Ryan Miller will have a great honor after his retirement. Namely, his No. 30 will be retired by the Buffalo Sabers on January 19. Miller decided to retire last season. He is happy about the episode in The Sabers and has only good memories!
“I always feel like this is where I kind of grew up,” Miller said then, as quoted by NHL.com. “I went to college in my hometown (East Lansing, Michigan), and then this was my chance to kind of step out on my own and also this was my first professional step.
So a lot of firsts for me here and there’s a great part of my career and a lot of great memories”. Miller felt at home at his former club. He created many memories and friendships and spent the best days of his career.
“I’ve always appreciated my experience here as a member of the community,” Miller told the Sabres website. “Coming here and playing hockey was a dream come true. Playing with a great NHL organization and building something with a great group of guys.
But then to also feel at home in the city was important to me and to make myself a member of the community where I could give back in different ways”.
