Canucks Rumors: Defenseman Could Be On The Move "Later This Month"

There is ongoing speculation that Vancouver Canucks defenseman Tyler Myers may be traded in the near future.

Tyler Myers, 33 years old, has become the subject of trade talks due to his unique contract situation, which has piqued the interest of potential suitors.

While Myers carries a $6 million salary-cap hit for the current season, a significant portion of that, $5 million, was already paid out as a signing bonus.

As a result, he is owed just $1 million in actual salary for the remainder of the season.

The Vancouver Canucks' need for cap space makes Myers an attractive option for teams looking to meet the salary cap minimum or those who believe he can still contribute effectively on the ice.

However, it's important to note that Myers holds a 10-team no-trade clause, adding complexity to potential trade negotiations.

While there were prior rumors in July about a trade to the San Jose Sharks contingent on the payment of his signing bonus, no such trade has materialized to date. Photo Credit: Bob Frid-USA TODAY Sports
