I feel good," said Myers. "Still obviously getting used to some different situations and different plays, but it is coming back quick."

"It was a tough recovery and a long road, but we got through it," said Myers of his groin issue. "I'm feeling good now and it's exciting for me to be back on the ice with the guys. You just have to put last year behind you and I don't feel like it's going to take too long to get back into the swing of things. Things are moving forward, looking up. I want to get back to helping the team." His son, Tristan, is also doing well after he was born five weeks prematurely and then suffered a stroke. Myers is ready to focus bouncing back for the upcoming season with the problems of last year behind him.
