With their fifth-round pick (No. 151 overall) the Kings selected defenseman Colin Miller from Sault Ste. Marie of the Ontario Hockey League. Miller, 19, is listed at 6 feet and 175 pounds.
This season, his second season with Sault Ste. Marie, Miller had eight goals and 20 assists in 54 games. The Kings had familiarity with Miller, as he spent time in their development camp and rookie camp last fall as a tryout player after he went undrafted last year.
In this story from the Sault Star, Miller talked about his time with the Kings and said, “It’s close to the hardest thing I’ve ever been through in hockey. I learned a lot on the ice and it definitely opened my eyes as to the life of a professional athlete. I saw how hard they have to work and how committed they have to be.”
