Fantasy Summary

A great story with a solid work ethic. Despite being an overage draftee Meyer has some time to hone the finer points of his game in the NCAA.


Observations

Click to Expand

November 2019 – The 22-year-old has begun his second season with Ohio state University (NCAA) and is off to a respectable start. Playing in his home state, the sophomore has put up four goals and four assists through ten games, firing 28 shots on net. After a few rough years suffering a well-documented health issue, the CBJ development staff are pleased to have him back at it and “enjoying hockey again”. The sixth-round-pick is slightly undersized, but has a history of putting up offense. However, without a contract, he carries no fantasy value. Dave Hall   

 

June 2019 – Back to full health, Meyer returned to his old scoring ways this past season. The 21-year-old posted 22 points in 36 games for Ohio State University. His is without a contract so his future with the Blue Jackets organization is uncertain. There is no fantasy value to be had here. Frank Pellegrini

December 2018 – Meyer is playing in his first season with Ohio State University of the NCAA. Before his transfer, he spent two campaigns playing for Miami University. In a report in The Athletic, Meyer cited “issues” with Miami head coach Rico Blasi as a reason for the transfer. He was also displeased with the tactics used by team doctors after failing to diagnose him with a 25-inch tapeworm. Now back at full health, Meyer continues his quest for full-time duty with the Blue Jackets. Currently unsigned, he will need to sign a contract if he is to realize that goal. Frank

December 2017 – A Columbus-area native, Meyer’s a lifelong Blue Jackets’ fan and was a youth hockey teammate of fellow CBJ prospect Kole Sherwood. Selected this summer in his third year of eligibility after a productive freshman year at Miami of Ohio (10 G, 16 A in 32 games), Meyer’s a cerebral and hard working goal scorer who excels down low in spite of his smallish frame. He demonstrated this in previous USHL play with 32 of his 52 points as a member of the Tri-City Storm tallied on goals. A crafty puck handler skilled at shooting and passing in tight spaces, Meyer is quick on skates and carves sharp turns to help evade opponents, but might increase his zone-to-zone speed as he develops.
