BREAKING: Boston Bruins DROP Mitchell Miller after 2 days - Terminating contract (shocking details revealed)

If for some reason you missed all the news these last 2 days, on Friday the Boston Bruins shocked the hockey world signing Mitchell Miller to an NHL contract. Miller was a previous draft pick of the Arizona Coyotes who had the pick rescinded when they found out about his bullying past.

The Bruins made an announcement that they looked into Miller and were under the impression he made some significant life changes, but unfortunately for the team, they were all lies.

Today Miller's agent stated that his client was working with some organizations to work towards fixing what he had done, but it turned out to be a lie after the organizations themselves came out and stated that they've never worked with Miller.




Sportsnet's Chris Johnston made the announcement that the Boston Bruins chose to terminate Miller's contract:

The #bruins have officially parted ways with Mitchell Miller. What a disaster that signing was for them.



Ever since the signing, the Bruins have been under fire from fans and players from their own team over the signing:

Just recently, Boston Bruins President Cam Neely made the following statement:

Today the Boston Bruins have decided to part ways with Mitchell Miller, effective immediately.

The decision to sign this young man was made after careful consideration of the facts as we were aware of them: that at 14-years-old he made a poor decision that led to a juvenile conviction. We understood this to be an isolated incident and that he had taken meaningful action to reform and was committed to ongoing personal development. Based on that understanding we offered him a contract.

Based on new information, we believe it is the best decision at this time to rescind the opportunity for Mitchell Miller to represent the Boston Bruins. We hope that he continues to work with professionals and programs to further his education and personal growth.

We owe it to our fans, players, staff, partners and community to make sure that our practices and protocols are in keeping with the ethos that we demand from ourselves and as an organization. As such, we will be reevaluating our internal processes for vetting individuals who wish to earn the privilege of playing in the National Hockey League for the Boston Bruins.

We are sorry that this decision has overshadowed the incredible work the members of our organization do to support diversity and inclusion efforts. We will continue to stand against bullying and racism in all of its forms.

To Isaiah and his family, my deepest apologies if this signing made you and other victims feel unseen and unheard. We apologize for the deep hurt and impact we have caused.

Finally, as a father, I think there is a lesson to be learned here for other young people. Be mindful of careless behaviors and going with the group mentality of hurting others. The repercussions can be felt for a lifetime.
