Miller, who continues to recover from major kneecap issues, isn't thinking of retirement at this stage, Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston reports. "I'm hoping to get back to 100 percent whenever that might be and get back to playing hockey."

The rugged blueliner has already been ruled out from playing if/when the NHL resumes play this summer and is slated to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2019-20 campaign comes to a close. While Miller definitely wants to play in the NHL again if possible, the 32-year-old acknowledges that such an outcome isn't a lock. "I'd be lying to you if I said that I haven't been worried about where this is all going to end up," Miller noted of his hockey future. "It's my job and it's part of my passion. I want to be healthy. I want to play." Miller's last game action with the Bruins occurred last April.
