Buffalo Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller has returned to practice for the first time since sustaining a concussion and neck injury against the Boston Bruins, NHL.com reports.

Miller’s injury occurred Nov. 12 when 6’3”, 228-pound Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic checked the 6’2”, 175-pound goaltender as he played the puck outside of the crease.

Miller missed the past eight games due to the injury and the Sabres have struggled, posting a 3-4-1 record without the 2010 Vezina Trophy winner.
