Marvin Cupper;  Sean KuralyEarly this morning, JT Miller had two assists as Team USA beat Slovakia 9-3 in the World Junior Championships.

Miller was 14 of 18 on faceoffs, with three shots on goal and a plus two rating.

Chris Peters writes at the United States of Hockey that Miller played his best game of the tournament today and it was the exact kind of game that he needed to have heading into the medal round. He said that this was the version of Miller that Team USA was expecting to have all tournament, “he clicked better on the power play and got back to getting pucks to the net and utilizing his speed instead of relying on his skill.”

In an interview with Hockey’s Future, Miller says that the games at the WJC remind him of playing in the AHL and he feels he has picked up a step playing in this tournament.
