Winnipeg Jets Acquire Colin Miller from New Jersey Devils

After already making a trade with the New Jersey Devils to acquire Tyler Toffoli, both teams made a second trade for another player. The Winnipeg Jets have acquired Colin Miller from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for Winnipeg’s fourth-round draft selection in 2026.

The veteran, right-shot defenseman will provide depth and an abundance of Stanley Cup playoff experience. Drawing similarities to Toffoli, the fellow 31-year-old played in the Ontario Hockey League and played for his hometown Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds before making his NHL debut with the Boston Bruins.

Colin Miller then found his way to the Vegas Golden Knights in the expansion draft and was labeled as the “original misfits” group. Miller’s career high in goals (10), assists (31) and points (41) came during his 2017-18 season with the Vegas Golden Knights. Miller also played all 82 regular season games and 20 post-season games, which included three goals and seven points during that playoff run.

In Miller’s career, he’s played 507 career NHL games for the Boston Bruins, Vegas Golden Knights, Buffalo Sabres, Dallas Stars, and the New Jersey Devils. Like Toffoli, Colin Miller is not expected to play tonight against the Seattle Kraken in Seattle. It is expected that both Toffoli and Miller will join the team in Vancouver tomorrow and not be in the game-day lineup tomorrow night versus Vancouver.
