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.
He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
