By The Numbers will highlight the Red Wings on-ice accomplishments in the 2013-14 season. Each week during the off-season, By The Numbers will profile a different player on the team, focusing on their statistical highs. This week we focus on forward Drew Miller.

82

For the first time in his seven-season NHL career he played in every regular-season game in 2013-14. Defenseman Kyle Quincey was the only other player on the Red Wings’ roster to appear in every game last season.

The most penalty minutes produced in a single season in his career. He had eight penalties, including a double-minor for high-sticking, and a fighting major against Colorado’s Cory Sarich (Oct. 17). It was Miller’s third career NHL fight.

3:00


The average shorthanded ice time logged last season, which was second only to defenseman Niklas Kronwall (3:03). Miller’s 246-plus shorthanded minutes were a team high last season.

122


Posted a career-high in hits, finishing second on the team only to forward Justin Abdelkader (172). Miller’s previous high in hits was 97 during the 2009-10 season when he finished No. 8 on the Wings.

63


For the fourth straight season led all Red Wings’ forward in the number of blocked shots. His career high was 66 in 80 games during 2011-12. He had season-high three blocks in three different games – at Phoenix (Oct. 19), at Dallas (Jan. 4), and at Montreal (Apr. 5).

The career number of game-winning goals he has after scoring a third-period goal – his second of the game and only GWG of the season – in Detroit’s 4-2 win at Ottawa (Dec. 1). More than 26 percent of his goals scored since joining the Red Wings in 2009-10 have been game-winners. Only defensemen Brad Stuart (31.2%) and Brett Lebda (27.8%) have produced a higher percentage of GWG in Red Wings’ history.
