It’s been a quiet Free Agency Day so far for the Bruins, but they did make a minor move: defenseman Kevan Miller is back in the mix.
Kevan Miller has re-signed with Boston— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) October 9, 2020
One year deal. Total value could be worth up to $2M depending on bonuses. https://t.co/2DrV2ChnhV— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) October 9, 2020
Hey, it’s news!
If you remember, Don Sweeney essentially said earlier this year that the Bruins were going to offer Miller a contract. It appears they ended up doing just that, and Miller accepted.
Earlier this fall, Miller’s agent posted a video of his client working out, doing one-legged jumps and other things that pro athletes do for fun.
He looked pretty mobile, which is a good sign for a guy who has had knee, general leg, back, everything issues over the last few seasons.
Miller’s recently expired deal carried a cap hit of $2.5 million, and given his injury history, it’s no surprise this deal is at a slightly lower number.
The full breakdown:

Miller has played 58, 68, 39, and 0 games, respectively, since the 2017-2018 season.
He hasn’t played since April 4, 2019, missing the entirety of the 2019-2020-Weird Bubble season.
Still, if he’s healthy, he might give the Bruins some options on the blueline.
What do you think of the Kevan Miller deal?
