Sabres ship Miller to Blues

Buffalo, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Ryan Miller's decade-long tenure with the Buffalo Sabres has come to an abrupt end, as the former Vezina Trophy recipient has been dealt to the St. Louis Blues as part of a blockbuster five-player trade.

In addition to Miller, Buffalo's franchise leader in wins, the Sabres sent captain Steve Ott to the Blues. St. Louis parted ways with starting goaltender Jaroslav Halak, forward Chris Stewart and prospect William Carrier.

The Sabres also obtained a pair of draft choices in the swap, St. Louis' first-rounder in 2015 and a conditional third-round selection in 2016.

Miller and Ott, both unrestricted free agents at season's end, were both scratched from the lineup moments prior to Friday's game with San Jose. The pair are scheduled to join the Blues in Phoenix for the team's matchup with the Coyotes on Sunday.
