2019 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Drew Miller in 2019. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.

September 21, 2017
Chicago released Miller from his professional tryout agreement Thursday.
The Blackhawks evidently didn't see enough from Miller through the first week of camp to warrant keeping him around for their second preseason game Thursday against the Red Wings, so the 33-year-old winger will now hope to catch on with a different NHL club seeking veteran depth up front. However, at this stage, it looks like Miller may need to head overseas to continue his career.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Miller was one of the few Red Wings to play all 82 games last season, chipping in 15 points from the fourth line. Detroit loves his energy and grit, and he should continue to provide that from the bottom-six in the fall. Unfortunately, fantasy GMs have a plethora of better options available, and Miller should be relegated to the waiver wire for the entirety of the season.
The Red Wings really like Miller's hustle and grit on the fourth line, and signed him to a three-year deal in the offseason to lock him up. Miller had eight points in 44 games in the 2012-13 season and should contribute between 20-25 points in 2012-13.
Miller played in a career-high 80 games for the Wings last season and made his greatest contribution on the score sheet with a career-high 14 goals and 25 points. Entering camp, he's not guaranteed a regular spot on the fourth line, although the uncertain health of Patrick Eaves undoubtedly increases his chances of remaining a depth option in Detroit.
Miller has been a nice fourth-line contributor during his time in Detroit, producing 37 points in 133 games since being claimed off waivers from Tampa Bay during the 2009-10 season. He does many of the little things right, endearing himself to the coaching staff in the process and struggling to offer much to fantasy owners as a grinder and penalty killer.
After being claimed off waivers from Tampa Bay, Miller proved to be a versatile checking-line option with good speed and the ability to play center or the wing as needed. He potted double-digit goals for the first time in his young career, but an expanded role is unlikely after he re-signed with Detroit this summer. Look for him to continue grinding away on the third and fourth line for head coach Mike Babcock again this time around.
Miller is a decent offensive talent with a defensive conscience, which means some day he'll be a decent lower-level fantasy pick. But this year, he's likely without value -- the Bolts have Alex Tanguay and Ryan Malone ahead of him on the depth chart.
Miller spent 26 games in Anaheim last season and picked up just five points. He was more effective at the offensive end in Portland (36 points in 31 games) and despite signing a two-way deal with the Ducks before the start of training camp, he's got a decent chance at sticking as a third or fourth liner for the entire campaign if he impresses. For now, he's a player to watch rather than a player to throw a dart on, however.
The 2003 draft pick will begin the year in Portland of the AHL. In his first regular season playing in the AHL he posted 36 points (16 goals and 20 assists) in 79 games. Keep him on your radar, as he is one of the first in line for a call up with the big club.
