Oilers re-sign AHL farmhands Hunt, Miller
Edmonton has agreed to new one-year deals with defenseman Brad Hunt and forward Andrew Miller, the club announced on Monday.
Hunt, 26, appeared in 11 games for the OIlers last season, scoring a goal and three points. Miller, also 26, scored six points in nine games -- a pretty good point total in a season which he impressed offensively at the AHL level, having scored 60 points in 63 games with the Oklahoma City Barons.
It’s expected that both will serve as depth options next year, and will spend most of their time with Edmonton’s new AHL affiliate in Bakersfield. That said, it’ll be interesting to see if Miller gets an extended look at the NHL level given how he scored in an admittedly small sample size last season.
