In the Ottawa Sun, Bruce Garrioch writes that the Rangers are quietly shopping JT Miller to see if they can get some established players before Sunday’s draft.
He writes that in the 26 games that Miller played for the Rangers this season he “didn’t live up to expectations.”
This past season, Miller, 20, played for the Whale, the Rangers and won a gold medal for Team USA at the World Juniors.
Miller had 23 points in 42 games for the Whale, four points in 26 games for the Rangers and 9 points in 7 games for Team USA.
THIS SECTION is all about Miller.
Adam Rotter: The idea of Miller, as a rookie and 19 years old, not living up to expectations is a little ridiculous. John Tortorella loved Miller for a time before Miller’s game started to slip and he hurt his wrist. The Rangers may just be trying to see what kind of market there is for Miller and if they can fill a hole on the roster right now.
