Miele Signs With Phoenix
It wasn’t quite “The Decision”, version 2, ala LeBron James, but former RedHawk and current Hobey Baker finalist Andy Miele has made his choice and signed with…the Phoenix Coyotes. Several teams had reportedly been working to sign the Grosse Point Woods, MI native, but sources say Miele’s final five teams included Anaheim, Dallas, Los Angeles, Phoenix, and New Jersey.
His 71 points and 47 assists this season were tops in Division I hockey and Miele became the first Miami player to crack the 60-point mark since Randy Robitaille accomplished the feat during the 1996-97 season. He was also named the RBC Player of the Year and received First-Team All-CCHA Honors.
