In the Daily News, Pat Leonard tracked down one of JT Miller’s old coaches and spoke with him about the way JT Miller plays and approaches the game of hockey.
Miller’s former coach, Chris Stern, says that Miller plays the exact same way if the score is tied, his team is winning or his team is losing.
Stern said that Miller’s passion was one of the things he liked the most about Miller and Gordie Clark, Rangers Director of Player Personnel, said that he wears his heart on his sleeve.
Last night against the Habs, Miller had one shot, three hits, was 2-0 on faceoffs and played a career high 16:15.
Miller had five shifts in the first (5:56), five in the second (5:30) and six in the third (4:49).
