Myers' two assists helped the Sabres defeat the Sharks in a 4-1 win Tuesday.
That was Myers' first multi-point game of the season and has now got a little hot streak going with points in consecutive games. The win was a memorable one for the Sabres with captain Brian Gionta scoring his two goals of the season as well, which is hopefully a sign of better things to come for the team overall. The Sabres have been very patient with Myers, who is coveted by many teams, and since Josh Gorges' absence has really picked up his play. However, he'll need to prove himself a lot more to be considered a bona fide prospect and fantasy asset again.

Myers registered his first goal of the season in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Maple Leafs.
With just three points and a minus-9 rating through 19 games, Myers continues to disappoint after his Calder Trophy-winning rookie campaign of 2009-10 hinted at potential greatness. Though he's enjoyed almost a three-minute spike in ice time from a season ago, it hasn't translated in any additional scoring for Myers.

Myers was handed a 10-minute misconduct at 12:02 of the third period, ending his night prematurely as the Sabres lost 4-1 to Anaheim on Wednesday.
Asides from his early departure, Myers had a pretty strong game, finishing with two shots, three hits, two blocked shots and one takeaway. His absence was certainly missed as the Ducks iced the game when Corey Perry completed his hat trick late in the third period. Myers was originally called for holding Sami Vatanen, and was then handed a misconduct for going after him. Myers now has 16 PIM and 17 shots in seven games, but has yet to register a single point. He still hasn't taken that leap everyone is expecting and the Detroit Red Wings are rumored to be interested in his services, but are unwilling to part with Dylan Larkin, their first-round pick in 2014. Myers still has tons of potential but may need to move elsewhere to really blossom.

Myers will be paired with veteran shutdown defenseman Josh Gorges to begin the training camp, reports The Buffalo News.
As expected, the mercurial Myers will be paired with the dependable Gorges to begin the season as the Sabres' top pairing. Myers has struggled over the past few seasons since winning the Calder Trophy as the league's top rookie, and often looks overwhelmed by the amount of pressure placed on him. The 6-foot-8 defenseman has plenty of talent but just hasn't been able to realize it. Hopefully, Gorges will take some pressure off his shoulders and also allow Myers to take more of an offensive role. If all goes well, Myers could be in line for the best season in his rookie year. He is, without a doubt, the Sabres' best defenseman in fantasy, though the team is expected to finish near the bottom of the standings again.

There's been speculation as to whether or not the Red Wings will attempt to acquire Tyler Myers.
Detroit wasn't able to upgrade its defense on the free agent market and although Myers hasn't lived up to expectations since winning the Calder Trophy, he's still a solid defenseman with plenty of upside. Buffalo might not be inclined to trade Myers though, especially seeing as freeing up cap space is a non-factor for them at this time.

The Vancouver Canucks might pursue Tyler Myers.
They certainly have the cap space to get him after trading Jason Garrison and Ryan Kesler. Myers is coming off of a decent season, but the 24-year-old has performed well below expectations since winning the Calder Trophy in 2009-10. A change of scenery might benefit him, but the Sabres aren't likely to let him go unless they get a very good offer.

Tyler Myers suffered two broken ribs back on Mar. 25 when he slid hard into a goalpost in a game against Montreal.
He sat out the last 10 games of the season due to the ailment. The 24-year-old defender feels he needs to step up after another disappointing season for himself and for the Sabres. "Guys around my age in the room definitely have to step up and be the core of this team," Myers said. "It's a young team and we can definitely take steps this summer and become leaders."
