Las Vegas–As the Vegas Golden Knights wait to take on Washington this Super Bowl Sunday in Nations Capital we take a look at a defenseman Colin Miller.
The Golden Knights power play in the last 6 games, has been one part of the teams game that has seem a major improvement after struggling 1 for 28 (3.6%) before their hot streak kicked in with putting the puck in the back of the net.
Since their matchup with the Carolina Hurricanes, the Golden Knights have successfully converted 9 times on the power play in the last 14 attempts which is an impressive 64.3%.
One particular player that has caught our eye in making an impact on the man advantage for the Golden Knights is blueliner Miller. Miller has recorded 5 power play points during the 6 games for Vegas as they have lit the lamp on the man advantage.
4 of those points were assists and one power play goal when the Knights defeated the Hurricanes in Raleigh-Durham that ended that four game road swing.
With the impact that Miller has given the Golden Knights lately on special teams he is ranked second overall tied with forward David Perron with 12 power play points, two behind leader Erik Haula who has 14 on the year.
Miller has been an active participant on the for the Golden Knights whether it’s shooting or passing the puck during their recent success run on the man advantage. He’s involvement has been a plus because the team is still looking for someone on the blueline to solidify themselves as quarterback on the power play.
As the scouting report on Miller indicates he possesses a heavy shot which teams look for on the man advantage and moves the puck well. San Jose has that in Brent Burns, Ottawa in Erik Karlsson, and Tampa Bay Lightning with Victor Hedman.
If Miller can maintain this for Vegas they may not even have to look at the trade market for the power play specialist on the blueline.
