Miller left Tuesday’s game after he has his face cut by a skate. He had around 60 stitches to close the cut but luckily didn’t suffer any damage to his eye. He will be in the lineup tonight despite the gruesome looking cut.
Miller is day-to-day after having his face cut by a skate on Tuesday.
Miller was injured after a faceoff, when Mark Stone fell forward and his right leg swung up just as Miller stepped forward. Miller was cut on his right cheek by the skate blade, immediately signaling to his bench that he needed to come off. Miller suffered two lacerations around his right eye, but the team announced there was no damage to the eye itself. He is questionable for Thursday’s game.
Drew Miller will replace Cory Emmerton at center. He will be flanked by Patrick Eaves and Tomas Holmstrom.
Eaves and Holmstrom are the only members of this four-five man fourth line with any fantasy hockey significance. Without consistent playing time, none of them should be added in standard mixed leagues.
