Sabres' Miller inducted into Michigan State Hall of Fame; Hank Bullough, too

By John Vogl

Ryan Miller made a quick departure from Buffalo after his first practice of training camp. The goaltender had a memorable reason.

Michigan State has inducted its highly decorated alumnus into its athletic Hall of Fame. The ceremony was Thursday night in East Lansing, Mich.

"Great to be back on campus at MSU," Miller wrote on his Twitter account. "Very honored to be inducted into the athletic hall of fame along with my cousin Kip. #GoGreen"

Miller won the Hobey Baker with the Spartans in 2001 and was a two-time All-American. Along with Kip, who also played hockey, Miller was joined in the Hall by former Buffalo Bills coach Henry "Hank" Bullough, Morris Peterson (basketball) and Jenna Wrobel (volleyball).

Miller is not taking part in the Sabres' practices today. They began at 7:50 a.m. Team owner Terry Pegula is in attendance, so there is likely a team function later, hence the early start time.

Here is the Michigan State news release on the class and its feature on Miller.
