Miller and Campbell Accept Qualifying Offers

August 12, 2005

Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier announced today that a pair of restricted free agents -- goaltender Ryan Miller and defenseman Brian Campbell -- have both accepted one-year qualifying offers from the club.

The 25-year-old Miller was named an American Hockey League First Team All-Star last season with the Rochester Americans, and received the "Baz" Bastien award as the league's Outstanding Goalie. Miller led the AHL in wins with 41, becoming the first AHL goalie since Gerry Cheevers in 1964-65 to win at least 40 games in a season. He also set a Rochester team record with eight shutouts.

A fifth-round draft pick of the Sabres in 1999, Miller has played in 18 career games with Buffalo, posting a record of 6-11-1 with one shutout.

Miller became just the second goalie in NCAA history to win the Hobey Baker Award as the top player in college hockey while playing at Michigan State in 2000-01. He is the NCAA career leader in shutouts (26) and save percentage (940), and also holds the CCHA record for most shutouts in a season with 10.

Campbell, 26, was Buffalo's sixth-round choice in the 1997 Entry Draft. He has played in 167 games for Buffalo over the past five seasons, scoring nine goals and 32 assists for 41 career points. During 2004-05, Campbell played with Jokerit Helsinki in Finland, scoring 12 goals and 13 assists in 44 regular season games, and seven points (3g, 4a) in 12 playoff games.

As a member of the Memorial Cup champion Ottawa 67's in 1998-99, Campbell was named the Canadian Hockey League's Player of the Year as he led all OHL defensemen in scoring with 87 points (12g, 75a) in 62 games.
