This past week Anaheim Ducks goalie Ryan Miller and his wife Noureen DeWulf appeared on NBCSN’s show “Hockey At Home”.

Kathryn Tappen and David Amber host the show with various couples from the NHL on each episode. When Ryan and his wife were on the show some of the topics discussed included what they were doing at home to stay busy, who is more recognizable in Los Angeles, and their son Bodhi.

Eventually, the topic of whether Miller would retire was asked during the show. Miller didn’t give a definitive answer if he was going to retire or not. He said he was still undecided at this point in time, but that he could return next season if he can still play California.

Speculation grew that Miller would retire after this season when he had two consecutive road starts back in the month of February. He started in Anaheim’s 5-4 overtime loss to Toronto and then two days later started against his former team the Buffalo Sabres. Miller spent 10 1/2 seasons with the Sabres and the contest was the last time the Ducks would play in Buffalo for the season.

If Miller does retire, then this past year will have been his 17th season in the NHL. He is the all-time win leader among American-born NHL goalies with 387 wins. Miller is second in NHL history in terms of shootout wins with 59. Henrik Lundqvist holds the records with 61 wins.

Miller’s final stats would include a 387-281-86 record, a 2.61 GAA, and .915 SV%. He also has 44 shutouts.

On our recent hockey podcast, we discussed how Miller’s retiring could impact the Ducks he decides to hang them up after this season. Click below to listen or visit us at PodomaticSpreaker, or YouTube.
