BOSTON (CBS) – Defenseman Kevan Miller was impressive in his first NHL go-around with the Boston Bruins just a few weeks ago, but found himself back in Providence after just nine games with the big club.

Now, the blue-liner should expect a longer stay in Boston.

The Bruins recalled Miller from the Providence Bruins on an emergency basis, the team announced on Monday.

Miller appeared in nine games with Boston after earning his first NHL recall on November 20, making his NHL debut a day later against the St. Louis Blues. The defenseman notched his first NHL goal on December 8, a game-winner against the Maple Leafs in Toronto, and finished his stint with one goal, one assist and a plus-two rating.

With defenseman Dennis Seidenberg out for the rest of the season, Miller should expect an extended stay with Boston this time around.

The 26-year-old skated in 19 games with the Providence Bruins this season and registered two goals and three assists with 39 penalty minutes. He’s skated in 154 AHL games with Providence from 2011-2013, notching seven goals and 38 assists.

Miller was present at Bruins practice Monday morning at Ristuccia Arena.
