Read: JT Miller WJC Tournament Review/How He Plays “The Right Way”

IJT Millern the World Junior Championships, JT Miller had two goals and seven assists to finish in the top ten in tournament scoring.

After the game, Miller told Mike Morreale of NHL.com,”I started blacking out, my heart was pounding thru my chest; Don’t think I’ve been happier in my whole life”

Following the Gold Medal game against Sweden, Chris Peters wrote at the United States of Hockey that Miller wanted redemption after the seventh place finish Team USA had in 2012. He added that after a slow start to the tournament, Miller was “excellent” at the end of the tournament.

In his wrap up of the entire tournament, Peters wrote that Miller simplified his game after some early tournament struggles and started playing to his strengths. Those strengths, Peters says, are his vision, size and skill and his play in the second half of the tournament showed a glimpse of the kind of player he will be when he reaches the NHL.

JT MillerIn the NY Post, Larry Brooks writes that the plan is for the Rangers to keep JT Miller with the Whale even though training camp is expected to open in the next 7-10 days.

Brooks writes that if Miller continues to progress then the team won’t hesitate to call him up and inject him into the lineup.

He also notes that with the crunch of the schedule it is more likely that teams may replace struggling veterans with players from the AHL.

Bob McKenzie says that Miller is a player the Rangers are considering


Adam Rotter: Miller can play center and wing and is coming off a Gold Medal winning performance for Team USA. Miller is a guy who can play in the bottom six and focus on defense as he develops as a player. Since he was drafted he has drawn comparisons, in terms of style of play, to Ryan Kesler and Mike Richards and that is how both of those players started their careers.
