Following an investigation, the Coyotes found that there were more bullying incidents involving Miller, which caused them to cut ties with the player. Miller was the Coyotes fourth-round draft pick in the 2020 NHL Draft.
“I have been closely monitoring the situation concerning men’s hockey student-athlete Mitchell Miller, who was involved in a situation as a youth in 2016,” North Dakota President Andrew Armacost said in a statement. “We expect our students to live by our values in the classroom, in the community, and when representing the University on the field of play. After much consideration and discussions with Mitchell, the Miller family, our Athletics Director, Bill Chaves, and Coach Brad Berry, I have decided that the best course of action for Mitchell and the University is that he no longer be a member of the UND men’s hockey program.
“Mitchell may remain a student at UND and we will continue to support his future intellectual and interpersonal growth. We wish Mitchell well in whatever path he chooses in his future endeavors. Lastly, I want to thank Coach Berry and Athletics Director Chaves for working with me, as we navigated through this difficult decision together, and for working with Mitchell and his family.”
It is not clear what Miller will do next. These allegations will haunt Miller for some time, as other schools and programs may not be willing to work with him, because of them.
Miller last played for the Tri-City Storm in the USHL during the 2019-20 season. He had eight goals and 25 assists for 33 points in 44 games.
Before joining the Tri-City Storm, he also played two seasons for the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders from 2017-2019. With the RoughRiders, Miller had four goals and 13 assists with 17 points in 50 games.
