Buffalo Sabres

The Sabres have acquired Colin Miller from the Golden Knights for a 2021 second-round pick and a 2022 fifth-round pick.

The Golden Knights have run into some cap issues and Miller is the second player to fall victim to that this week. Miller isn’t the best in his own-end but provides a lot in the offensive-zone and possesses a massive point-shot that is a weapon on the power-play. Miller had three goals and 26 assists (29 points) in 65 games last season, but had a 10-goal, 41-point campaign in 2017-18. Miller has three years left on his deal and joins a blueline that already has offensive-minded defensemen in Rasmus Dahlin, Rasmus Ristolainen and Brandon Montour.

Miller is expected to be a healthy scratch for Game 1.

Miller appeared in the final six games of the regular season but it looks like he will be a healthy scratch in favour of Jon Merrill for Game 1 in San Jose. Miller is a solid offensive defenseman, collecting three goals and 26 assists (29 points) in 65 games but Merrill brings a more reliable defensive game.

The Golden Knights signed Colin Miller to a four-year extension worth $15.5M ($3.875M AAV).

Miller had an outstanding 2018 season finishing tied for 23rd among defensemen in goals (10), tied for 25th in assists (31) and tied for 27th in points (41). Miller, who gets sheltered offensive-zone starts, finished the season with a 56.3 CF% and +7.3 relative Corsi. This contract looks like an absolute steal for the Golden Knights.
