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 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.
