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.
That's today's game. That's one of the things you have to deal with when you're a championship team. Guys are going to earn more money based on their performance and what they've achieved, [and] deservedly so. [Saad] falls into that category.
