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.
It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
