Vancouver Canucks defenceman Tyler Myers will miss Game 3 against the St. Louis Blues with a still-undisclosed injury he sustained in Friday’s contest.

Myers went down after a collision with Brayden Schenn early in the third period of Game 2. He was slow to get up but was able to skate off the ice under his own power. However, he immediately went to the Canucks’ locker room and stayed there for the remainder of the third and overtime.

To this point, the specifics of what Myers is suffering from are unknown. Canucks coach Travis Green simply said that the 30-year-old was “unfit to play” in his Friday post-game interview.

The Canucks head into Game 3 with a 2–0 series lead over the defending Stanley Cup champions.

Myers had 21 points and a minus-seven rating in 68 games this season.
