The Boston Bruins made the decision to part ways with prospect Mitchell Miller just 2 days after signing him. The team making the announcement on Sunday after facing a fair share of backlash from their own players and the league alike. Bruins President Cam Neely had this to say:
"The decision to sign this young man was made after careful consideration of the facts as we were aware of them: That at 14 years old, he made a poor decision that led to a juvenile conviction. We understood this to be an isolated incident and that he had taken meaningful action to reform and was committed to ongoing personal development.

Based on new information, we believe it is the best decision at this time to rescind the opportunity for Mitchell Miller to represent the Boston Bruins."
