The Bruins have recalled defenseman Kevan Miller from Providence on an emergency basis. Miller should make his NHL debut tomorrow against St. Louis at TD Garden.
Miller is needed because of injuries to Dennis Seidenberg and Adam McQuaid. Seidenberg played just one shift in yesterday’s 2-1 win over the Rangers. Seidenberg left in the first period because of a lower-body injury. It is unknown how much time Seidenberg will miss.
McQuaid is likely to miss his sixth straight game tomorrow. McQuaid could return for Saturday’s game against Carolina.
This is Miller’s first NHL recall. Miller was the last player cut from training camp. The right-shot Miller is a stay-at-home defenseman. In 12 AHL games this season, the former University of Vermont defenseman has one goal and two assists. The Bruins signed Miller as a free agent on Oct. 21, 2011.
