Sabres' Colin Miller: Injured at worlds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sabres' Colin Miller: Finds assist in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sabres' Colin Miller: Registers assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sabres' Colin Miller: Nets goal in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sabres' Colin Miller: Back on blue line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sabres' Colin Miller: Slated to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

As expected, Miller (undisclosed) is in the projected lineup for Wednesday's game versus Pittsburgh, NHL.com reports.

Miller didn't practice Tuesday, but he was always expected to be available for Wednesday's contest. The 28-year-old blueliner is expected to skate on Buffalo's second pairing and second power-play unit Wednesday.

Sabres' Colin Miller: Deemed day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (undisclosed) is considered day-to-day, but he's expected to be available Wednesday versus Pittsburgh, John Vogl of The Athletic reports.

Miller's a little banged up, but that shouldn't keep him from playing against the Penguins. He's picked up six points through 28 games this campaign.

Sabres' Colin Miller: Collects goal in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller picked up a goal in Sunday's loss to the Islanders.

Miller struggled in Saturday's matinee Saturday with a minus-3 rating. Sunday's outcome was the same for the Sabres, but Miller tallied a goal, three shots on net, and a plus-1 rating. He has six points in 22 games this season, with 28 shots, three power-play points and a minus-13 rating.

Sabres' Colin Miller: Two points in shootout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win over the Capitals.

The 28-year-old blueliner failed to find his way onto the scoresheet through the first five games of the year, but Miller took full advantage of his spot on the Sabres' second power-play unit on an afternoon in which the two teams combined to light the lamp five times with the man advantage. He did score a career-high 10 goals and 41 points a few seasons ago with the Golden Knights, but his role in Buffalo isn't likely to allow him to match those numbers.

Sabres' Colin Miller: Heading to press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sabres' Colin Miller: Garners pair of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sabres' Colin Miller: Collects rare point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sabres' Colin Miller: Frequent healthy scratch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sabres' Colin Miller: Back to press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Sabres' Colin Miller: Unlikely OT hero
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller scored the winning goal on his only shot of the game in Sunday's 3-2 overtime victory over the Oilers. He also had two blocks and two hits.

Miller received a cross-crease feed from Marcus Johansson and tucked it past Edmonton goalie Mike Smith for his first goal of the season. It was his first regular-season goal since last February, when he was with Vegas. Miller produced 70 points in two seasons with the Golden Knights but has just five points in his first 24 games with Buffalo.

Sabres' Colin Miller: Going to press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller will be a healthy scratch during Thursday's clash with Carolina, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

Miller has been held pointless in his last nine appearances, and he has zero goals and four assists through 17 games. After posting 70 points in 147 games during his two-year stay with the Golden Knights, his transition to Buffalo hasn't gone smoothly. It's best to keep him off your radar until he shows more productivity.

Sabres' Colin Miller: Adds power-play helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller registered a power-play assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Kings.

Miller has somewhat quietly amassed four helpers in eight games. Three of his assists have come on the man advantage. The 26-year-old defenseman has added a plus-6 rating, 12 hits and 11 shots on goal this year.

Sabres' Colin Miller: Collects assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller recorded his first point as a Sabre during Thursday's win over Pittsburgh.

Miller's helper came on the power play, which ended up being the game-winning goal. He's skating on the second power-play unit and has Rasmus Dahlin as his regular partner. With Brandon Montour out with a hand injury, Miller has a great opportunity to be productive.

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.
