General Manager Craig MacTavish announced today the Edmonton Oilers have agreed to terms with Yale Bulldogs right winger Andrew Miller on a one-year entry level contract.
Miller, 24, has played four seasons in the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference, accumulating 156 points (42G, 114A) in 141 games. His 114 assists ranks him as Yale’s all-time assists leader and he sits fifth in Bulldogs all-time points.
The Bloomfield, Michigan native is one of only five Yale players to be named a two-time, First-Team All-ECAC (2010-11, 2012-13) selection.
In 2012-13, the Yale Bulldogs captain had a career year. He led Yale with a career high 18 goals and 41 points and received the honour as Ivy League Player of the Year.
The 5’10”, 180-pound forward was a standout in the recent 2013 NCAA Frozen Four Championship in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Miller led the Men’s hockey team to their first NCAA National Championship, including scoring the game winning goal in overtime of the Semifinal against the University of Massachusetts-Lowell River Hawks. He was also named the 2013 Most Outstanding Player in the NCAA Frozen Four Tournament.
