March 2013- Garrett Meurs has signed a three year entry level deal with the Colorado Avalanche. Meurs is indicative of the typical signings of the Avalanche of late. He is a hard working role player that gets pucks to the net and has great leadership on and off the ice. He is good in all three zones and time in the AHL will be a great test of his true tallent, as he has been over shadowed by some superstar caliber players, Tyler Seguin being one of them. It will be interesting to see what Meurs does with this opportunity but he wont be seeing any NHL time for at least two to three years. Andrew Ward
March 2012 – The Avalanche have made some shrewd draft picks in recent drafts and Garrett Meurs in the fifth round is no exception. Meurs is learning that hard work and high compete level earns you valuable ice time with Plymouth Whalers’ head coach Mike Vellucci. The former OHL first round selection has developed good work habits in Plymouth and improved each and every season. Meurs does not excel in any particular area but he is good in almost all aspects. Meurs has been overshadowed by larger names playing in Plymouth as Tyler Seguin, Rickard Rakell and, recently, Stefan Noesen have took most of the offensive spotlight. Meurs’ hockey intelligence is strong but the lack of top offensive skills makes him a longshot at being a fantasy relevant player.
Meurs should not get any fantasy attention at this point in time but there is a slight chance he progresses as a professional so do not write him off completely.
