Sabres To Raise #30 To The Rafters

Get ready for Miller Time in Buffalo once again. The Buffalo Sabres will be raising Ryan Miller's #30 to the rafters at KeyBank Center next season. He’ll join Dominik Hasek as the only two Sabres goaltenders to have their jerseys retired. 

Miller is the Sabres' franchise leader in games played (540), wins (284), & saves (14,847). Longtime Buffalo play-by-play man Rick Jeanneret has seen it all in his 51 years calling games for the Sabres, and he summed up Miller's legacy thusly:

"In five-plus decades, no player has worn the Buffalo Sabres sweater with more authenticity, intensity and pride than you did for 12 unforgettable years."

Miller was a Vezina Trophy winner (2009-10), and finished his Buffalo run with a 284-186-57 record, a 2.60 GAA and .916 save percentage.

"Ryan Miller embodied what fans in Western New York expect from those who wear a Buffalo Sabres uniform: on-ice excellence, commitment and authentic love for this community," said Sabres GM Kevyn Adams.
