At the United States of Hockey, Chris Peters writes about the leading candidates to play for Team USA at the World Junior Championships this December in Ufa, Russia.
One of those players is JT Miller who would be one of three players to return from last year’s team.
Miller has two goals and four assists in 12 games for the Whale. He has registered at least one shot in 10 of 12 games this season as a rookie.
Peters says that the experience Miller is getting in Hartford is invaluable and “it might do Miller some good to get back into games against his peers and have a chance to play more of a featured role.”
