Detroit Red Wings left winger Drew Miller has signed a contract to play for the Braehead Clan of the Elite Ice Hockey League in the United Kingdom.

Red Wings left winger Drew Miller has signed with the Braehead Clan of Scotland. The Clan play in the Elite Ice Hockey League.

Miller is expected to begin play in the Elite Ice Hockey League, the top professional league in the United Kingdom, this weekend as the Braehead Clan square off with the Dundee Stars and Edinburgh Capitals. Miller will be introduced as a member of the Clan Wednesday.

In a statement from the official Baehead Clan website, a spokesman said, "Not only is this great for the team and the fans, but it is also a fantastic opportunity for the players to train and play in games with a guy who is a current NHL star."

The 28-year-old Miller scored 14 goals in 80 games for the Detroit Red Wings last season, but, like every other NHL player, found himself without a job after the lockout went into effect. In his five-year NHL career, Miller had played for the Anaheim Ducks and Tampa Bay Lightning before joining the Red Wings for the past three seasons.
