In his seventeenth season, goaltender Ryan Miller did not disappoint in the slightest for the Anaheim Ducks. Sadly, his season did not end with the Stanley Cup that he deserves from putting up so many stellar years and being one of the most legendary American born goaltenders to ever put his pads to the ice, but that does not mean that he did not give his very best.
In twenty-three games played, Miller started nineteen and had a record of 9-6-4. It does not seem like the best record or anything special, but considering the circumstance of his age and possible retirement, there has to be a place on this list for him. Even despite those six losses, he only allowed more than three goals in a game four times in his twenty-three games. Miller bolstered a .907 save percentage with 621 saves against 685 shots faced in 1238 minutes and had eleven quality starts (QS) compared to only two really bad starts (RBS). For such a grizzled veteran, it is impressive to see him putting up those numbers at age thirty-nine.
If this is truly Miller’s last season in the NHL, it will have been a pleasure to have seen him represent Orange County for three seasons out of his seventeen in the NHL. No doubt a Hall of Famer, we wish Miller the very best in whatever his future holds. It was a pleasure to see him go out with such a bang.
