The Vegas Golden Knights have traded defenseman Colin Miller to the Buffalo Sabres for a 2021 2nd round pick (St. Louis) and a 2022 5th round pick. (pending trade call – Bob McKenzie)

The 26-year old right-handed defenseman was drafted 151st overall in the 5th round of the 2012 draft by the Los Angeles Kings.

Thoughts from the media

Jonathan Willis: “Not a great return for Vegas, but you can see the value Miller had on the market given that the Golden Knights were in a major cap bind. Nice addition for the Sabres, who now have Ristolainen, Montour, Miller, Bogosian and Casey Nelson as right-shot defencemen.”

Patrick Johnston: “Once again a reminder that away from the draft, you can make value trades without giving up first round picks.”

Mike Harrington: “Miller immediately becomes a top-4 caliber add for .”

Mike Augello: “Good addition for the . Miller was very effective in VGK’s Cup run in 18, and is locked up for three more years at a reasonable $3.875 Million AAV.”

Todd Cordell: “Know Vegas was up against it but this is a nice bit of business for the Sabres.”

Travis Yost: “Second round pick for a quality second pairing guy seems pretty good.”
