Ryan Miller is set to give up his senior season at Michigan State and sign a deal with the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres, according to a number of published reports.
Miller, who is one of just two goaltenders to ever win the Hobey Baker Award, has been hinting all summer that he would leave school if the money was right.
Miller won the 2001 Hobey Baker Award when he posted a 31-5-4 record, a 1.32 goals against average and 10 shutouts. He followed that up last season with a 26-9-5 record, 1.77 GAA and eight shutouts. He 26 career shutouts are an all-time NCAA record.
