Sabres' Colin Miller: Dealt to Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Golden Knights will trade Miller to the Sabres in exchange for a 2021 second-round pick and a 2022 fifth-round pick, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

Miller will bring some additional firepower to a Sabres blue line that has been lacking depth in that area. Despite missing 17 games last season, Miller finished with 29 points and is just one season removed from a 41-point campaign. He should slot into a top-four role for the Sabres next season and will likely work on one of the power-play units as well.

Golden Knights' Colin Miller: Posts two power-play assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller provided a pair of power-play assists and three blocked shots in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Sharks in Game 5.

Miller now has three points in five games in the series, adding 13 hits, seven blocked shots and eight shots on goal. He had 29 points in 65 contests from the blue line in the regular season. Miller could make for a good DFS play in Sunday's Game 6 in Vegas.

Golden Knights' Colin Miller: Picks up shorthanded score
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller scored a shorthanded goal in a 5-3 victory against the Sharks on Friday.

Right as the Golden Knights killed the first part of a 5-on-3 situation, Erik Karlsson turned the puck over on a terrible pass. Coming out of the penalty box, Miller had a clear breakaway and didn't miss. The Golden Knights tallied two shorthanded goals and a power-play score in the big win.

Golden Knights' Colin Miller: Fined for embellishment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller was handed a $2,000 fine by the league for embellishment, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Miller is bogged down in a 13-game goal drought, but he's managed to notch five helpers over that stretch, including two with the man advantage. While the blueliner is logging just 19:39 of ice time per game this season, he remains a critical piece of the power play, averaging 2:24 and tallying 13 of his 29 points with the extra man.

Golden Knights' Colin Miller: Garners helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller picked up an assist, two shots and a blocked shot in a 3-2 loss to the Wild on Friday.

Miller is at three goals and 26 helpers in 61 games this season, a slightly slower pace than the 41 points he had in 82 contests in the Golden Knights' inaugural campaign. Miller remains a power-play threat with 13 of his points coming with a man advantage, and his 115 hits provide a little extra value in formats that reward physicality.

Golden Knights' Colin Miller: Spends time in sin bin
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller registered a power-play assist and served four PIM in Monday's 7-3 win over the Sharks.

Miller has 10 PIM in his last four contests, supplying a little value outside of scoring. For the season, he has three goals and 24 helpers in 58 games, with 12 of his 27 points coming on the man advantage. He's currently on the third pairing, so his opportunities to generate offense are somewhat limited.

Golden Knights' Colin Miller: Supplies pair of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller had two assists, three shots, and a plus-4 rating in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Canucks.

The defender has seen offense come in spurts at times this season. He assisted the last two tallies of a five-goal first period for Vegas. Miller has 26 points (three goals, 23 assists) in 54 appearances, but the consistency of his production is likely to remain limited as long as he's on the third defense pairing.

Golden Knights' Colin Miller: Pots third goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller scored in a 6-5 shootout win over the Panthers on Thursday.

Miller has seen his role reduced with Nick Holden healthy again, but Miller rewarded coach Gerard Gallant's faith with the tally in this contest. He added seven shots on goal and three hits to his stat line. For the season, he has 24 points in 50 games, but it will be hard to roster him if he can't maintain his spot in the lineup.

Golden Knights' Colin Miller: Cools off in February
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller has only registered two assists in February.

The defenseman had a good start to the year with 17 points in his first 36 games, but in six games this month, he has been limited to two assists. He has ramped up the physicality, delivering 16 hits over that six-game span.

Golden Knights' Colin Miller: Unselfish play continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller assisted on both of Vegas' goals in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Wild.

Miller has recorded a pair of assists in back-to-back games since returning from an undisclosed injury versus the Penguins on Saturday. And for good measure, his first apple in the latest contest was of the power-play variety. The defenseman has made tremendous strides in the attacking zone compared to his first two years in Boston, improving from 0.28 points per game with the B's to a half-point-per-game pace with the Golden Knights.

Golden Knights' Colin Miller: Racks up pair of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller notched two assists in his return from injury against Pittsburgh on Saturday.

Miller picked up right where he left off following a 13-game stint on the sidelines. Prior to getting hurt, the blueliner recorded five helpers in his previous five outings. While he may be bogged down in a 12-game goal drought, the 25-year-old's ability to put pucks on his teammates' sticks gives him top-end fantasy value.

Golden Knights' Colin Miller: Activated from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (undisclosed) was activated from injured reserve for Saturday's game against the Penguins, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Barring a setback in warmups, Miller should be all set for this home contest against a Penguins team that will be eager to direct some shots at old pal Marc-Andre Fleury. It remains to be seen what kind of shape Miller is in after missing the last 13 games with his injury, but we're not aware of any restrictions that would otherwise prevent him from reprising his usual role on the power play and penalty kill.

Golden Knights' Colin Miller: Status coming down to warmups
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (undisclosed) will be a game-time call for Saturday's clash with the Penguins, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Look for Miller to do what he can to try and make an appearance in support of goalie legend Marc-Andre Fleury, as he gets set to take on his former club. The defenseman remains on injured reserve, but Miller obviously wouldn't be a game-time decision if he was far from a return.

Golden Knights' Colin Miller: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Winnipeg, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Miller was able to participate in practice for the first time since suffering his injury Saturday, so although he won't be available against the Jets, he's definitely trending in the right direction. Another update on the 26-year-old blueliner's status should surface prior to Saturday's matchup with Pittsburgh.

Golden Knights' Colin Miller: Takes big step in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (undisclosed) skated with his teammates Saturday, and while he won't be available for the evening's road game against the Blackhawks, the defenseman is moving in the right direction, per Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant.

Miller is about to miss his 12th consecutive game, with Vegas managing to win eight of those contests without him. Still, as the owner of 17 points (two goals, 15 assists) through 36 games, it's hard to deny the impact that Miller makes when he's healthy. Look for the puck-pushing rearguard to be reevaluated ahead of Tuesday's road game against the Jets.

Golden Knights' Colin Miller: No-go on New Year's Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (undisclosed) missed morning skate and won't be fit to play against the Kings on Tuesday, Danny Webster of NHL.com reports.

Miller is a key puck-moving blueliner for Vegas with two goals and 15 helpers through 36 games, so the hope is that he won't be out much longer. Meanwhile, Brad Hunt -- who notched an assist in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Coyotes -- figures to see additional ice time in Miller's stead.

Golden Knights' Colin Miller: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vegas placed Miller (undisclosed) on injured reserve Saturday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Miller is traveling with the Golden Knights on their current two-game road trip, but his placement on IR suggests he won't be available for either contest. The 26-year-old blueliner will be eligible to return whenever he's deemed fit to play, so another update on his status should surface once that occurs.

Golden Knights' Colin Miller: Traveling with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (undisclosed) will travel with the Golden Knights on their two-game road trip, but he may not play in either contest, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

Miller may simply be traveling because it's Vegas' annual "dads trip," but he can nonetheless be considered questionable for Saturday's matchup with LA until the team makes an official determination on his status.

Golden Knights' Colin Miller: Will not play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (undisclosed) will not play Thursday night against the Avalanche, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Miller was on quite the run -- we're talking five points in as many contests prior to missing his first game of the season last Thursday and sitting out through the holiday break. The defenseman isn't showing on IR, so check back for his availability ahead of Saturday's road game against the Kings.

Golden Knights' Colin Miller: Sitting out until after holiday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (undisclosed) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Kings, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.

Miller will miss his third straight game. He was starting to heat up before he got hut, putting up five assists in five contests while logging consistent power-play time. Brad Hunt will continue working on the bottom pairing in his place.
