Ducks Sign Michigan State\'s Miller

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has signed left wing Drew Miller to a two-year entry level contract. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. Miller will report immediately to the Portland Pirates, Anaheim's primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League, for that club's second-round best-of-seven series vs. Hartford (Portland currently leads the series, 1-0).

Miller, 22 (2/17/84), served as captain of the Spartans in 2005-06, leading the club in scoring with 18-25=43 points in 44 games. The East Lansing, Michigan, native was named Michigan State's Most Valuable Player and was honored as the Central Collegiate Hockey Association's Best Defensive Forward. Miller was also named to the CCHA All-Tournament Team, helping Michigan State to capture the 2006 CCHA Tournament title.

In his three seasons at Michigan State, 6-2, 180-pound forward totaled 39-47=86 points in 125 games.

In addition to his work on the ice, Miller created the Spartan Buddy Program, a partnership that enabled MSU athletes to make regular visits to local pediatric hospital patients. He was also heavily involved in pen pal programs with local classrooms, Teams for Toys, DARE, and the Special Olympics. For his efforts, Miller was recognized as the CCHA's 2006 Illitch Humanitarian Award winner and was nominated for the Hockey Humanitarian Award each of the past two years.

Miller is the cousin of former Mighty Duck player Kip Miller and assistant coach Kelly Miller. His older brother, Ryan, is a goaltender for the Buffalo Sabres. Drew Miller was the 10th member of his family to play hockey at Michigan State.
