History

2003-04: Meyer participated in the 2004 Memorial Cup Tournament with his WHL team, the Medicine Hat Tigers. After a strong regular season offensively from the left winger, who scored 34 goals and added 41 assists for a total of 75 points, Meyer contributed throughout the WHL playoffs with seven goals and ten assists in 19 games. In the Tigers first game of the tournament Meyer scored the teams lone goal in a 3-1 loss against QMJHL champions, Gatineau Olympiques. Meyer was scoreless through the rest of the round-robin play, where his Tigers went 1-1 to advance to the semi-finals of the tournament. However, the Tigers got down quickly, and lost the game 6-5. Meyer scored the fifth goal of the game with 11 seconds left on the clock, finishing the tournament with two goals and no assists.

2004-05: Finished 8th overall in the WHL with a total 77 points (34 goals, 43 assists) and 104 penalty minutes in 69 games.

2005-06: Earned rookie of the year honors with the Rochester Americans (AHL) and had a total 28 points (12 goals, 16 assists) and 139 penalty minutes in 68 games.

2006-07:  Played in 63 games with the Rochester Americans with a total 22 points (13 goals, 9 assists) and 90 penalty minutes.

2007-08: Meyer showed an improved ability to handle the intensity of the AHL this season. His point totals are up significantly this year: 40 points in 70 games compared to 22 points in 63 last year. His progress earned a quick look as an injury call-up to the Panthers, with whom he dressed in four games and skated just over two minutes per game on average. He scored no points.

2008-09: Traded to the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for Steve Reinprecht.

Talent Analysis
Meyer has good athletic ability and has an aggressive style of play. He is strong on the puck, and uses his size and strength to create space. He demonstrated considerable offensive ability and strong finishing skills at the junior level. His skating ability has been an issue, as he lacks acceleration and explosive speed.
