'''Jason Miller''' (born March 1, 1971 in [[Edmonton]], [[Alberta]]) is an [[Canadian]] former professional [[ice hockey]] [[winger (ice hockey)|left winger]] who last played for [[Dresdner Eislöwen]] in the [[2nd Bundesliga (ice hockey)|2nd Bundesliga]].

'''Jason Miller''' (born March 1, 1971 in [[Edmonton]], [[Alberta]], [[Canada]]) is an [[ice hockey]] [[winger|left winger]] currently playing for the [[Dresdner Eislöwen]] in the [[2nd Bundesliga (ice hockey)|2nd Bundesliga]].
   
==Playing career==
+
Miller started out in junior hockey with the [[Medicine Hat Tigers]] and won the [[Memorial Cup]] in his first season there (1987-88). A good junior career got him picked 1st (18th overall) by the [[New Jersey Devils]] in the [[1989 NHL Entry Draft]].
Miller was drafted 18th overall by the [[New Jersey Devils]] in the [[1989 NHL Entry Draft]].<ref name=loh>{{cite web |url= http://www.legendsofhockey.net/LegendsOfHockey/jsp/SearchPlayer.jsp?player=11119 |title = Jason Miller's Player Profile |publisher = Legends of Hockey.net| accessdate =2010-04-22}}</ref>
 
   
Miller was also an indirect participant in one of the most important trades in NHL history. Almost a year prior to the 1989 NHL Entry Draft the Edmonton Oilers traded "The Great One" [[Wayne Gretzky]], along with [[Marty McSorley]] and [[Mike Krushelnyski]], to the Los Angeles Kings for [[Jimmy Carson]], [[Martin Gelinas]], $15&nbsp;million in cash, and the Kings' first-round draft picks in [[1989 NHL Entry Draft|1989]], [[1991 NHL Entry Draft|1991]], and [[1993 NHL Entry Draft|1993]]. The Oilers later traded their 1989 first-round draft pick to the [[New Jersey Devils]] who drafted Miller 18th overall in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft.<ref name="loh"/>
+
Despite that when Miller turned pro in 1991 he could not crack the Devils' lineup. In 1995-96 he went to Europe and played some games in [[Germany]] and [[Finland]]. He came back in mid-season to play for the [[Peoria Riverman]] and then played the next season for the [[San Antonio Dragons]].
   
He was assigned to the [[American Hockey League]] for the [[Utica Devils]] and then the [[Albany River Rats]]. In three seasons, Miller played just six NHL games for New Jersey and failed to register a point. After a season with the [[Adirondack Red Wings]], Miller moved to Europe with a spell in [[Finland]]'s [[SM-liiga]] with [[HPK]] and in [[Germany]]'s [[Deutsche Eishockey Liga]] with [[Kaufbeurer Adler]] before returning to the United States in the [[International Hockey League (1945–2001)|International Hockey League]] with the [[Peoria Rivermen (IHL)|Peoria Rivermen]] and the [[San Antonio Dragons]].<ref name=loh/>
+
Miller did not get any interest from the [[NHL]] so he returned to Europe.
   
In 1996, Miller returned to Germany, spending one season with [[DEG Metro Stars|Düsseldorfer EG]] before moving to the [[Thomas Sabo Ice Tigers|Nürnberg Ice Tigers]] where he spent four seasons. He spent one more season in the DEL with the [[Hamburg Freezers]]<ref>{{cite web |url= http://www.hockey-reference.com/players/m/milleja03.html |title = Jason Miller |publisher = Hockey Reference.com| accessdate =2010-04-22}}</ref> before dropping down to the [[2nd Bundesliga (ice hockey)|2nd Bundesliga]] and signing with the [[Schwenningen Wild Wings]]. He then spent four seasons with [[EV Eisbären Regensburg]] before joining [[Dresdner Eislöwen]] in 2008.<ref>{{cite web |url= http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=de&u=http://www.eishockey.info/eishockey/WebApp%3Fcmd%3DdisplayArtikelSeite%26artikel%3D17952&ei=jo_QS5vmA8L88AbmksCaDw&sa=X&oi=translate&ct=result&resnum=4&ved=0CA0Q7gEwAzgK&prev=/search%3Fq%3D%2522Jason%2BMiller%2522%2BDresden%2BIce%2BLions%2Bhockey%26start%3D10%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26sa%3DN%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26channel%3Ds |title = Jason Miller rushes for Dresden |publisher = .EIS Hockey.info| accessdate =2010-04-2010}}</ref> after Regensburg withdrew from the league due to financial difficulties.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.esbg.de/|title=Nach Regensburg muss auch Essen Insolvenz anmelden (in German)|publisher=ESBG|date=2008-04-15|accessdate=2008-04-16}}</ref> During his second season with Dresdner, with the team slumping and in need for injury replacements, Miller was released from his contract on January 25, 2010.<ref>{{cite web | url = http://www.eisloewen.de/aktuelles/einzelansicht/article/jason-miller-und-stefan-mann-freigestellt.html?tx_ttnews<!--[-->backPid<!--]-->=12&cHash=77cd9829c2 | title = Jason Miller and Stefan Mann released as free agents | publisher = ''eislowen.de'' | date = 2010-01-25 | accessdate = 2010-07-28| language = German}}</ref>
