Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Drew Miller
Drew Miller was born February 17, 1984 in Dover, New Jersey. Drafted by the Anaheim Ducks in the sixth round, 186th overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, Miller is a graduate of Michigan State University.

Prior to making his professional hockey debut, Miller served as captain of Michigan State and was named the team's MVP & the CCHA's Best Defensive Forward in his final year of junior. After he was drafted by the Ducks, Miller spent the entire season with the club's AHL affiliate in Portland. However, he was recalled for the 2007 Stanley Cup playoffs due to an injury to Ducks forward Chris Kunitz. Miller would go on to see action in three playoff games that postseason, including a pair in the Stanley Cup Final, and help his club win the Stanley Cup.

On August 13, 2009, Miller was traded to the Tampa Bay with Anaheim's 3rd round choice (Adam Janosik) in 2010 Entry Draft for Evgeny Artyukhin.

Shortly into the 2009 season Miller was waived by the lightning and claimed by the Detroit Red Wings.
