In 2020, the Arizona Coyotes used a fourth-round pick to selected American defenceman Mitchell Miller, who was playing in the USHL. But shortly after the draft, some disturbing information came out about Miller's past.

While in middle school in 2016, Miller bullied a classmate who had developmental disabilities, which forced the Coyotes to revoke the pick, making him a free agent.

Last Fall, the Boston Bruins decided to sign Miller to an entry-level contract, which was met with heavy criticism. Miller ended up never playing for the Bruins or their AHL affiliate and officially terminated his contract a couple of weeks ago.

On Wednesday, it was revealed that Slovak Extraliga club HK 32 Liptovsky Mikulas have signed Miller for the 2023-24 season.


Many are still extremely frustrated that Miller continues to get opportunities to play professional hockey, especially when he reportedly hasn't apologized to the classmate he bullied seven years ago.
