Hurricanes agree to terms with Miller

The Carolina Hurricanes, parent club of the AHL’s Charlotte Checkers, have agreed to terms with forward Andrew Miller on a one-year, two-way contract.

“Andrew played well in his brief time with Charlotte last season,” said Ron Francis, Hurricanes executive vice president and general manager. “Adding him to our group of forwards gives us more flexibility up and down our organization’s depth chart.”

Miller, 27, totaled 18 goals and 27 assists for 45 points in 55 AHL games between Bakersfield and Charlotte last season, and also skated in six NHL games with Edmonton.

The three-year pro from Bloomfield Hills, Mich., has notched 53 goals and 86 assists for 139 points in 170 AHL contests, and was an AHL All-Star in 2015. He also has one goal and five assists in 15 career NHL games.

Miller originally signed as a free agent with Edmonton following his collegiate career at Yale University, where he captained the Bulldogs to a national championship in 2013.
