Ryan Dean Miller is an American who used to play goalie for the Buffalo Sabres in the National Hockey League for 18 seasons. Miller was taken by the Buffalo Sabres with the 138th pick in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. He won the Vezina Trophy for being the best goalie in the league in 2010.
Ryan Miller played his way to the top of the Buffalo Sabres’ record books, and now his number hangs at KeyBank Center with those of the team’s best players. The goalie’s No. 30 was raised to the rafters on Thursday,19 January 2023, making him the eighth Sabres player to get this honor. He also became the 43rd person to be inducted into the Buffalo Sabres Hall of Fame.
Miller said that seeing his number go to the top of the arena was a great feeling. His wife, Noureen DeWulf, his 7-year-old son Bodhi, his 9-month-old daughter Kaia, his parents, Dean and Teresa, his brothers Drew and Bryce, and his sister, Brynn, all joined him on the ice.
“I’m glad that my family was able to come. Bodhi is old enough to understand everything. You can only tell a child so many stories about family history before you have to show them where it really happened. Kaia made it, which makes me proud of her. Just a baby’s first step. But the fact that Noureen and I are back here and our friends and family can see her and see where I am in my life right now is also a big part of our lives. We made some great memories and friends.”
This naturally raises questions about his family life, especially his wife. Read on to know everything about their personal life.
