The Edmonton Oilers and Yale University captain Andrew Miller have agreed to terms on a one-year, entry-level contract, the team announced Wednesday.

The 24-year-old was named the Most Outstanding Player at this year's NCAA Frozen Four. He scored the overtime goal that put the Bulldogs into the championship game, which they won, 4-0, over Quinnipiac earlier this month.

Miller, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound right wing, is Yale's all-time leader with 114 assists. He scored 42 goals in 141 games over his four-year career.

The Bloomfield, Mich., native was named Ivy League Player of the Year this season. He is a two-time first-team All-ECAC selection.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
