The Boston Bruins inked defenseman Kevan Miller to a two-year, $1.6 million extension on Tuesday.

The one-way deal is worth $750K in 2014-15 and $850K in 2015-16, according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie. Miller, 26, would have been a restricted free agent this summer had he not signed this extension.

The Bruins now have most of their defense locked up through at least 2014-15, although Torey Krug‘s RFA negotiations could provide some challenges.

Miller has played in 16 games with the Bruins this season, his first making it at the NHL level. He’s averaged 16:53 minutes per appearance in 2013-14.

    As well as he’s playing for the B’s lately, that’s a steal. Good move getting him locked down at that price.

      Steal is right. He’s looked better and better every game. He played a lot with Chara this past weekend vs the top lines of Chi and LA and looked good doing it. He’s even starting to carry the puck more and make some plays offensively. Im excited to see how good he could be, I think his progression will be similar to Boychuks

      Sadly, this is probably true :( Always loved Darth Quaider, he’s a real team player and should have no trouble finding his niche on a new squad.

    This is an absolute steal. This guy is probably already worth more than that. Way to go PC!

    A trade is coming soon with this signing. Most likely Quaider which sucks because he’s always been a team first guy

    Great signing, capable top 6 D for cheap and also makes him a more attractive trade chip to other franchises giving PC another piece to possibly move. I’m more interested in how Krug’s negotiations are going to go…
