Miele’s Five-Point Night leads Pirates past Monarchs, Earns Promotion


Well, that didn’t take long.

Former Miami stand out and Hobey Baker Memorial Award winner, Andy Miele, registered a gigantic night offensively with 2-3-5 as his Portland Pirates defeated the Manchester Monarchs 5-3 on Wednesday night.

Miele, the only Hobey Baker Award winner in Miami hockey history, now has a season line of 3-4-7 in just four games with AHL Portland. And, earlier today, his performance was more than enough to earn him a quick promotion to the Pirates NHL parent club, the Phoenix Coyotes, with whom Miele signed a pro contract last spring. Presumably, Miele will suit up for his first NHL regular season game on Sunday night when the offensively challenged Coyotes (2-3-1) will face the Anaheim Ducks (4-1) at the Pond.

Congratulations, again, Andy! And, best of luck in your NHL debut — whenever that may be!
