Bruins acquire AHL All-Stars Jones, Miller

The Boston Bruins have acquired former AHL All-Stars Martin Jones and Colin Miller from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for forward Milan Lucic.

Miller had a standout season with the AHL’s Manchester Monarchs in 2014-15, appearing in 70 regular-season games and tallying 19 goals and 33 assists for 52 points. Among AHL defensemen, he tied for the league lead in goals and tied for second in points. Miller also addded two goals and eight assists in 19 postseason games as the Monarchs won the Calder Cup.

At the 2015 AHL All-Star Classic, Miller won both the Hardest Shot (105.5 mph; AHL record) and Fastest Skater events (13.805 seconds) in the annual Skills Competition, and at season’s end, he earned a berth as a Second Team AHL All-Star.

A native of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., Miller was drafted by Los Angeles in the fifth round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. In two professional seasons, he has totaled 24 goals and 45 assists for 69 points in 135 AHL games.

Jones, 25, played four seasons in the AHL with Manchester, racking up 84 wins in 158 appearances and representing the Monarchs at the 2011 AHL All-Star Classic.

Last year with Los Angeles, Jones played 15 games and posted a 4-5-2 record, a 2.25 goals-against average and a .906 save percentage.
