Colin Miller (born October 29, 1992) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman. He is currently playing with the Vegas Golden Knights organization of the National Hockey League (NHL). Miller was selected by the Los Angeles Kings in the 5th round (151st overall) of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.
Miller played three seasons (2010 – 2013) of major junior hockey with the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), scoring 31 goals and 74 assists for 105 points, while earning 201 penalty minutes, in 174 games played. At the conclusion of the 2012–13 OHL season he was selected to receive the Mickey Renaud Captain's Trophy as the OHL team captain that best exemplifies leadership on and off the ice.
During the 2014–15 season, on January 25, 2015, at the AHL All-Star Skills Competition in Utica, New York, Miller won the fastest skater competition, then proceeded to set the AHL record for hardest shot, clocking at 105.5 miles per hour. On June 26, 2015, Miller was traded by the Kings along with Martin Jones and the 13th overall selection (Jakub Zboril) in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft to the Boston Bruins in exchange for Milan Lucic. After playing one season in the Bruins' organization, he signed a two-year contract extension worth $2 million.
On May 28, 2018, Miller scored the first ever Stanley Cup Finals goal in Vegas Golden Knights history during the first period of Game 1 of the 2018 Stanley Cup Finals. During Game Four of the Stanley Cup Finals, Miller was hit in the face by T. J. Oshie subsequently breaking his nose. The Washington Capitals ended up winning the Stanley Cup the following game. Miller ended both the regular and post-season setting career highs in goals, assists, and points.
