Tyler Myers is on the team. After a stellar 2008-09 season in Kelowna, where he led the Rockets to the WHL championship and was named the league’s playoff MVP, Myers, Buffalo’s top pick in the 2008 draft (12th overall), is on the Sabres’ 23-man roster that was announced on Wednesday afternoon.

“I came into camp telling myself that I’m going to compete as hard as I can for a spot on the team,” Myers said. Myers, 19, signed a three-year entry level contract in May, and under NHL rules, the first year won’t kick in until he plays his 10th NHL game this season.
