Tyler Myers is a massive young man at 6'8 and 225 pounds. Now, he's putting up massive stats too.
At the halfway point of the season, Myers is leading NHL rookies in ice-time and +/-. Not only that, Myers is now 5th in the rookie scoring race with 6 goals and 26 points in 44 games. Not bad for a 19 year-old defenseman who was considered a surprise addition to the Buffalo Sabres roster at the start of the season.
Despite being born in Texas, Tyler Myers plays internationally for Canada. He grew up in Alberta and Saskatchewan and holds dual citizenship. He was named to Team Canada at the 2009 World Junior Hockey Championships and helped Canada win a record-tying fifth straight gold medal. With his phenomenal play this season, Myers is an early favourite to join the defense corps of Team Canada for the 2014 Olympics.
