A Scorer In Scotland

from Andy Newport of the Paisley Daily Express,

Braehead Clan boss Jordan Krestanovich is praying striking NHL stars don’t patch up their differences with big-money owners just yet ... because he is desperate to keep hold of rink star Drew Miller.

Stanley Cup winner Miller has moved to Scotland to play for the Clan while he and the rest of his NHL colleagues refuse to take part in North America’s top league as a result of a pay dispute....

Miller bagged a hat-trick for the Clan in Thursday night’s 7-2 thrashing of Hull in England’s north east and, with the Stingrays making the return journey to the Braehead Arena tonight, player/coach Krestanovich is refusing to think about the consequences of the NHL dispute being settled.

He told Express Sports: “Drew has been awesome since he arrived in Scotland.

“On the ice, he’s put in some great performances and really showed what a star he is.

“His hat-trick against Hull was incredible.

“Off the ice, he’s been brilliant too. He’s a great influence on the other guys in the changing room.

more and according to the team's website, Miller has 8 goals and 18 points in 13 games.

People really don’t understand what a lockout is, do they?

oonagi,  I came to say the same thing.

And also that I’m glad Miller is getting recognized for what he’s capable of doing.  He’s a QUALITY grinder.  Given our glut of F’s we have I was and still am hoping management sees he’s pure Wing and keeps him around.  Reminds me of a Maltby with slick hands.  Miller is a keeper for sure
