Kevan Miller is probably thankful he plays for the AHL’s Providence Bruins. The commute back and forth to Boston isn’t that bad when you factor in other teams’ NHL-AHL squads. Miller has been once again recalled to the Boston Bruins. Miller’s first run with Boston saw him skate in three games earlier this season. It was his first career promotion to the NHL. He got that on November 20th, and he made his NHL debut on November 21st against the St. Louis Blues at TD Garden. He ended up playing three games with two shots on goal for Boston.

Miller has played for the Providence Bruins for the last three seasons.

The reason for the recall wasn’t made clear at the announcement. One can only assume that either Dennis Seidenberg or Adam McQuaid have aggravated a recent injury. McQuaid only saw thirteen minutes in the game against Columbus, so its possible he’ll be sitting out a game or two. Kevan Miller was the last player dropped from the roster in training camp, and has done well in Providence on the blue line.
