Bruins Recall Defenseman Kevan Miller On Emergency Basis

BOSTON (CBS) – With the Bruins’ blue line a bit banged up, the team has recalled defenseman Kevan Miller from the Providence Bruins on an emergency basis.

Miller, in his fourth season in the Bruins’ organization, will join the team Thursday and be eligible to play Thursday night when Boston hosts the St. Louis Blues at the TD Garden. He skated in 12 games with Providence this season, registering one goal and two assists.

The blue-liner has spent the last three seasons with Providence after signing with Boston as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Vermont, notching six goals and 37 assists in 147 games. This marks Miller’s first NHL recall, and should he play on Thursday, it would be his NHL debut.

Given Boston’s currently ailing defensive corps, there is a good chance that happens.

Dennis Seidenberg left Tuesday’s win over the Rangers with a lower-body injury after just one shift and Matt Bartkowski also appeared to hurt his knee, but was able to return later in the game. It’s unclear if either player will be able to suit up Thursday night, so chances are Miller will see the first action of his NHL career against the Blues.
