NEWARK — The New Jersey Devils traded defenseman Colin Miller to the Winnipeg Jets.

In exchange, the Devils are receiving a 2026 fourth-round pick.

New Jersey and Winnipeg connected on another deal earlier in the day that sent Tyler Toffoli to the Jets in exchange for a 2025 second-round and 2024 third-round pick. New Jersey is retaining 50% of Toffoli’s contract. The deal for Miller is their second of the day.

The Devils acquired Miller this summer from the Dallas Stars with one year remaining on his contract that holds a $1.85 million cap hit. The veteran defenseman has four goals and eight points in 41 games for the Devils this season.

Miller took warmups on Thursday night with New Jersey, however, interim head coach Travis Green scratched the veteran defenseman in favor of rookie Simon Nemec.

It was reported earlier on Friday that New Jersey was taking calls on both Miller and Brendan Smith.

The trade for Miller came down to the wire with just minutes remaining before Friday’s 3 P.M. deadline.

Earlier in the day, the Devils acquired goaltender Jake Allen from the Montreal Canadiens. General manager Tom Fitzgerald certainly took a buyer & sellers approach at the 2024 NHL Trade Deadline while his teams playoff hopes — although slim — are still alive.
