Miller will be a healthy scratch during Tuesday's game against the Jets, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports. Miller is in the midst of a six-game point drought and will come out of the lineup in favor of Lawrence Pilut. Miller has just one goal and 10 assists through 49 appearances. He's played 299 career games, but he will have to wait to play No. 300.
Miller posted two assists and two hits in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Maple Leafs. Miller set up Johan Larsson and Conor Sheary for second-period tallies. The 27-year-old defenseman has just 11 points, 68 hits and 67 shots on net in 43 outings this year. Miller isn't likely to reach the offensive heights of his Vegas years (70 points in 147 contests), which makes him hard to roster in fantasy.
Miller registered an assist in Thursday's loss to the Red Wings. Miller played a season-high 22:24 of ice time as a result of Rasmus Dahlin (lower body) being out of the lineup. The apple brings Miller up to eight points in 38 appearances. With Dahlin returning for Friday's tilt with New York, expect Miller to be pushed down the lineup.
Miller has been scratched during three of Buffalo's last four contests. Miller was scratched for back-to-back games against the Canucks and Red Wings. He re-entered the lineup to play against his former Golden Knights, where he registered an assist. However, he wound up a scratch again during the latest game versus Dallas. He has just seven points in 33 appearances. His value is at an all-time low, and you can safely avoid him.
Miller will be scratched during Saturday's matinee with Los Angeles. This will make for the third time in four games that Miller is watching from the press box. The blueliner's struggles in Buffalo continue, and he currently sits at just six points through 27 contests. Don't expect him to produce like he did in Vegas, where he registered 70 points over two seasons.
