Drew Miller: Short-term move to Brahead Clan from Detroit Red Wings
Braehead Clan have pulled off a major coup with the signing of Stanley Cup-winner Drew Miller from Detroit Red Wings.
Miller, who was part of the Anaheim Ducks team who won the Stanley Cup in 2007-2008, will join the Scottish outfit on Wednesday as the current NHL lockout continues.
The left wing American star is available for this weekend's Elite League fixtures against Dundee Stars and Edinburgh Capitals.
A spokesperson for the Clan told the Elite League official website: "It is a true honour to have a player of Drew Miller's calibre on the team.
"To have an NHL player from such a renowned team join us is just fantastic.
"Not only is this great for the team and the fans, but it is also a fantastic opportunity for the players to train and play in games with a guy who is a current NHL star.
"We are really looking forward to Drew's arrival and we hope that the fans will come out and show their support for both Drew and the team. This truly is a huge thing for this club and for hockey fans in the Gardner Conference, and we are delighted to have Drew on board."
Miller added: "I am happy to have signed a contract with the Clan and I look forward to getting over there and working with the guys."
Miller has played 53 games with the Anaheim Ducks, 14 matches with Tampa Bay Lighting and 213 games with the Detroit Red Wings since signing for them in the 2009-2010 season.
