VANCOUVER - Ryan Miller wasnt ready face the Buffalo Sabres last season. Authentic Michael Grabner Jersey .After getting traded by the only NHL organization he had ever known, the veteran goalie was given the choice by the St. Louis Blues of facing his old team or watching the from the bench when the clubs met in early April.Miller chose the latter and instead started against the Philadelphia Flyers two days earlier.Now a member of the Vancouver Canucks, the 34-year-old will finally suit up against the franchise that drafted him when the Sabres visit Rogers Arena on Friday night.Ill pay special attention not to pass the puck towards the Buffalo symbol, Miller joked after Thursdays practice. Its going to be nice to see some of the faces over there. But part of hockey is having fun competing against your friends, former teammates, colleagues.This is a chance to play against a team and an organization that does mean a lot to me.A fifth-round pick back in 1999, Miller was the face of the Sabres for nine seasons and helped the team to the Eastern Conference final in both 2006 and 2007.A lot things to be proud of coming out of Buffalo, said Miller, who signed with the Canucks as a free agent in July. Disappointed we didnt achieve our goals there. We were close a couple times and pushing towards a Stanley Cup and we fell short and thats obviously frustrating.The group of guys I played with, that was a lot of fun.Vancouver captain Henrik Sedin, whose team is coming off a disappointing 4-0 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday, said the Canucks want to make sure their netminder has a memorable night.He spent a lot of years in Buffalo, said Sedin. For anyone coming back and playing their former team, even if its at home here, Im sure its a special night for him. Hes been so good for us so weve got to help him as much as we can.The Sabres have fallen on hard times in recent years and sit at the bottom of the NHL standings heading into Thursdays action.Miller said he keeps in touch with some people in the organization and feels the pain of a team in full rebuild mode.Its frustrating to not get the results when you put in the hard work. I know a lot of those guys on that team are proud and they work hard, he said. When youre not getting the results and people are talking about it theres that place where you can kind of go where you can get numb and you dont get as emotionally charged ... or you remind yourself (why you) play.I think last year I was getting a little bit numb for a stretch, but I reminded myself why I like to play and got re-energized by the challenge of just going out to play. I hope they find that energy and continue to play hard because they have a lot of talent on that team.Miller has found plenty of success so far this season with Vancouver, recording 23 of his teams 26 wins, and set a personal shutout streak of 200 minutes 45 seconds as the Canucks continue to battle for a Western Conference playoff spot.I identified myself for so long as a Sabre, said Miller. Its going to be a little bit strange, but I have aligned myself with this organization and the goals we have here. I identify myself now as proud to be a Canuck and working toward our goals here.Note: With a couple of injuries up front, the Canucks recalled forward Ronalds Kenins from the AHLs Utica Comets on Thursday.—Follow @JClipperton_CP on Twitter Authentic Wayne Gretzky Jersey .

The Panthers exercised the fifth-year option on Newtons contract, meaning the former No. 1 draft pick will be with the team at least through the end of the 2015 season. The team made the announcement Friday, after previously indicating it hoped to sign Newton to a long-term deal. Newton is slated to make $3.37 million this season and would receive $14.67 million in 2015 if he doesnt sign a contract extension before then. By exercising the option on Newtons rookie deal from 2011, the salary-cap strapped Panthers will have more time to work out a longer contract with the three-year NFL veteran and former Heisman Trophy winner. Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman did not return phone calls Friday seeking comment. Newton said earlier in thee week hes "absolutely fine" with the Panthers picking up the fifth year, but referred all contract talks to his agents and the Panthers front office.

Newton has started all 48 games during his three seasons with Carolina. Newton led the Panthers to a 12-4 record and the NFC South championship last year, completing a career-high 61.7 per cent of his passes with 24 touchdowns passing and six touchdowns rushing. The Panthers lost at home in the divisional playoffs to San Francisco. After that loss, Gettleman said he had no doubt he views Newton was the teams franchise quarterback. "He proved it this year," Gettleman said on Jan. 14. "He flat proved it."
