History

2009-10: Wes Myron skated in 46 games in his first season with the BCHL's Victoria Grizzlies. He scored 13 goals with 15 assists and had 13 penalty minutes. The Grizzlies finished third in the Coastal Division. In the six -game playoff series with Nanaimo he had one assist.

2010-11: Myron played in 59 of 60 games for Victoria in his second season and was third on the team with 20 goals. He finished the season with 21 assists and had 21 penalty minutes. After finishing fourth in the Coastal Conference the Grizzlies reached the playoff quarterfinals. In 12 playoff games Myron scored 3 goals with 3 assists and had 6 penalty minutes.

2011-12: Myron got off to a fast start for Victoria and in October committed to playing college hockey at Boston University in 2012-13. He represented Canada West in the 2011 World Junior A Challenge before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury in December that required surgery. Myron was the second-leading scorer for last-place Victoria despite skating in just 26 games; scoring 17 goals with 25 assists. In five games at the WJAC he had one assist. The third of four 19-year-olds the Canucks drafted in the 2012 NHL Draft, he was selected by Vancouver in the sixth round (177th overall).

2012-13: Myron skated in 21 games for Boston University as a freshman before leaving school to play pro hockey with the ECHL's Kalamazoo Wings. In 17 ECHL games he scored 2 goals with 7 assists and was -5 with 8 penalty minutes. Kalamazoo finished four points behind Greenville for the final playoff spot. Myron scored 2 goals with 1 assist and was -4 with 8 penalty minutes before leaving the Terriers in February.

 

Talent Analysis

Myron has sound offensive instincts, a nose for the net, and the ability to bury the puck when given the opportunity. He has some playmaking skills, and is effective at finding open teammates with the puck. Could stand to play a bit more physically, but is slowly growing that aspect of his game.

 

Future

Played the majority of the 2012-13 season with Boston University, but finished the year in Kalamazoo with the Wings. Now establishing his pro career, Myron will likely spend most of the season playing for the Wings.

The inaugural season for the Vancouver Canucks AHL affiliate, the Utica Comets, has indeed been a challenging one. Although the Comets have had some good wins over the last month, they still have dubious distinction of having the fewest standings points in the AHL.

Had the NHL lockout not come to pass, it certainly would have been an interesting training camp in Penticton this season for the Vancouver Canucks. They have graduated a number of players over the past five years, leaving only a couple of select, higher-tier prospects to mature and come of age. With Ryan Kesler and Alex Edler still on the shelf after surgeries, it was shaping up to be an impromptu game of musical chairs to fill the holes left by Kesler’s and Edler’s convalescence.
