Buffalo Sabres goaltender, Ryan Miller played for the Blackhawks as an 8-year old.  It was with the Blackhawks that he made his decision to play as a goaltender in the early '90s.  And while we can't claim any responsibility for his advancement into the NHL, we can say we are just proud that the star goaltender made his career choice while wearing a Santa Clara Blackhawks jersey.

Viktor started with the Blackhawks as a mite in 1995 and continued on until his bantam year in 2000.  From that point he moved with his family to Russia where he played his junior hockey and eventually for his grandfather's club, Severstal Cherepovets.  His grandfather, whom Viktor shares the same name, is the legendary Soviet coach.
