2018 Fantasy Outlook
Miller was a pleasant surprise in his third NHL season, racking up 10 goals and 41 points on the Golden Knights' blue line. The 25-year-old rearguard was left exposed by the Bruins at the expansion draft and went on to play a key role in Vegas' tremendously successful inaugural season. Miller found himself a role on the second power-play unit and scored the first Stanley Cup Final goal in Vegas history. While asking for another 40-point campaign might be a bit much, Miller clearly has an offensive side to his game and is an asset with the man advantage. He fired 177 shots on goal but also dished out a punishing 165 hits, so while his offense could regress a bit in 2018-19, he should still be considered a fantasy asset in the majority of settings.

Miller had two assists, three shots, and a plus-4 rating in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Canucks.
ANALYSIS
The defender has seen offense come in spurts at times this season. He assisted the last two tallies of a five-goal first period for Vegas. Miller has 26 points (three goals, 23 assists) in 54 appearances, but the consistency of his production is likely to remain limited as long as he's on the third defense pairing.

Miller, who logged six goals and 13 points in 61 games for the Bruins last season, was tabbed by Vegas in the NHL expansion draft, which presents the skilled 24-year-old with a golden opportunity to earn more consistent ice time. The 6-foot-1, 196-pounder brings an intriguing mix of speed and shooting velocity to his new franchise’s blue-line mix. However, part of the reason that Boston exposed Miller in the expansion draft, despite his upside, is that his puck management and positioning remain a work in progress 103 games into his NHL career. Should Miller earn regular power-play time this coming season, he could find himself on the fantasy radar, but as is the case with most of the players added by Vegas this past June, the defender’s future and role with the organization have yet to be determined.
Miller, who came over from the Kings last year in the Milan Lucic deal, logged 42 games with the Bruins in 2015-16 while recording three goals and 16 points. He’s already proved quite productive at the AHL level, and when the 23-year-old blueliner’s confidence doesn’t waver and he’s able to avoid costly turnovers, he’s an upside play whose shot and skating ability are assets to the Bruins’ attack. Having signed a one-way deal with Boston, we’d expect Miller to earn regular duty with the big club and if he carves out power play role in the process, he could emerge as a fantasy sleeper.
Miller, who the Kings dealt to the Bruins along with goalie Martin Jones and the 13th overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft in exchange for Milan Lucic, is in line to compete with the likes of Matt Irwin, Kevan Miller, Joe Morrow, and Zach Trotman for a regular slot on the Boston blue line. The 6-foot-1, 201-pound Miller, who recorded 19 goals and 52 points in 70 games for AHL Manchester last season, certainly has the sort of skill set needed to advance to the next level in his third pro season. Miller, who turns 23 in October, stole the show at last year’s skills competition at the AHL All-Star Game, clocking in as the competition’s fastest skater, while also setting an AHL record with his 105.5-mile-per-hour shot.
