Myers was a healthy scratch for the Sabres last two games. He only has 1 goal and is a -9 in the 11 games he appeared in so far this season. The Sabres are hoping that using him as a healthy scratch will serve as a wake-up call to Myers and get his game back on track.
#Sabres Tyler Myers just told me he's scratched tonight. #Buffalo
Myers was scratched yesterday as well. He has been terrible for the Sabres this season, he has 1 G and a team worst -9 in 11 games this season. The 23 year-old has all the tools to be a great NHL defenceman but just hasn't been able to find his game early this season.
Myers set to return to the line-up tonight #Sabres
Myers gets back into the lineup for the first time since November 19th. He has two goals and six points in 19 games in what was considered a down year. Might be a good time to buy low on the former Calder winner.
“I take another CAT scan tomorrow morning,” Myers said. “We’ll know a little bit more there, if I can start leaning on my stick a lot more, start engaging in physical play. I think today was its best day.”
Myers was deemed "a ways away" by coach Lindy Ruff at the end of December. Sounds like he continues to take steps in the right direction but probably misses another week or two.
