Maple Leafs showing interest in Canucks Tyler Myers

Updated: Sep 6, 2023

The Canucks are off to one of their worst starts in franchise history, and part of the blame goes toward their defensive woes. Their top 4 defense is full of holes, and is being exposed every night by the opposition.

One of those defensemen most struggling in their top 4 has been Tyler Myers, who, at 32-years-old, has been a major defensive liability for this Canucks team that is 5-9-3 in their first 17 games.

Bruce Garrioch mentioned today that the Toronto Maple Leafs have been interested in acquiring Canucks defenseman Tyler Myers.

To convince the Leaf's to take Myers off their hands, the Canucks would either have to retain some of Tyler Myers monster $6m contract, or they would have to send draft picks to Toronto.

2023-24 will be the final year of his $30m contract which was initially signed in 2019-20 by the Canucks.

This year, the defenseman has 4 assists in 14 games, but is tied for 3rd in Penalty Minutes with 35.
