Sabres move up, pick 6-7 Myers

The Sabres moved up one spot in the first round, flipping with Los Angeles. The Sabres thus get the No. 12 pick while the Kings get No. 13 -- and the Sabres' third-round pick in 2009.

The Sabres have taken 6-foot-7 defenseman Tyler Myers of Kelowna in the Western Hockey League, the tallest of the 305 players rated by NHL Central Scouting. Myers is a Houston native who lists the Dallas Stars as his favorite team even though he moved to Calgary at age 10.

Here's Myers' official NHL Entry Draft bio and another story from last fall looking ahead to the draft.

And here's his scouting video.
