Drew Miller wants to contribute more offensively this season.
Miller produced seven goals and 15 points in 82 games last year. "I want to definitely improve on my points from last year," he said. "I had a lot more chances to score last year ... just didn’t put the pucks in the net. That's something I've worked on this summer, shooting pucks, a quicker release." His career high for points in a season came in 2011-12 when he generated a total of 25 and it would be surprising if he hit the 20-mark in 2014-15. Aug 18 - 12:34 PM

Drew Miller potted two goals, including the game winner, in Detroit's 4-2 win over Ottawa on Sunday.

He has scored three of his four goals in his last three games. Miller is a dependable bottom-six forward for the Red Wings, but he doesn't have any fantasy value.

Drew Miller netted his first goal of the 2013-14 campaign on Saturday.

Miller has firmly established himself as a bottom-six forward with Detroit and has managed to chip in occasionally in that role. It still hasn't been nearly enough to make him worth owning in fantasy leagues and we don't think that will change.

Drew Miller's recently signed three-year extension with the Detroit Red Wings is worth $4.05 million.

Miller will come with a $1.35 million cap hit after earning an average of $837,500 annually with his old deal. "It feels great," Miller said about re-signing with Detroit. "I'm excited, my wife is excited, my family is excited. This is where I wanted to be. It's a great organization, great coaching staff, great bunch of guys. We have a lot of talent in the locker room, and I believe we'll be a very good team next year." He doesn't have any fantasy value in standard leagues, but he's a solid bottom-six forward.

Drew Miller has reportedly inked a three-year extension with the Detroit Red Wings.

Miller was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer after completing his two-year, $1,675,000 contract. He had four goals and eight points in 44 games this season.

The Red Wings have killed off nine straight Blackhawks' power plays heading into tonight’s Game 5 at the United Center and helping to give Detroit a 3-1 series lead over the No. 1 seeded Chicago team.

The Blackhawks haven’t converted on a man advantage since winning the opening game of the second-round series. "I think we’ve been able to do some good things, disrupt them up ice and make it hard for them," defenseman Niklas Kronwall said. "We know that they’re so talented, all they need is once chance and the puck’s in. We’ve been able to do a good job there, I think." The hot streak on penalty kills coincided with the return of left winger Drew Miller (broken thumb). He entered the series for Game 2, giving the Wings three options on the fourth line to use as penalty killers, in Miller, Patrick Eaves and Cory Emmerton. As Kronwall put it, "Millsie getting back in the lineup’s been huge for us."

Drew Miller's goal 8:20 into the second period turned out to be the game winner in Monday's 3-1 win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Miller's goal wasn't nearly as pretty as some of the others scored Monday night, but that doesn't make it any less important. The gritty winger charged the net and swatted home the rebound of a Patrick Eaves shot only 30 seconds after Gustav Nyquist made it 1-0 for Detroit. Miller also logged a shift of 3:15 early in the second period, most of which was spent in the defensive zone and started with the tail end of a Blackhawks power play.

Coach Mike Babcock was very pleased to have Drew Miller back in the lineup.

Miller was out of the Detroit lineup since April 20 with a hand injury before returning Saturday. "I've got three penalty killers now on the fourth line," Babcock said. "Millsie knows how to play in all positions and he can really skate and get on the forecheck. He's not a big man but he's got a great stick and knows how to play, and so he makes us a much better team." Miller's return to the lineup bumped Todd Bertuzzi to the press box.

Drew Miller logged 12:07 minutes on Saturday in his return from a hand injury.

"I felt good," said Miller. "I was ready to go for sure, I skated a lot, and I felt fine, didn't have any issues." He had a shot on goal and a blocked shot. He also helped the Red Wings kill penalties in their 4-1 victory.

Drew Miller (hand) will return to Detroit's lineup on Saturday.

Miller said on Friday that he wasn't 100%, but he felt good enough to play. This will be his first game since April 20.
Sat, May 18, 2013 01:00:00 PM

Drew Miller (hand) believes he's ready to return to the Red Wings' lineup.

"I wouldn’t say it’s 100% percent, but I wouldn’t say it’s far off," Miller said. "I think I can play. I’m comfortable with it. I thought practice today was the big step to see how it was. I got through practice and I felt fine and everything, I had no pain. I feel like I was able to perform what I need to perform to be able to play. As far as I’m concerned, I’m available." Miller had four goals and eight points in 44 regular season games. Consider him probable for Game 2 on Saturday.

Drew Miller's broken hand won't require surgery and he's hoping to return during the playoffs should the Red Wings qualify and advance deep.

"I'm pounding the calcium and Vitamin D," Miller said. "Hopefully, I can be back on the ice and skating and be in the weight room to do as much as I can to be ready. Hopefully, we get in, and then I'll do as much as I can to help out and get back as soon as I can." He expects to need at least four weeks to recover.

Detroit forward Drew MIller suffered a broken hand in the first period of Saturday's shootout loss to the Canucks and will miss the remainder of the season.

It's a tough break for Miller despite the fact he has struggled this season, scoring only four times in 44 contests. He's a bigger loss for the Red Wings than he'll be for fantasy teams.

Drew Miller won't return to Saturday's game because of an upper-body injury.

Miller played just 2:44 before leaving against the Canucks. He has eight points this year.
