Drew Miller is a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Dallas Stars.

This will be his third time in the press box in Detroit's last four games. The 32-year-old has two goals and a minus-6 rating in 17 games this season. Don't expect him to have any fantasy value going forward.

Drew Miller will tag in for Steve Ott against Montreal on Saturday.

Miller has posted two goals in 16 games this season with 18 hits thus far. Ott meanwhile has two points with 26 PIMs and 38 hits in 18 games. Neither are quite right for fantasy, unfortunately.
Nov 26 - 6:48 PM

Drew Miller and Xavier Ouellet will be scratched against the Devils on Friday.

Miller has posted two goals in 16 games this season with 18 hits thus far. Ouellet meanwhile has had trouble cracking the lineup as he's seen just six games, and none since Nov. 2nd.
Nov 25 - 6:30 PM

Drew Miller, Xavier Ouellet and Ryan Sproul will each be scratched against the Canadiens on Saturday.

Of the three only Miller has played consistently. Through 13 games he has two points with 17 hits, which unfortunately just isn't enough to warrant a spot on your roster.

Drew Miller scored an important goal for the Red Wings in Friday's 5-3 win over the Nashville Predators.

With the Red Wings trailing 2-1 in the second period, Miller beat Preds goalie Pekka Rinne to tie the game up. Detroit went on to score three more goals in the third period to come away with the win. "That was a huge goal," Blashill said. "We had played very, very well and then got into penalty trouble and they score and suddenly you’re down 2-1 after you’d played well. I was real happy with our guys’ resolve there. We had a good shift before that and Miller scored and that was a huge momentum swing." Miller has two goals in five games this season. He's never been an elite offensive player, but he's now scored nine goals in 27 games against Nashville.

Drew Miller potted the game-winning goal Wednesday night against the New York Rangers.

His first marker of the season came just under a minute into the third period to break a 1-1 tie. Luke Glendening had the lone assist on Miller's goal.
Oct 20 - 7:47 AM

Drew Miller is ready to battle for a spot on Detroit's roster after recovering from major knee surgery.

He underwent the procedure in January and missed the last 40 games of the regular season as well as the playoffs. "Every year you come to camp, that's the discussion," Miller said. "You are always fighting for minutes. I have to prove myself again and show that my knee is ready to go. I do feel I have a spot on this team and that I can contribute."
Sep 23 - 8:11 AM

Drew Miller has re-signed with Detroit on a one-year, $1.025 million contract.

He would have been eligible for unrestricted free agency on Friday if he didn't come to terms with the Red Wings. Miller skated in just 28 games last season and he posted only two points.
Jun 27 - 1:59 PM

Drew Miller and Detroit might be able to agree to terms in the near future.

Miller spent more than 100 days on the injured reserve list last season, which gives the Red Wings the option to offer him a contract that involves bonuses for games played. "We're working away, hopefully find a solution," Red Wings GM Ken Holland said. "He's a good penalty killer, he's a good leader in the room. He doesn't wear a letter but he's well-respected by the younger players. Hopefully we find a solution to keep him here for another year."
Jun 8 - 8:32 AM

The Detroit Red Wings have engaged in contract negotiations with Drew Miller.

Miller is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. He's expressed an interest in sticking with the Red Wings, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him re-sign.
Jun 7 - 9:08 AM

Drew Miller can be an unrestricted free agent in July, but he would like to be back with the Red Wings.

He is still rehabbing from the surgery he underwent in January to repair a torn ACL. "The good thing is my knee is going to come back stronger," he said. "My ACL has been torn or partially torn for 10 years. I'm going to come back a little stronger in my knee. I'm definitely motivated." It's unclear at this time if Detroit plans to bring him back.
May 2 - 11:07 AM

Drew Miller (knee) will be out of action for four-to-six months.

His injury was worse than the Red Wings initially thought and he has to undergo reconstructive surgery on his ACL. Miller only had two points in 28 games this season, but he will be missed on Detroit's penalty kill.
Jan 19 - 1:49 PM

Drew Miller will have surgery on Friday to repair a torn meniscus.

He is expected to be sidelined for a while with his "lower-body injury" and we'll probably know more about his timetable after the procedure. Miller was placed on long-term injured reserve this past Monday.
