Canucks won’t trade goaltender Ryan Miller ahead of deadline

Canucks insider John Garrett joins Dan Murphy to discuss the news that Ryan Miller will stay put in Vancouver and speculate on what’s next for the club before the 3pm ET trade deadline.

The Vancouver Canucks won’t be moving goaltender Ryan Miller ahead of Wednesday’s 3 p.m. ET trade deadline, according to Sportsnet’s John Shannon.

Miller, who will be a free agent at the end of the season, was at the centre of trade speculation in the days leading up to the deadline. The Los Angeles Kings were said to be a suitor before the team acquired netminder Ben Bishop to pair with incumbent Jonathan Quick.

The 36-year-old Miller is in the final season of a three-year, $18-million deal, which includes a clause that lists five teams he can be moved to.

Miller is 16-18 with a 2.66 goals-against average and .915 save percentage in 39 games this season. Backup Jacob Markstrom is 10-11 with a 2.63 goals against and .910 save percentage.
