NEWS: JT Miller Signs With Plymouth

Chris Johnston tweets that 2011 first round pick JT Miller has signed on to play with the Plymouth Whalers of the OHL.

Miller signed an entry-level deal with the Rangers yesterday.

He said that he is excited to get to Plymouth and described himself as “a big forward who likes to use my speed to my advantage. I try to get pucks to the net and be in front of the net as much as possible.”

Miller can play with Plymouth this season, and then with the Whale next season, if the Rangers think that he is ready. His contract will slide and won’t take any years off as long as he doesn’t play 10 games in the NHL.

Miller was originally a fifth round pick of the Whalers in the 2009 OHL draft.
