Miller was chosen as an alternate for the 2006 U.S. Olympic team, but did not make the trip to Torino as Rick DiPietro, Robert Esche and John Grahame manned the American net. He has since represented the United States in three World Championships and is looking for his first international medal.
At the 2002 World Championship, he led all goaltenders with a .949 save percentage and was second in the tournament with a 1.76 goals-against average.
Miller won the 2001 Hobey Baker Award as the top player in U.S. college hockey after recording a 31-5-4 record for Michigan State.
As a seven-year-old, he attended the 1988 Olympic Games in Calgary to watch his cousin, Kevin Miller, play for Team USA.
I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
