Flyers sign 6-foot-5 camp invitee Myers

8 Comments

Philadelphia has added to its crop of young d-man prospects by signing Philippe Myers to an entry-level deal.

Myers, 18, scored his contract after impressing the Flyers during training camp, which he attended on an amateur tryout. Prior to camp, he’d spent the last two years in junior with Rouyn-Noranda of the Quebec League, emerging as a defensive defenseman.

He wasn’t selected at this year’s draft.

Myers is tantalizing because of his size — 6-foot-5, 200 pounds — something that Philly has looked for in some of its aforementioned d-man prospects, specifically Samuel Morin (6-foot-6, 202 pounds), Robert Hagg (6-foot-2, 204 pounds) and Travis Sanheim (6-foot-3, 181 pounds).
