The Vegas Golden Knights officially selected 23 year-old Colin Miller from Boston Wednesday Night.
The NHL protection lists were announced Sunday. The Bruins decided to protect Kevan Miller over Colin in a controversial decision that had been subject to months of discussion within the Boston media.
It was highly likely that the Miller that was not protected by Boston would eventually be selected by Vegas, unless a deal was made behind the scenes between Bruins GM Don Sweeney and Vegas GM George McPhee.
Colin Miller was drafted 151st by the Los Angeles Kings in the 2012 NHL entry draft. Miller was traded to Boston in 2015 along with goaltender Martin Jones and the Kings 13th overall pick in exchange for winger Milan Lucic.
Miller has 9 goals and 20 assists in 103 career NHL games. He averaged 15:48 time on ice in 61 games with the Bruins during the 2016-2017 regular season.
