I realized recently that I don't write enough about the history of the Boston Bruins, so I have decided to add a weekly (or when I remember to do it) feature on former Bruins that didn't shy away from the rough stuff. This week I am featuring Bruins' single season PIM leader Jay Miller.
The Wellesley, MA native and UNH alum played 7 seasons in the NHL, including 3 and a half seasons with his hometown Boston Bruins. During the 1987-1988 season, Miller set the Bruins single-season penalty minute record with 304 PIMs. In 446 career NHL games, Miller compiled 1,723 PIMs to go along with 84 points (40-44-84).
Jay Miller now resides on the Cape, where he owns Courtyard Restaurant & Pub in Cataumet.
