After NHL commissioner Gary Bettman released a statement yesterday claiming Mitchell Miller was ineligible, Miller's agency, O2K Sports Management, countered with a few words of their own defending the 20-year-old defenseman.

In the statement, the agency outlines the progress the Ohio native has made to improve himself. By the looks of it, Miller has been volunteering with multiple organizations working to improve diversity, equality, and inclusion. Although this seems like Miller is taking the proper steps in the process, many fans question whether the work was by choice or required as part of the court's decision.
Throughout the message, O2K Sports Management claims they would not have agreed to represent Miller without deliberate research. As it stands, it looks as though they have seen progress in their client within local community projects and volunteer work that has shown he is committed to making things right.
In the closing remarks, the agency stated they believe in counselling and not cancelling. This entails believing that Miller deserves a second chance, as his work of accountability and extra work to understand his mistakes have earned him another shot.
Only time will tell if anything comes from this message on Miller's behalf. Bettman mentioned yesterday he would have to see numerous changes and understand the situation better to shift the current stance on Miller. With this statement, the question now is whether Bettman reconsiders the possibility of eligibility.
The move by the Bruins is still questionable, but the league now faces a conundrum. On one hand, people value that Miller has attempted to make amends with the victim's family, volunteered, and bettered himself before trying to revamp his professional career. On the other hand, some fans believe his volunteering was more forced or a requirement to try to rehabilitate his image than out of the goodness of his heart, and there was little to no personal effort taken to better the situation on Miller's behalf.
It should be interesting to see how the league responds to this new information, but for now, Miller remains ineligible for the NHL.
