Former Minnesota Duluth defenseman Josh Meyers of Alexandria, Minn., was treated and released after being injured Friday night in an American Hockey League game in Houston, Texas.

Meyers, 25, in his second season with the Abbotsford (British Columbia) Heat, was hurt after colliding with teammate Matt Pelech at the end of the first period on a line change at the Times Union Center. They were unable to avoid each other and Meyers suffered back and neck pain, and was taken to Memorial-Herrman Hospital in Houston as a precautionary measure.

Meyers later rejoined the Abbotsford team, but was held out of Saturday's game against the Texas Stars in Austin. In Friday's game, the Houston Aeros beat Abbotsford 4-3 in a shootout.

Meyers has two goals and seven assists for nine points in 35 games this season. He played four years with UMD through 2009.
