News: Myers (ribs) was named to Team Canada for the upcoming World Championships, which was announced Thursday. Impact: Myers had an up-and-down season, but is slowly returning to his Calder-winning form. Canada will carry seven defensemen to the tournament, four of whom are right-handed. If head coach Dave Tippett elects to follow a strict left-right split, Myers will be battling Florida's Erik Gudbranson for ice time. This is the second time Myers has represented Canada at the Worlds. He last appeared on the 2010 squad, totaling two assists in seven games. Hopefully, playing on a much more competitive team will bring out the best in the underachieving defenseman.(RotoWire, )

News: Myers (ribs) had a nice bounce-back season offensively this year, totaling nine goals in 62 games to lead all Buffalo defensemen. Impact: The offense came alive this season for the 6-foot-8 giant, though he still hasn't quite returned to the Calder-winning form that saw him produce 48 points in 82 games. Maligned by Sabres faithful for his inconsistent play despite his immense potential, Myers is too often caught out of position, making bad decisions and turning over the puck, and not using his size to good effectiveness. Perhaps the expectations on Myers were far too great, but comparisons to Zdeno Chara have all but disappeared. Myers is still young at 24 years old and will have a lot of time to learn the ropes in the NHL, but with Rasmus Ristolainen, Nikita Zadorov and Jake McCabe looming, combined with the regression in his play, a change of scenery may benefit both sides. Myers is owed $20.5 million over the next five seasons, which also makes him a buyout candidate.(RotoWire, )

News: Myers suffered two broken ribs March 25 against the Canadiens, The Buffalo News reports. Impact: Myers missed the last 10 games of the season with the broken ribs, but will presumably be fine for the start of next season. He finished the 2013-14 campaign with nine goals and 13 assists in 62 games.(RotoWire, )

News: The Sabres aren't ruling out a return for Myers (midsection) this season. Impact: After Sunday, the Sabres will have just four games remaining on the schedule, meaning Myers will really have to ramp up his activity level in the next few days if he hopes to play again this season. The uncertainty of his timetable probably makes him waiver-wire fodder over the season's final week, when having reliably healthy players is paramount.(RotoWire, )
