Miller is the only returning forward for Team USA and Chris Peters writes at the United States of Hockey that because of that his role will be crucial and that he should be a big factor in whatever Team USA does.
Peters writes that Miller is likely to wear a letter for Team USA and praised his vision, ability to create time and space, strength speed and tenacity.
When ranking the Rangers top prospects, both Leslie Treff at Hockey’s Future and Corey Pronman at Puck Prospectus ranked JT Miller in the top three, but Treff put him at two and Pronman put him at three.
Pronman says of Miller, “his hockey sense and work ethic stand out” and that Miller can flash high end playmaking skills to go along with a strong two-way game.
He thinks that Miller can possibly be an above-average second line center.
Treff writes that Miller, with the strength that he added, could become a big force in front of the net as he continues to develop with the Whale.
