The Boston Bruins on Wednesday signed defenseman Kevan Miller to a two-year contract extension reportedly worth $1.6 million.
Miller, 26, has become an important part of a Boston blue line hit by some key injuries this season, most notably Dennis Seidenberg, who is out for the season. Miller has one goal and one assist in 16 games. He was due to become a restricted free agent after the season.
I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
