– Ron Francis
, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with forward Andrew Miller on a one-year, two-way contract. The deal will pay Miller $650,000 at the NHL level, or $200,000 at the American Hockey League (AHL) level, with a guarantee of $250,000.
“Andrew played well in his brief time with Charlotte last season,” said Francis. “Adding him to our group of forwards gives us more flexibility up and down our organization’s depth chart.”
Miller, 27, played in six games with the Edmonton Oilers in 2015-16, and has scored one goal and earned five assists (6 points) in 15 career NHL regular-season games. In the American Hockey League (AHL) last season, the Bloomfield Hills, MI, native notched 18 goals and earned 27 assists (45 points) in 55 games between Edmonton’s affiliate, the Bakersfield Condors, and Carolina’s affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers. Miller (5’10”, 181 lbs.) has scored 53 goals and earned 86 assists (139 points) in 170 career regular-season AHL games with Oklahoma City, Bakersfield and Charlotte. The Oilers signed Miller as a free agent following his four-year collegiate career at Yale University where he captured the NCAA championship with the Bulldogs in 2013.
