Bruins’ Kevan Miller retires at 33

Boston Bruins defenseman Kevan Miller has announced his retirement. The 33-year-old played in only 28 games after breaking his kneecap in 2019.

“Although my spirit for the game is there, unfortunately my body isn’t,” he wrote on Instagram. “My overall health and my family are now the priority. This was not an easy decision to make but it’s time to hang up my skates.”

Miller played in 352 games during his eight seasons with the Bruins, and scored 13 goals and had 58 assists.

Miller was injured in April 2019. He was rehabbing his knee when it broke again during the Eastern Conference finals in the same year, resulting in him missing the entirety of the 2019-20 season.

“It’s hard to put into words what it means to wear the spoked ‘B,’” he wrote. “It was an honor to put on that jersey on each night.”

“Forever a Bruin,” he signed.
