ESTEVAN ACQUIRES 1997-BORN ARTHUR MILLER FROM THE STEINBACH PISTONS (MJHL).
The Power Dodge Estevan Bruins are pleased to announce that the club has acquired Arthur Miller (1997) from the Steinbach Pistons in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League in exchange for Isaac Embree (1998) and Nolan Ferguson (1998).
“A large part of the success our team has had over the last 13 months stems from the culture and character in the dressing room,” Head Coach and General Manager Chris Lewgood said. “Today we’re parting ways with two very good young men who helped build that culture in to what it is today. Both players will be missed greatly by their teammates, coaches, and fans.”
Miller, a native of Regina, SK, has played in 3 games this season for the Swift Current Broncos adding 2 assists. The 5-9, 180 lb forward has played in 107 games for the Swift Current Broncos of over the past three seasons where he has registered 24 points (9g – 15a) and 150 penalty minutes. Miller also contributed 1 goal, 2 assists and 16 penalty minutes in 2016-17 playoffs, playing in 14 games.
“Arthur Miller brings a much-needed piece to the club. We have had to ask some of our young, inexperienced players to play on the left side with Goberis and McChesney. All the players we have cycled through there have done well considering being put in a very tough spot with high expectations. Miller is a natural fit with those guys and brings a lot of speed, skill, and grit to what has already been one of the league’s most explosive lines. He is a player we will rely on in a big way. His experience with a very good Swift Current program is also something we can look to as a positive as we move forward this season,” added Chris Lewgood.
The Bruins will be back at home Wednesday, November 1 to face off against the Notre Dame Hounds at 7 pm.
