Anaheim Ducks Goaltender, Ryan Miller is this week’s guest on The Life of Dad Show.
On The Show…
Ryan Miller stops by the Life of Dad studio to chat with Art Eddy about being a dad and how he balances work and family, talking to teammates about fatherhood, his memorable first game in the NHL and his inspiration for starting up the Steadfast Foundation. The Steadfast Foundation is dedicated to assisting young people in their battle against cancer, and young people with mobility challenges expand their horizons.
About Ryan Miller…
Ryan is married to actress, Noureen DeWulf. They got married in 2010. Together they have a son, Bodhi and a French bulldog named Puck.
Miller can be counted among the best goaltenders of his generation, and his play was never better than during the 2009-2010 NHL season. In that highlight-reel year, Miller accounted for all but four of the Buffalo Sabres’ goaltending wins, going 41-18-8 with a .929 save percentage and a 2.22 goals-against average.
In February, he helped the United States win a silver medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics. The championship game ended on Sidney Crosby’s overtime goal for Canada, but Miller was named the tournament’s MVP. At season’s end, there were more accolades. He won the Vezina Trophy and he was named to the NHL First All-Star Team.
Miller’s excellence had been hinted at during a stellar collegiate career. During his three seasons at Michigan State, the East Lansing, Mich., native had an NCAA-record 26 shutouts, won the 2001 Hobey Baker Award as the top player in college hockey and posted goals-against averages of 1.53, 1.32 and 1.77.
Selected by the Sabres in the fifth round (No. 138) in the 1999 NHL Draft, Miller leapfrogged Martin Biron to become the Sabres’ undisputed No. 1 goaltender in 2005-2006 and never played fewer than 40 games a season in Buffalo after that. He left Buffalo as the franchise leader in games (540) and wins (284), had five seasons of 30 or more wins and twice had 40 or more.
On Oct. 28, 2014, Miller became the 30th goaltender in NHL history to win 300 games when the Canucks defeated the Carolina Hurricanes 4-1.
About The Steadfast Foundation…
The Steadfast Foundation was founded in 2006 by Ryan Miller to benefit people battling cancer, especially those with childhood forms of the disease. Since then, Steadfast has broadened its scope and initiatives in an effort to aid people who are mobile challenged and rely on wheelchairs.
