In February, K’Andre Miller (Minnetonka, Minn./USAH NTDP) was profiled discussing his career growth in his second year as an NTDP player. “I kind of get down on myself every once in a while, so I have found more confidence in myself over this last year. This season, I have way more confidence going into games with the puck. I’m not really trying to rush my play — I’m way more confident” said Miller, who is committed to play at the University of Wisconsin. “I only have been playing D for a few years now. I think the biggest thing is having great defensive coaches teaching me a little more about the position — where I should be and where my stick should be — those type of things. I use the other guys for help since they have been playing the position way longer than me. I always ask questions of them and they have done a great job helping me develop my game as a defenseman.”
