For overage forward David Miller, his return to the Ontario Hockey League team he started his career with is off to a good start.
After being held off the scoresheet in the season opener on Friday, Miller scored three times and assisted on another goal to help the Soo Greyhounds to an 8-5 victory over the Oshawa Generals Saturday night at the Essar Centre.
A pair of power play goals by Miller in the third period helped seal the win for the Greyhounds.
“It feels pretty good to produce like that,” Miller said. “The guys really helped me produce tonight. They were moving the puck well and we capitalized on the power play.”
Miller said the Greyhounds system suits his style of play and the opportunity to return to the city was a welcome one.
“The Soo feels like I’m coming back home,” Miller said. “I feel comfortable here.”
Greyhounds Coach Drew Bannister credited the veteran forward.
“He competed really hard and obviously he got rewarded with the goals,” Bannister said. “He was hard in front of the net.”
Bobby MacIntyre added two goals and three assists while defenceman Conor Timmins assisted on four goals for the Greyhounds. Morgan Frost and Medric Mercier added a goal and an assist each to round out the Greyhounds scoring.
