The Winnipeg Jets will be without one of their top defensemen for even more time.
Tyler Myers will be out of the lineup for another 6-8 weeks after having surgery to repair his lower-body injury.
He has missed the past 39 games, due to the injury he sustained against the Colorado Avalanche on November 11th. Myers has two goals and five points in 11 contests this season, and 59 goals and 198 points in 473 career NHL games. The Jets acquired Myers, forward Drew Stafford, two prospects and a first-round pick in a trade with the Buffalo Sabres for forward Evander Kane and defenseman Zach Bogosian on Feb. 11, 2015.
It’s a big blow for a Jets team that is having trouble keeping pucks out of their own net. As the trade deadline gets closer and closer, it will be for sure an interesting topic. Winnipeg will be a team to look out for, as they are in a position to make some real game-changing trades.
