Golden Knights trade Miller to Sabres for picks

BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Buffalo Sabres have acquired defenseman Colin Miller from the Vegas Golden Knights for a pair of draft picks, the Sabres announced Friday.

The Golden Knights acquired a second-round pick in the 2021 draft and a 2022 fifth-round selection..

It’s the second trade in two days for Vegas, which continues to shed payroll in a bid to get under the $81.5 million salary cap. Miller completed the first year of a four-year, $15.5 million contract he signed last summer. On Thursday, the Golden Knights traded forward Erik Haula to Carolina.

The 26-year-old Miller has four seasons of NHL experience and had three goals and 26 assists for 29 points in 65 games last season. That was a drop-off from the previous year when he led Golden Knights defensemen with a career-best 41 points (10 goals, 31 assists).
