Joseph Anthony "Joe" Miller (October 6, 1900 in Morrisburg, Ontario – August 12, 1963) was a Canadian ice hockey goaltender for the New York Americans, New York Rangers, Pittsburgh Pirates and the Philadelphia Quakers.

Joe Miller was a playing for the New York Americans in 1928 when by an interesting set of circumstances his Stanley Cup opportunity arose. With the Americans out of the playoffs he had gone to the Stanley Cup finals games between the New York Rangers and the Montreal Maroons. At the time NHL teams only carried 1 goaltender so when the Rangers netminder Lorne Chabot was injured the Rangers coach and General manager Lester Patrick asked the Americans and the Maroons for permission to use Miller for the remainer of the series. The American agreed but Montreal Maroons head coach Eddie Gerard forced Lester Patrick to play goal for the rest of that game. After the game finished Lester Patrick when through formal channels with the NHL and got Joe Miller on a short term loan from the New York Americans. Miller played 3 games for the Rangers and won the 1928 Stanley Cup for the New York.

He was returned to the Americans after the playoffs. He later played for the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Philadelphia Quakers.
