Brad Miller was a rugged defenceman who played parts of six seasons in the NHL during the 1980s and '90s. His game was based on utilizing his 6'4" frame to take the body and keep the front of his net clear.
The native of Edmonton played midget with the city's Knights of Columbus before joining the WHL's Regina Pats. In 1987, he was taken 22nd overall by the Buffalo Sabres who then returned him to junior. Miller spent much of his first four pro seasons working on his consistency with the AHL's Rochester Americans. In 1991-92, he played 42 games and showed plenty of grit but his skill level kept him from making a significant impact in the league.
After the Ottawa Senators in the 1992 Expansion Draft claimed him, Miller continued to spend most of his time in the minors. He dressed for eight games with the Calgary Flames in 1993-94 but was strictly an IHL regular for the next several years.
