#BearTracks LA

BostonBruins.com - #BearTracks is back! For the past few summers, the BostonBruins.com crew has driven and flown across the country, and up north to Canada to visit the Bruins in their hometowns during the offseason.

The trips have taken us to see Patrice Bergeron in Quebec City, Brad Marchand in Halifax, Gregory Campebll in Tillsonburg, Adam McQuaid in P.E.I., and Milan Lucic in Vancouver, among other players and stops along the way.

The Bruins have shared their hometowns and their stories with fans, of who they were when they were younger and the places that shaped them, long before they wore the Black and Gold.

The visits have helped fill the time during those long summer, offseason months, when all of the training is done away from cameras and away from Boston.

In the summer of 2014, #BearTracks is taking us to a place where we usually only see the inside of the Staples Center: Los Angeles.

Defenseman Kevan Miller grew up in Santa Clarita, California and lived in LA until he was 16, when he left to attend Berkshire School in Western Massachusetts.

The 26-year-old Miller saw his NHL dream realized just this past season, when he made his debut with the Bruins on November 21, 2013 against St. Louis.

The blueliner, who spent two full seasons with Providence in the AHL after a four-year college career with the University of Vermont, found himself in a regular NHL role when Dennis Seidenberg was lost for the season with his ACL/MCL injury.

Miller originally signed with Boston as an undrafted free agent in October of 2011. On January 21, 2014, after a month playing up with the big club, the Bruins signed him to a two-year, one-way contract.

It came the day after Boston defeated the LA Kings 3-2 at TD Garden.

Over the course of the next few days, BostonBruins.com will get an inside look at how a kid from California fell in love with hockey and paved his way to the NHL.

Stay tuned to BostonBruins.com, the Bruins' Mobile App and on Twitter @NHLBruins as we head to Los Angeles, following the hashtag #BearTracks.
