Miller suffered an upper-body injury playing for Team Canada during the recent IIHF World Championship, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports. Miller appear in four games for Canada and was a contributor toward his country's gold medal in the tournament, but he was forced to sit out the latter portion of the schedule. He should have plenty of time to rest up for Buffalo's training camp. The blueliner is under contract for one more season and a $3.875 million cap hit, though the Sabres seem poised to do plenty of remodeling this offseason, so we'll have to see where Miller fits in once all is said and done.
Miller managed an assist and went minus-2 in Thursday's 8-4 loss to the Penguins. Miller set up the second of Drake Caggiula's two tallies in the contest. The 28-year-old Miller has 12 points and a minus-19 rating in 47 contests this year. He had 11 points in 51 outings last season, but he usually only sees bottom-pairing work.
Miller notched an assist and three shots on goal in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Rangers. Miller set up Jeff Skinner for a goal in the first period. The 28-year-old Miller is up to 10 points, 60 shots, 86 hits, 50 blocked shots and a minus-18 rating through 45 appearances. He mostly plays in the bottom four, so the Ontario native is unlikely to attract much fantasy attention.
Miller found the back of the net in Tuesday's loss to Boston. Miller has found a bit of a scoring touch as of late, notching three points in his past five games. He has nine points in 40 appearances this year, with four of them generated on the power play. Miller's minus-19 rating will likely deter fantasy managers from slotting him into the active lineup.
Miller (undisclosed) had four hits and two blocks in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Penguins. Miller was right back in the lineup after missing Tuesday's practice, logging 17:36 of ice time on a pairing with Rasmus Dahlin. Miller, who has just one point in his last 12 games, has three goals and three assists in 28 contests on the year.
