A.B. Kevan Miller is quickly becoming one of my favorite Boston Bruins.
Being American born, un-drafted in 2011 and a former UVM Captain makes him the perfect New England underdog story to root for.
But Miller isn’t an underdog between the boards for 60 minutes each night. Miller is more a Rottweiler, if we’re sticking with the dog theme.
In 31 games he only has 4 points, but Miller’s +8 on the season tells a more complete story.
Miller plays solid stay-at-home defense while dishing out some bone-crushing hits like the one Pirri was on the receiving end of last night. His game is the perfect compliment to his 3rd D-pairing partner, Torey Krug. Krug is an offensive weapon on defense (35 points through 3/10/14). Together Miller and Krug find the perfect balance between safe and aggressive.
In a line up chalk-full of young defensemen (see: Bartkowski, Hamilton, etc.), Miller will have to continue to play well to keep his roster spot. And with a more full time promotion, hopefully also ...
