It took Myers 39 games to reach 15 points this season, while it took him only 24 games to reach the same point total last year. Fantasy owners will be disappointed we aren’t seeing the same offensive production, but he is playing a strong all-around game in '15-16. He is still on pace for a respectable 32 points this season.

Tyler Myers had two assists in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to St. Louis.

Tyler Myers did a good job shutting down Alex Ovechkin in Winnipeg's 2-1 OT win on Saturday.

Ovechkin finished the game with five shots on goal and five hits, but had no points to his name. After the game, Jets head coach Paul Maurice praised Myers for his work in the win. "That was really good," Maurice said. "(Ovechkin) is such an explosive skater and he gets the shot off at any point in time from the blue-line in and Tyler is just such a spectacular skater and he was able to gap up early and break up plays or delay it long enough that we could get some back pressure in there."

Tyler Myers scored his first goal of the 2015-16 campaign in Thursday's 6-3 loss to Dallas.

It's been a sluggish start offensively for Myers, who has five points in 17 games. He had 15 points in 24 contests with the Jets after he was acquired from Buffalo last season.

Tyler Myers is expected to play Monday afternoon after leaving Sunday's session early.

"He’ll be fine," coach Paul Maurice said. "It happens a lot over the course of the year. Some guys bodies just don't get warmed up to a point and we want to make sure those guys don't stay or try to fight through something that's not loosening up. We have a full expectation he plays (Monday)." Myers has one assist, six shots and a plus-2 rating in two games so far this year.

Tyler Myers built some great chemistry with his Winnipeg teammates after he was acquired from Buffalo.

Even though it seemed like an easy transition based on how well he played, Myers said he's looking forward to starting the year with the Jets. "When the trade happened it was a whirlwind," he said. "I didn't know what to think. But even a week or two in I really found a home with this team." Myers collected 15 points in 24 games and he logged big minutes for the team. The 25-year-old defender looks poised to recapture the form he had when he won the Calder Trophy back in 2010.

Tyler Myers' imprint on Monday's 5-4 overtime loss to Anaheim was vast, including a timely goal across a game-leading 26:12 of work.

Myers has been everything and more for the Jets since coming over from Buffalo. Along with his goal, he registered three other shots, three blocks, and two hits. Believe it or not, Myers has been around long enough to have played in Buffalo's two previous playoffs as well. He now has three goals and eight points in 16 career postseason matches.

Tyler Myers helped to lead the Jets over the Oilers 4-1 on Monday night with a third period goal.

Myers also contributed a minor, two hits, and a block during his 22:52 of ice time with 5:31 spent on special teams. He's been exactly the boon the Jets were hoping for when they acquired him from Buffalo, plus his offense has returned, potting three goals and 11 points through 16 games with the Jets.

Tyler Myers (upper body) will indeed play on Tuesday.

That was already expected, but now we have confirmation. The Jets' lineup is still up in the air though as Dustin Byfuglien will be a game-time decision. Myers has six goals and 22 points in 59 games in 2014-15.
Tue, Mar 17, 2015 12:57:00 PM

Tyler Myers (upper body) is expected to be back on Tuesday versus San Jose.

He sat out Saturday's game with an upper-body injury and returned to practice on Monday. We'll let you know if we hear otherwise, but it appears to be safe to get him back in your lineup.
Mon, Mar 16, 2015 02:21:00 PM

Tyler Myers did not take part in Saturday morning's skate.

He is therefore doubtful to play Saturday night against the Lightning. Myers slid into the boards during Thursday's game and sustained an upper-body injury. We would consider Myers day-to-day.
Sat, Mar 14, 2015 01:03:00 PM

Jets coach Paul Maurice didn't provide much information on Tyler Myers' (upper body) condition on Friday.

Maurice was asked if there was even a chance Myers would play on Saturday and he replied, "I don't know the answer to that. I won't have an update for you until tomorrow." If you want to be optimistic about the situation, you could take that to mean that Myers' injury is minor. We recommend waiting and seeing rather than jumping to any conclusion.
