Canada’s Myers diagnosed with concussion

Team Canada will not have defenseman Philippe Myers in the lineup when it begins quarterfinal play on Monday.

Myers has been sidelined with a concussion, Canada coach Dominique Ducharme announced following Canada's 3-1 loss to the United States on Saturday. The blue-liner left the game after an interference play by American captain Luke Kunin, who was whistled for a major penalty and a game misconduct.

Myers has been one of Canada's top defensemen in the tournament, registered three points in three games prior to Saturday's affair.

The 19-year-old plays for the QMJHL's Rouyn-Noranda Huskies. In 2015, he signed with the Philadelphia Flyers as an undrafted free agent.
