Free agency opens: PWHL Toronto re-signs forward Hannah Miller | CBC Sports

PWHL Toronto has re-signed forward Hannah Miller to a one-year deal, bringing back the team’s fourth-leading scorer last season.

Miller, who Toronto drafted in the 13th round of the 2023 draft, registered 14 points in 23 games.

“Hannah was a key part of our team’s success in the inaugural season,” Toronto GM Gina Kingsbury said in a statement. “She is a strong power forward that plays a 200-foot game. We are happy to have her sign an extension and we look forward to her continued impact on PWHL Toronto.”

The league has agreed with the players’ union to not release specific salary amounts.

From North Vancouver, 28-year-old Miller represented China at the 2022 Olympics in Beijing.

She played for the KRS Vanke Rays in the defunct Canadian Women’s Hockey League and the Zhenskaya Hockey League (ZhHL) in Russia, as well as for Djurg årdens IF in the Swedish Women’s Hockey League (SDHL), before returning to North America last season.

The window is now open for PWHL teams to sign draft picks and free agents from other teams. GMs have been able to re-sign players from last year’s roster since June 1.

Miller was one of the biggest free-agent names on the market going into Friday, along with Ottawa forwards Daryl Watts and Kateřina Mrázová, Minnesota forward Michela Cava and Boston defender Kaleigh Fratkin, among others.

Training camps are expected to open in November for the next PWHL season, which will begin toward the end of the year.
