Tyler Myers of the Buffalo Sabres...

When the Buffalo Sabres made Tyler Myers the 12th pick overall at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, it was their amateur scout Kim Gellert (pictured) who gave the Kelowna Rockets' defenceman a quick wink from the floor before heading to the podium.

Gellert, a puckhandling wizard during his own professional hockey days, was one of the Rockets coaches who worked diligently with Myers throughout his stellar WHL career, one that culminated in a WHL Championship and a Memorial Cup appearance.

We spoke with Gellert in Kelowna about Myers' hard work and development so far with the Sabres.
