Canucks’ Tyler Myers unable to finish Game 2 after hit from Blues’ Schenn

Tyler Myers stays down and then leaves the ice after a hard hit in the corner from Brayden Schenn, the towering defenceman appears to be favouring his left shoulder as he skates off.

Vancouver Canucks defenceman Tyler Myers left Friday’s Game 2 against the St. Louis Blues early and didn’t return.

Myers suffered an apparent injury after a collision with Brayden Schenn early in the third period. 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.

No penalty was called on the play.

In his post-game press conference, Canucks coach Travis Green didn’t have an update on Myers’ condition, only saying he was “unfit to play.”

The Canucks won the game 4-3 in overtime to take a 2-0 series lead over the defending Stanley Cup champions. Game 3 in the series is scheduled for Sunday at 10:30 p.m. ET / 7:30 p.m. PT.

Myers is in the first year of a five-year, $30-million contract that he signed as a free agent last summer. He had 21 points and a minus-seven rating in 68 games this season.
