• Bruins' Miller Ready For Training Camp

    News: Kevan Miller indicated that he is ahead of schedule in his recovery from February shoulder surgery, NHL.com reports.
    Analysis: Moreover, the 27-year-old blueliner, who finished the 2014-15 season with two goals and seven points, to go along with a team best plus-20 rating in 41 games, suggested that he is fully prepared for training camp later this month. Though Kevan Miller doesn't offer much upside on offense, when healthy, he plays a sound and rugged brand of positional hockey that should secure him a regular role with the Bruins this season.
  • Bruins Transfer Miller To LTIR

    News: Kevan Miller (shoulder) was transferred to long-term injured reserve Thursday, the Boston Herald reports.
    Analysis: Kevan Miller has been ruled out for the season after undergoing shoulder surgery, but by placing him on long-term injured reserve, the Bruins will be able to remove his salary from the team's cap. That extra financial flexibility should prove helpful prior to the Mar. 2 trade deadline, where the Bruins should be active.
  • Bruins' Miller Done For Season

    News: GM Peter Chiarelli announced Saturday that Kevan Miller is slated to undergo season-ending shoulder surgery, the Bruins' official site reports.
    Analysis: Kevan Miller, who suffered a dislocated right shoulder Monday against the Flames, thus concludes his 2014-15 campaign with two goals and five assists in 41 games, to go along with a team-best plus-20 rating. Though Miller doesn't offer much upside on offense, his absence moving forward represents a significant hit to the depth of the Bruins' blue line corps down the stretch. With Miller unavailable, look for Matt Bartkowski -- previously a frequent healthy scratch by the team -- to remain in the B's lineup.
  • Bruins' Miller Dealing With Shoulder Issue

    News: Coach Claude Julien has relayed concerns with regard to the status of Kevan Miller, who re-injured his right shoulder Monday, the Bruins' official site reports. "All I can tell you right now is it's not looking good, as far as his situation is," said Julien. "I don't know what the final prognosis is, but it's not looking good."
    Analysis: Per the report, Kevan Miller, who was placed on IR on Thursday, has seen various specialists this week, but based on Julien's comments, it sounds like the blueliner could miss extended time. With Miller unavailable, Matt Bartkowski -- who had been a regular healthy scratch prior to Miller's injury -- is a candidate to remain in the Bruins' lineup moving forward.

Though the rugged blueliner has just seven points in 41 games to date, he tops the Bruins with a plus-20 rating.
