Tyler Miller Joins Crusaders

“We are very excited to be welcoming Tyler (Miller) and his family to our team,” said General Manager Kyle Chase. “Tyler (Miller) has been a defenseman that has been high on our list for the last couple of years now. We had him at our main camp to start the year and would have kept him if we could. We knew the best option for him was to go back to NAX and develop for one more season to get the necessary touches in.”

“Tyler (Miller) is today’s defenseman,” said Head Coach Adam Manah. “He may not be the biggest guy, but he skates very well, plays with pace is smart and dynamic with the puck and likes to join the rush offensively. He is tough to play against when he does those things. That’s why we have been so high on him from the start and know he will be a terrific young defenseman for us in the future. We are fortunate he will join us for the rest of 2020-21 and onward.”
