Megan Miller might have ended up as Boston College women’s hockey’s starting goalie next season. She has taken herself out of the running, and out of the program.

Sources: Boston College goaltender Megan Miller to transfer to Wisconsin (Bucky’s 5th Quarter, Andy Johnson)

On Thursday, sources confirmed to the article’s source (lots of sourcing) that Megan Miller, previously the backup behind the now-graduated senior goaltender Corinne Boyles, will transfer to Wisconsin to play for the Badgers.

The practical outcome of this is that Boston College is now down two goalies for next season as opposed to the one we expected. The only other goalie the Eagles will have on the roster from last season was the third-string place holder, sophomore Taylor Blake of British Columbia. Short of any can’t-miss incoming recruits swooping in and getting the job for October, Blake may have just inherited the position.

There is no immediate rationale available to us as to why Megan Miller left. She knows why, and frankly, it’s her business. To paraphrase the Borg Collective, speculation is irrelevant.

We wish Megan the best in her future as she continues her collegiate hockey career elsewhere.
