As per Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, the Vegas Golden Knights have made their choice on who they wish to draft from the Boston Bruins in the Expansion Draft.
The original tweet came from Sportnet’s John Shannon who said that Oilers defenseman Griffen Reinhart will be the player chosen by the Golden Knights, Friedman retweeted the post by saying that Colin Miller will join Vegas as well.
Rumors have been flowing earlier in the day that Vegas would pick Colin Miller and proceed to use him as trade bait to the Toronto Maple Leafs who were interested in Miller’s services. Whether or not that trade happens, is still to be found out.
Colin Miller was acquired by the Bruins back in 2015 as he was a part of the infamous Bruins/Kings trade that sent Milan Lucic to the Los Angeles Kings. Colin Miller came to Boston along with Martin Jones and a 2015 1st round selection that became Jakub Zboril.
Miller has only played in the NHL with the Bruins, playing in 103 games totaling 9-20-29 in that span. Last season, Miller played in 61 games with the black and gold with 6-7-13 totals and an even rating.
