Future Watch: Philippe Myers Rookie Hockey Cards, Flyers

Future Watch: Philippe Myers Rookie Hockey Cards, FlyersPhilippe “Phil” Myers, as he’s known in Philadelphia is a great story. He was signed as an undrafted free agent in September of 2015. The team invited him to camp and overnight there was a locker that said “Phil Myers” and nobody knew who he was. I knew of a Phillippe who played in the “Q”, but this player sounded like an American.

2015 was a getting your feet wet season for Myers with the Royun-Noranda Huskies. In 60 games he had eight points.

In 2016, he played in 63 games with 17 goals and 45 points. He had 16 points in 30 playoff games. His team came out of the Q and was in the Memorial Cup but lost in overtime in the Final. Myers had the best plus/minus in the league (+52) and he was voted to the First All-Star Team as well.

In 2017, Myers had some injury problems but was more than a point-per-game player with 35 points in 34 games. He did represent Canada in the U20 World Junior Championship. He had three points in four games and walked away with a silver medal.

In 2018-19, he played in the AHL and NHL. The 6-5 defenseman wasn’t ready to be in the NHL, but he played in 21 games. In 53 games with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, he had 33 points in 53 games.

Here’s a look at his first NHL goal:

Collectors can find his 2019-20 Young Guns Rookie Card in Series 1 hockey, MVP, Artifacts and 2018-19 Upper Deck AHL hockey.

2018-19 saw Myers go up and down between the AHL and NHL again. He’s much stronger, now 209 pounds, but he has to round out his game. He had four points at both levels early in the season but at the NHL level, he had three goals. Don’t miss out on this offensive defenseman. At 22, he’s just getting started.
