RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Miller, who came over from the Kings last year in the Milan Lucic deal, logged 42 games with the Bruins in 2015-16 while recording three goals and 16 points. He’s already proved quite productive at the AHL level, and when the 23-year-old blueliner’s confidence doesn’t waver and he’s able to avoid costly turnovers, he’s an upside play whose shot and skating ability are assets to the Bruins’ attack. Having signed a one-way deal with Boston, we’d expect Miller to earn regular duty with the big club and if he carves out power play role in the process, he could emerge as a fantasy sleeper.
Miller, who the Kings dealt to the Bruins along with goalie Martin Jones and the 13th overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft in exchange for Milan Lucic, is in line to compete with the likes of Matt Irwin, Kevan Miller, Joe Morrow, and Zach Trotman for a regular slot on the Boston blue line. The 6-foot-1, 201-pound Miller, who recorded 19 goals and 52 points in 70 games for AHL Manchester last season, certainly has the sort of skill set needed to advance to the next level in his third pro season. Miller, who turns 23 in October, stole the show at last year’s skills competition at the AHL All-Star Game, clocking in as the competition’s fastest skater, while also setting an AHL record with his 105.5-mile-per-hour shot.
