Miller has been scratched the past two games.

Miller played in two games after being called up last Wednesday, because of Chris Kreider’s injury, and had 3 shots on goal and played 13:19 against Philly and 9:57 against Calgary.

Alain Vigneault said that he wasn’t happy with Miller’s second period against Calgary.

NEW YORK, April 2, 2014 New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has assigned forward J.T. Miller to the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Miller, 20, skated in two games with the Rangers since his recall from Hartford on March 26th. He has registered three goals and three assists for six points, along with 18 penalty minutes in 30 games with the Rangers this season. Miller has tallied three points (one goal, two assists), along with a plus-one rating in his last seven NHL games.

The East Palestine, Ohio native returns to Hartford where he has recorded 12 goals and 25 assists for 37 points, along with a plus-13 rating in 35 AHL games this season. He ranked second on the team in points, third in assists, fifth in goals, and was tied for first in plus/minus rating at the time of his recall.

Miller was originally selected by the Rangers as a first round choice, 15th overall, in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.




I bet the kid would have been better off heading to North Dakota instead of heading to junior out of the draft.  The way it looks now maybe 2-3 year at ND would have suited him better than 1 year of junior and 2 years in the AHL shuffling back and forth as a call up.
