Playing Career[edit | edit source]
Meyer grew up in the small village of Fox Valley, Saskatchewan. He played his early years of minor hockey in the neighbouring community of Richmound, Saskatchewan. He was a noticeable talent throughout his minor hockey career in Richmound, where he played alongside future Medicine Hat Tigers teammate Goaltender Matt Keetley.
Later, Meyer attended school in Wilcox, Saskatchewan, where he played for the Notre Dame Hounds at the Bantam AAA and Midget AAA levels. While attending school at Athol Murray College of Notre Dame, Meyer was roommates with current NHL Defenceman Braydon Coburn. The pair were drafted 1st and 2nd overall in the 2000 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft, with Braydon Coburn going first to the Portland Winter Hawks and Meyer second to the Medicine Hat Tigers.
Meyer stared for the Tigers during his WHL career and was a key contributor on their 2003-04 WHL championship team that eventually went on to lose in the Memorial Cup final to the host Kelowna Rockets squad.
Meyer was drafted 55th overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft by the Florida Panthers, and played his first NHL game in 2007. Meyer was traded to the Phoenix Coyotes for Steven Reinprecht on June 19, 2009.
