Red Wings re-sign Drew Miller to one-year deal

This is a great re-signing by the front office.

The Detroit Red Wings have come to terms on a one-year contract extension with forward, Drew Miller.

Last season was a season to forget for the Michigan State University alumni. Miller suffered a broken jaw in a December 3, 2015 game against the Arizona Coyotes that sidelined him day-to-day for about a month. He returned to the lineup on Jaunary 7, 2016, but the return was be short-lived.

Miller then suffered a torn meniscus in his knee in a game against the Anaheim Ducks that put him on the shelf for the remainder of the 2015-2016 season. The loss of Drew Miller really hurt the penalty kill. Guys like Justin Abdelkader and Darren Helm stepped up in Miller’s absence, but his presence was greatly missed in those types of situations.

It will be nice having a guy like Drew Miller back in the lineup this coming season, hopefully on a more consistent basis. He knows his role on the team, a vital one at that, and more more often than not gets the job done when called upon. Now 32 years of age, Miller will be entering his eighth season in Hockeytown.
