“Although my spirit for the game is there, unfortunately my body isn’t,” Miller wrote. “My overall health and my family are now the priority. This was not an easy decision to make but it’s time to hang up my skates.”

Miller spent his entire professional career with the Bruins, who signed him to an entry-level contract after he went undrafted out of the University of Vermont in 2011. The hard-nosed defenseman spent three-plus seasons with Boston’s AHL affiliate in Providence before finally landing with the B’s during the 2013-14 season.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
