Left-winger Earl Miller was a steady role player for parts of five seasons in the 1920s and '30s. He was a fine player in college and also put up impressive numbers in the minors.
Born in Lumsden, Saskatchewan, Miller played junior with the Saskatoon Nutana in 1923-24. He then spent two years at the University of Saskatchewan before turning pro in 1926-27 with the Saskatoon Shieks of the Prairie League.
During the late '20s, Miller was a versatile worker for the Chicago Black Hawks. He often formed a useful forward line with Vic Ripley and Frank Ingram and helped the club make the post-season twice. Late in the 1932 season, Miller was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs who were looking to add depth as the playoffs approached. The wily veteran dressed for seven playoff games and was a part of the franchise's first Stanley Cup as the Maple Leafs. Miller retired in 1936 after spending four years in the IAHL. His best year was 1933-34 when he led the league with 40 points in 43 games while playing for the Syracuse Stars.
