a terrific playoff debut for the 23-year-old defenseman, who gave the Flyers a 3-1 lead just eight seconds after Boston had gotten on the board. His plus-3 rating tied for the team lead and his five shots on goal led all players. Myers had four goals and 16 points with a plus-17 rating in 50 regular-season games, his first full NHL season.
Myers (kneecap) is healthy and available should the NHL season resume. General manager Chuck Fletcher told reporters, "Phil is progressing very well and he is ready to play in NHL games."
Thanks to the shutdown, Myers will end up having missed just one game due to his kneecap injury. Should the NHL season resume, the blueliner will return to logging around 17 minutes of ice time per night.
Myers (kneecap) figures to be ready to go if the NHL season picks back up. General manager Chuck Fletcher told reporters, "Myers is doing well, he's over three weeks post-injury, he's feeling very good. I believe he would have been cleared to play prior to the end of the regular season as it was originally scheduled," Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.
Myers saw action in 50 games for the Flyers this year in which he tallied four goals, 12 helpers and 78 shots while averaging 17:06 of ice time. Once the season picks up, the 22-year-old should be capable of providing top-end fantasy value. The blueliner figures to be a full-time roster player for Philadelphia heading into the 2020-21 campaign.
Myers will be sidelined for around four weeks due to a fractured right patella.
Myers' absence will leave the Flyers down a sound defensive option on the back end, with the second-year blueliner sporting a plus-17 rating on the season. The extended absence will likely put an end to his regular season, but he could make it back into action early in the playoffs.
Myers (undisclosed) won't play Tuesday against the Bruins, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Myers was injured while blocking a shot during Saturday's 3-1 win over Buffalo and will miss at least one contest as a result. With Myers unavailable, Shayne Gostisbehere will draw into the lineup Tuesday.
Myers (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup with the Bruins, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Myers is evidently still feeling the effects of the shot he blocked during Saturday's 3-1 win over the Sabres. If he's unable to go, Shayne Gostisbehere will draw into the lineup against Boston.
Myers (undisclosed) left Monday's practice and could miss Tuesday's game versus Boston, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Myers blocked a shot during Saturday's 3-1 win over Buffalo and is dealing with aftereffects. Look for another update on the defenseman's status before the Flyers' next game.
Myers has one goal and two points with a plus-3 rating and 23 shots on net in the last 11 games.
The production is a little sparse for Myers lately, but he's getting plenty of shots on goal. That may simply be because he seems to be experiencing a bit of a relapse in shooting percentage. Through his first 36 games, he was scoring at an unsustainable 5.9 percent. Myers has actually scored only one goal since Nov. 13. He has four goals and 16 points with a plus-16 rating and 28 PIM and 74 shots in 47 games this season.
Myers registered a minus-2 rating with two shots, one hit and one block in a 5-3 loss to the Islanders on Tuesday.
The 23-year-old has put together a strong rookie season, but he's been very cold over the last month. In the past 11 games, Myers has zero points and a minus-1 rating. Prior to this slump, he posted three goals, 14 points and a plus-17 rating. The good news is he's averaging more than three shots on goal the past four games. Other than that, he hasn't been producing this month.
Myers posted three shots on net with a minus-1 rating in a 4-1 loss to the Canadiens on Thursday.
It hasn't resulted in any goals, but the 22-year-old has 12 shots on net in the last four games. Myers possesses a rather high 7.9 shooting percentage, so it's not a surprise that he is going through a goal drought (24 games), but he could break it soon with the amount of rubber he's getting the the net. Myers has three goals and 14 points with a plus-13 rating and 18 PIM in 30 games this season.
Myers recorded an assist, four PIM and two hits in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Capitals.
Myers has assists in consecutive games after helping out on Robert Hagg's tally in the first period. The Canadian blueliner is up to 13 points, 40 hits and 18 PIM in 26 contests this season. He's had solid production on offense, but the 22-year-old can run streaky at times -- he hasn't scored since Nov. 10.
Myers records two shots on goal and two blocks in a 6-2 loss to the Coyotes on Saturday.
The 22-year-old hasn't scored since he tallied goals in three consecutive games during early November, but the good news is he has a couple assists in recent games, and he finally got some shots on goal Saturday. Myers only has 26 shots on net in 24 games, so he's fortunate to have three goals. His high shooting percentage (11.5 percent) is probably still due for more of a correction, meaning owners shouldn't expect another goal from Myers soon unless he gets more shots on net. He has three goals and 11 points with a plus-17 rating in 24 games this season.
Myers (illness) will dress Saturday against the Senators.
Heading into Saturday night's affair, Myers was a game-time decision due to an illness, but he's going to gut it out. The 22-year-old defenseman figures to play on the Flyers' third defensive pairing. In 19 games this season, Myers has found the scoresheet 10 times and owns a plus-15 rating.
