Soo Thunderbirds of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League have re-acquired veteran forward Joey Miller.
The Sault Ste. Marie native was dealt to the Portage Terriers of the Manitoba Jr. Hockey League by the Thunderbirds during the off-season after requesting a trade.
“I just felt it was better to come home and play in front of my family and friends,” Miller said in a release. “I want to be a leader and role model to the younger guys on the club and show them how to handle themselves at the Jr. A level.”
A 1995 birth-year, Miller had 20 goals, 35 assists, 55 points in 56 games with the Thunderbirds during the 2013-2014 regular season and added 3 goals, 3 assists, 6 points in 15 playoff outings.
