3/11 Recap: Myers stays steady

Tyler Myers assisted on goals by Tyson Barrie ('09) and Mikael Backlund (CAL) as Kelowna defeated Portland, 6-2. The stud d-man finished +4 for the Rockets, earning the game's #2 star in the process. As speculated, poor play coupled with the return of Eric Moe to the Timra lineup made Dennis Persson the odd man out in the Eagles 2-1 playoff win over HV71. Timra now leads the SEL first round series 3-1. In the QMJHL, Jordon Southorn was +2 with a team-leading five hits as PEI defeated Halifax, 7-5. J.S. Allard assisted on Mikhail Stefanovich's game winning goal as Quebec beat Baie-Comeau, 5-2. On Tuesday, Tyler Ennis (+1) had an assist as Medicine Hat defeated Red Deer, 3-1. T.J. Brennan finished +1 with a team-best five hits as Montreal lost at Rimouski, 6-3.

I noticed Myers is now +30 and leading his team in that regard. 20th in WHL defensive scoring and 25 in WHL plus/minus. Quite impressive from a kid who was a double diget minus the last couple seasons.

It's been a big year of development. Many automatically assume that, because Chara took a while, Myers will need lots of time to mold. I don't think that's the case. Myers skates so well that it's mostly about strength at this point.
