BREAKING: Boston Bruins sign former Coyotes CONTROVERSIAL draft pick - Fans NOT happy

Back at the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, the Arizona Coyotes drafted young Mitchell Miller in the 4th round of the draft and shortly after they ended up rescinding their draft pick after it came up that he had bullied someone in grade 8.

#NHLBruins have signed former #Yotes draft pick Mitchell Miller to an entry-level contract.

Arizona renounced Miller's selection after it came to light that he heinously bullied an intellectually disabled child while in 8th grade.

Reminder of the facts: Miller and another teen were were convicted in juvenile court of bullying and abusing Isaiah Meyer-Crothers, a Black and disabled classmate. Miller repeatedly used racial slurs and forced Meyer-Crothers to lick a lollipop he smeared inside a urinal.







Miller has developed into a great offensive defenceman in the USHL, and it looks like the Bruins feel like he has matured enough from his former grade 8 bully days and deserves another chance.
