Miller commits to UCO

Nitehawks defenceman Andrew Miller has committed to play hockey for the NCAA Division III University of Central Oklahoma next season.

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks defenceman Andrew Miller has committed to play hockey for the NCAA Division III University of Central Oklahoma (UCO) next season.

The 20-year-old Trail product has been a standout for the Hawks all year, leading defencemen in scoring with nine goals and 14 assists in 37 games.

“It’s pretty exciting, and obviously the team is very proud of him,” said Nitehawks head coach and GM Terry Jones. “I think he’s a solid student, and he’s old enough to understand how the whole process of education works and see the importance of it.”

UCO Bronchos are the number 2 ranked team in the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) Div. 1 with a record of 21-4-1. The Bronchos trail number 1 ranked Arizona State, which, with Trail Smoke Eater Charlie Zuccarini commit, will transition to the NCAA Div. 1 over the next three years.

Miller will join former Kimberly Dynamiter Rylan Duley and Creston Valley ThunderCat Brandon Formosa on the Bronchos next season.

Miller has been out of the Beaver Valley line up since Jan. 2 when he sustained an upper body injury playing against the Revelstoke Grizzlies, but Jones expects the six-foot, 180-pound defenceman back by the end of the season.
