Andrew Miller Commits to Framingham State
Framingham State will be the next stop in the hockey playing career of Worcester Railers forward Andrew Miller, who committed to the Rams in March.
Miller credits the advice and direction he got from the Railers JHC coaching staff as a key to his move on to the collegiate hockey ranks.
“Playing for the Worcester Railers this year was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life,” Miller said. “Although our record wasn’t the greatest, I learned so many things on and off the ice that will live on with me throughout my collegiate experience as well as throughout life. I honestly wouldn’t be anything close to the player I am today without the advice of our General Manager Mike Addesa, coach James Mello, coach Brian Addesa and the rest of the Railers staff.”

The right-hand shooting forward scored 11 goals and 11 assists in 39 EHL games with the Railers and was an excellent shorthanded player with the Railers. In a stint with Worcester’s EHLP team, recovering from a shoulder injury, Andrew scored six goals in seven games and was able to regain his EHL conditioning.
”Andrew Miller is a special individual who has only scratched the surface on his hockey potential,” said Mello. “Miller is a very good skater, possesses very good hand skills and he has very good on ice instincts, that are all driven by his great sense of determination. He has shown tremendous development over the course of this season and is committed to doing the things that are required of players who want to excel at the college level. In order to have success at any level, you need a group of guys who are more focused on serving their teammates than they are themselves. Andrew embodies the team-first mentality and is well respected by his teammates.”

Prior to junior hockey, Miller was key factor in Waltham High’s Massachusetts Division 1 state championship run in 2018.
“His dedication to teammates and the game of hockey will allow him to continue to develop into a great four-year player at the NCAA level, Mello said. “This dedication has earned Andrew his commitment to continue playing hockey at Framingham State University. The Railers organization could not be more proud of this accomplishment.
“I want to thank our General Manager Mike Addesa on the extra effort he put in to find the right match as a student and a hockey player in Framingham State. I am really looking forward to the next four years of my life,” said Miller.
