BRAEHEAD CLAN have pulled off a signing coup after landing NHL star and Detroit Red Wings ace Drew Miller.
The left wing star, who was part of the Anaheim Ducks' Stanley Cup winning team six years ago, will make his Clan debut this weekend after agreeing a move across the pond for the lockout period.
Miller, whose big brother plays in goal for Buffalo Sabres, will play in this weekend's Scottish derby double against Dundee Stars and Edinburgh Capitals and has made 213 appearances for the Detroit Red Wings since signing for them in the 2009/2010 season.
A Clan spokesperson said: "It is a true honour to have a player of Drew Miller's calibre on the team.
“To have an NHL player from such a renowned team join us is just fantastic.
“Not only is this great for the team and the fans, but it is also a fantastic opportunity for the players to train and play in games with a guy who is a current NHL star."
Miller has played in 163 AHL games in which he scored 55 goals with 55 assists, giving him 110pts.
In his 280 NHL appearances he has so far scored 40 goals and 37 assists for 77pts.
