Buffalo, NY (WGR 550) - With Vegas in salary cap trouble, the Sabres took advantage by acquiring defenseman Colin Miller from the Golden Knights. In return, the Sabres send a second round pick in 2021 and a fifth round pick in 2022. The second round pick going to Vegas is the pick they got in the Ryan O’Reilly trade.

Miller is 26-years-old and under contract for another three years at a very affordable $3.875 million per-year cap hit. In 65 games with Vegas this season, Miller had three goals and 26 assists for 29 points. The season before in 82 games, Miller netted 10 goals and 31 assists for 41 points.

You might remember Miller with Boston, where he started his career in 2015. He was a fifth round pick of Los Angeles in the 2012 draft. Vegas took Miller off the Bruins' roster in the 2017 expansion draft.
