With Bruins' defensemen injured, team will look to Kevan Miller

On Saturday, when the Boston Bruins take on the Pitsburgh Penguins, the B’s will need help on the d-line, with Adam McQuaid and Johnny Boychuk on the bench.

That’s where Kevan Miller comes in; the rookie defenseman will see time on the ice for most of the game. From ESPN,

The 26-year-old defenseman was called up from Providence of the AHL and made his NHL debut with the Bruins on Nov. 21 against the St. Louis Blues. During his first recall, he played a total of three games (healthy scratch for one) before he was assigned to the P-Bruins, where he played three games until his latest promotion.

“It’s been a good ride,” he said. “Right away, it was kind of a blur when I was up the first time. I went down [to Providence] play a few games and collect my thoughts and come back up. It’s been a wild three weeks. I’m just looking forward to tonight.”

It will be interesting to see how Miller does with a majority of the B-s d-line suffering from injuries. If he makes a good impression tonight we could see a lot more of him on the ice in coming games.
