The Boston Bruins have made an emergency recall, bringing up defenseman Kevan Miller from AHL Providence.
Miller, 26, was summoned from Providence to replace Dennis Seidenberg, who was injured during Tuesday’s 2-1 win over the New York Rangers. The specifics of Seidenberg’s injury are unclear, but it’s believed to be a lower-body issue.
Already without Adam McQuaid (hip), the B’s were forced to dig deep into their defense depth with this recall. While the club likes Miller’s toughness and tenacity, he wasn’t projected to be in the mix this season — he’s never actually played in an NHL contest, spending his entire four-year pro career in the American League.
Boston plays St. Louis on Thursday night, and it’s very likely Miller will be making his NHL debut.
