34-Year-Old DefensemanD
Vancouver Canucks
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Entering the last year of his contract, Myers remains a polarizing figure on the Canucks' defense. He's yet to exceed 21 points in the first four years of his deal, which he signed coming off of back-to-back 30-plus-point campaigns. Myers' 17 points in 78 contests in 2022-23 was his lowest mark in any season in which he's played at least 40 games. He added 93 hits and 144 blocked shots and he also racked up 76 PIM. The 33-year-old is far from a defensive stud, and his offense is in clear decline, so fantasy managers would really only need to consider him for a boost in the physical categories in deep formats.

Offers helper in win
DVancouver Canucks
May 12, 2024
Myers logged an assist, seven hits and four blocked shots in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Oilers in Game 3.
ANALYSIS
The helper was Myers' first point in eight playoff games. The 34-year-old also saw a postseason-high 22:56 of ice time Sunday. He's been effective in a top-four role for the Canucks in 2023-24 -- Myers had 29 points, 110 hits, 136 blocked shots and a plus-16 rating over 77 regular-season appearances, his best scoring output in five years. He's likely to be more reliable in the physical categories than on the scoresheet moving forward.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Wants to play for Canucks
DVancouver Canucks
May 23, 2024
Myers said Thursday that he would "love" to return to Vancouver next season, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.
ANALYSIS
Myers just completed a five-year contract with the Canucks. Myers averaged $6 million per season over the length of the contract and would likely need to take a pay cut to remain with Vancouver. He had his best offensive season in 2023-24, scoring five times while adding 24 assists in 77 appearances.

Perhaps the unluckiest player in the NHL a season ago, Myers played all 82 games for Vancouver and fired 128 shots on goal. He scored just once. That equates to a 0.8 percent shooting percentage. To put that number in context, Myers' previous career-low was 4.0 percent. Of course, Myers wouldn't have been a fantasy option even if he scored the half-dozen goals we have become accustomed to seeing him deposit, but it's quite likely his numbers improve some in 2022-23 considering he is still averaging upwards of 22 minutes (21:59) per game. Regardless, you can do better on draft day.
Myers is nothing if not consistent. He's posted the same offensive totals (six goals, 15 assists, 21 points) in each of his first two seasons with the Canucks. Of course, Myers has also registered a minus-15 rating over that same span. The towering blueliner was a true power-play quarterback and an annual threat for 40-plus points in his best years in Buffalo, but he has evolved into a depth piece for Vancouver. Myers' time with the man advantage was limited a season ago (just 53 seconds per game) and that number figures to drop again this season following the addition of Oliver Ekman-Larsson to the Canucks' lineup. Myers is a low-upside fantasy option.
Myers saw a decline in offense with 21 points in 68 games last year. He also suffered a shoulder injury during the playoffs, although that isn't expected to linger into 2020-21. Myers is a polarizing player -- he puts up reasonable offensive numbers, but he's often a liability in the defensive zone despite his 6-foot-8 frame. The 30-year-old blueliner will likely slot into a second-pairing role next season, which may limit his production. He should still provide about 100 hits and blocked shots each, but his fantasy value will be limited to deeper formats only.
While much of the focus in Winnipeg was on the departure of Jacob Trouba, the 28-year-old Myers' move to Vancouver was lost in the shuffle. The Houston native locked up a five-year, $30 million deal with the Canucks and should live up to that contract as a top-pairing defenseman, though highly-touted youngster Quinn Hughes could push for a bigger role. While the top power-play likely still belongs to Alexander Edler, Myers will likely be in the mix with the No. 2 unit, which will set him up to produce a third consecutive 30-plus point campaign.
If the NHL handed out hardware for Comeback Player of the Year, Myers' highly productive 2017-18 campaign definitely would have been taken into account. The 6-foot-8, 229-pound gentle giant overcame a lower-body injury that limited him to 11 games the prior year, recording six goals, 30 assists and a career-high 17 power-play points on the way to his strongest offensive campaign since he wrapped his mitts around the Calder Trophy as a Sabre in 2010. A rearguard who's averaged only 61 appearances per season over a nine-year span, Myers carries a moderate degree of risk in fantasy, but his saving grace is that he consistently sees more than 21 minutes of ice time in a healthy state. He's a rare breed, so set your draft expectations accordingly.
Myers had a forgettable season in 2016-17, as the 27-year-old only appeared in 11 contests before suffering a lower-body injury that eventually required surgery. Prior to getting hurt, the towering defenseman was off to a strong start, having notched two goals and three helpers out of the gate. If the Texan can steer away from the injury bug this season, he should be able to surpass the 20-point threshold as he did during the 2015-16 campaign. Fantasy owners hoping Myers can put up numbers like he did in his rookie year with Buffalo -- 48 points in 80 games -- will likely be disappointed. However, the 2008 first-round pick should still offer mid-range value that trends upward as the season progresses.
Today's version of Myers pales in comparison to his rookie season, with his most recent campaign having been cut short by knee and hip injuries. Coming into this year, his status is uncertain, but the 26-year-old has underperformed for a long time. Still, the blueliner scored nine times and added 18 assists while maintaining a plus-6 rating and launching 140 shots on goal over 73 games. The aggressive mindset didn’t result in big offense, but the increased involvment does at least offer some promise. If you don't let yourself dream of Myers recapturing his 11-goal, 48-point rookie form, you might not be disappointed with his production as a depth defenseman in fantasy.
After being shipped out of Buffalo in February, Myers quickly became a key contributor from the blue line for the Jets. It quickly became evident that a change of scenery was just what the doctor ordered for the former first-round pick. After posting a meager 13 points (four goals, nine assists) in 47 games with the Sabres, Myers tallied 15 points (three goals, 12 assists) in just 24 games with the Jets. The big-bodied 6-foot-8 defender has surprisingly never been a foreboding physical presence in the NHL. He is, however, immensely gifted offensively, and that's what we like to see in fantasy. The 25-year-old will likely return to his role as a top-four defender and a member of the Jets’ second power-play unit this season, and could be in line for a breakout campaign if he can stay healthy.
The former Calder Trophy-winner wrapped up arguably his worst season as a pro with 22 points in 62 games and an atrocious minus-26 rating. Myers’ 6-foot-8 frame has always made him a valuable asset, but he has failed to live up to expectations since his rookie season. The Sabres have elected to be patient with the 24-year-old, but Myers’ name has been a staple in the rumor mill since last year. With a new crop of young defensemen coming up the pipeline, Myers’ days with the Sabres could be numbered if his play doesn’t improve. For now, he’ll continue to serve as one of Buffalo’s top defensemen, but that could change on short notice. The Sabres added a few veteran defensemen to lessen the pressure on Myers, which could unlock his potential.
During the lockout Myers played with Klagenfurter AC (Austria) but missed nearly a month with an ankle injury. Once he returned to the States, Myers stumbled his way through a disastrous NHL campaign, posting a career-low eight points in 39 games and finding himself a healthy scratch on a couple of occasions. He’s been trending downward since his 48-point, rookie-of-the-year campaign in 2009-10, and is no longer seen as a franchise cornerstone. However, there’s still potential here, and last year was likely as bad as it’s going to get for the 6-foot-8 defender. Playing a full season should allow Myers to have a rebound year, playing a more solid all-around game and posting 25-30 points.
Myers ended an injury-plagued, 23-point season with a broken foot that kept him sidelined for the final few games, but should be fully recovered in time for training camp. He hasn't been able to replicate the success of his 11-goal, 48-point rookie season in '09-10, and his power-play production may continue to take a hit due to the presence of Christian Ehrhoff. However, Myers certainly has a full toolbox and should creep closer to the 40-point barrier with a clean bill of health in '12-13. He'll turn 23 in February and those in keeper leagues should bump him up a few spots. Don't be scared off by his last two seasons, but don't forget about his potential either.
Myers' offensive numbers dipped in 2010-11, thanks largely to a brutally slow start to the season. The young defenseman turned things around right before Christmas and began to resemble the Calder Trophy winning d-man from his rookie campaign in 2009-10. With Christian Ehrhoff and Robyn Regehr now in the fold on the blue line for the Sabres, Myers should at least be expected to return to his rookie form, and it's a good bet that he will take a giant leap forward in 2011-12.
All Myers did in his rookie season was lead all rookie defensemen in points (48), goals (11), and assists (37) on his way to the Calder Trophy as the league's best rookie. With the departures of Toni Lydman and Henrik Tallinder from Buffalo's blue line, Myers will get even more time on the ice, especially with the man advantage. Add all that to his plus-13 and it makes him a top-10 fantasy defenseman.
This 6-8 first round pick from the 2008 Entry Draft had an impressive season in his first year in junior play with 42 points in 58 games. Along with his scoring ability, Myers brings a level of physicality that the Sabres could use in their defensive line. But at only 19-years-old, it is yet to be seen whether he can provide the amount of maturity and experience needed for the NHL. Myers will be tested early in the season to see if he is ready for the move or if he needs another season of development in the juniors.
Myers is a very tall defenseman with excellent reach and skating ability. He has all of the physical tools to succeed, but he is still relatively new to the position, having picked it up three years ago. He will spend 2008-09 in juniors to acquire some of the finer points of the game. Myers could challenge for an NHL roster spot next year or, more likely, in 2010-11.
