The province of Manitoba has a long history of top talent spilling out of its hockey backyard. Players such as Cam Barker, Jonathon Toews and more recently Michael St. Croix have all had impressive minor hockey careers and in Barker and Toews case NHL careers, St. Croix sure to follow.
The next star on the rise is a 5'11 184lb forward from Thompson, MB named Dallas Miller. Dallas was born in Thompson, MB then moved to Cranberry Portage, then the family moved back to Thompson, MB and Dallas began playing hockey at age 8. Then the family relocated to Sault St. Marie, ONT, once again back to Thompson and finally to Winnipeg, MB once it was obvious Dallas had immense hockey skills to further his career.
Last season, in Winnipeg, Dallas played age advanced hockey with the Winnipeg Sharks in the Winnipeg Bantam2 league. He was one of the top players despite been the youngest player in the league scoring 33 goals in just 21 games and his 45 points placed him just 3 point behind the team leader despite playing 9 fewer games. Dallas's season was shortened due to a broken Collorbone suffored at a tournament in Edmonton.
Dallas is already focusing on next season and has high expectations playing in the top Bantam league, age advanced once again. "My goals are to win the scoreing race for the leauge, and to try and win the city championship." I'm playing bantam age advanced with the 14 year olds. Beyond this season Dallas aspires to make the NHL and be a team captain some day. His favorite player is Alex Ovechkin.
Definitely a player to watch for the future in Manitoba.
