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.
With the No.7 Pick in the 2019 NHL Draft the Buffalo Sabres select Dylan Cozens.
