Warren Frederick Miller (born June 15, 1953 in St. Paul, Minnesota) is an American former professional ice hockey player. After playing for South St. Paul High School in Minnesota, Miller enrolled at the University of Minnesota where he had a four-year collegiate career. Miller helped the Golden Gophers to two NCAA championship titles in his sophomore and senior years in 1974 and 1976. He played 262 games in the National Hockey League and 238 games in the World Hockey Association between 1977 and 1983. He played for the Calgary Cowboys, Edmonton Oilers, Quebec Nordiques, New York Rangers, and Hartford Whalers.

Miller was chosen 241st overall by the New York Rangers in the 1974 NHL Amateur Draft and 132nd overall by the Vancouver Blazers in the 1974 WHA Amateur Draft. After leaving the University of Minnesota, Miller opted to join the Calgary Cowboys (the relocated Blazers) and was a regular in the 1976-77 season.

After the Cowboys folded in 1977, Miller went around the World Hockey Association (WHA) for two seasons, playing for the Edmonton Oilers, Quebec Nordiques, and the New England Whalers. When the WHA merged into the NHL in 1979, the Rangers reclaimed Miller. He played a full season for New York in 1979-80.

In 1980 he was traded to the Hartford Whalers and in 1980-81 enjoyed his best NHL season with 22 goals and 22 assists. He played another two seasons for the Whalers before retiring in 1983.
