History

2012-13: Philippe Myers skated for the Moncton Flyers midget AAA team in New Brunswick. He scored 2 goals with 12 assists and 26 penalty minutes in 35 regular season games and scored 3 goals with 5 assists and 2 penalty minutes in nine playoff games. Moncton topped the Saint John Vitos in the New Brunswick finals before finishing third in the Atlantic Regional.  Myers was selected by Rouyn-Noranda in the fourth round (58th overall) in the 2013 QMJHL Entry Draft. 

2013-14: Myers made his QMJHL debut as a 16-year-old and played 54 games — including nine playoff games — for the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies. He played for Canada Atlantic in the 2014 U17 World Hockey Challenge. He had 4 assists and was +10 with 11 penalty minutes in 46 regular season games as Rouyn-Noranda finished fifth in the West Division. The Huskies reached the second round in the playoffs. Myers had 3 assists and was +4 with 2 penalty minutes in the post-season. He had no points nor penalties in five games for Canada Atlantic at the WHC. 

2014-15: Myers played in 60 regular season games and six playoff contest for the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies in his second QMJHL season. After missing time in September due to an injury, he scored 2 goals with 6 assists and was -14 with 55 penalty minutes. The Huskies finished fourth in the West Division, falling to Val-d’Or in a six-game first-round playoff series. Myers had an even plus/minus with 2 assists and 15 penalty minutes against the Foreurs. He was ranked 157th amongst North American skaters in the Central Scouting final rankings but was not selected in the 2015 NHL Draft. 

2015-16: Myers was invited to training camp by the Flyers as a free agent and signed a three-year entry-level contract with Philadelphia in September 2015. He returned to Rouyn-Noranda for his third QMJHL season, emerging as a scoring threat from the blueline for the Huskies. Myers scored 17 goals with 28 assists (both career highs) and was +52 with 44 penalty minutes in 63 regular season games.  Rouyn-Noranda finished first in the West Division, sweeping Drummondville in a first-round series and defeating Blainville-Boisbriand in five games to reach the QMJHL semifinals against Moncton. Myers scored 1 goal with 7 assists and was +9 with 10 penalty minutes through 10 playoff games. He skated in both games for the QMJHL all-stars against Russia in November, finishing with no points and 2 penalty minutes.

Talent Analysis

Myers is still in the early stages of development but has one attribute that teams covet; size. He is tall but not yet matured in terms of size and strength. He has shown limited offensive play in his first two seasons of junior hockey but has hints of potential in that area. He is a good skater and fluid for a player his size. He has potential if he can add strength and play a more consistent physical game.

Future

Myers earned an entry-level contract after attending Philadelphia's 2015 training camp as a free agent and had a breakout offensive season in 2015-16 in his third year with the QMJHL's Rouyn-Noranda Huskies. The 19-year-old could return to the Huskies for another season and is also eligible to play for Canada in the 2017 World Junior Championship. The Flyers are suddenly deep in young defenseman prospects with Ivan Provorov and Travis Sanheim likely to being their pro careers in 2016-17. Myers is another big, mobile player who has promise as a second pairing puck mover.
