JT Miller has been moved up to the Rangers' first line center Sunday night in Edmonton.

With Derick Brassard out with the mumps, Coach Vigneault has elected to promote the 21 year old Miller up to center Rick Nash and Mats Zuccarello. Miller has four points in eight games thus far this season.

J.T. Miller has temporarily replace Chris Kreider on a line with Derek Stepan.

Kreider is now on the fourth unit as Miller will continue to play as a top-six forward, well at least for the first shift on Saturday. Miller has two goals and three points in seven games this season and could provide some offense with a talent like Stepan on his line.
Dec 13 - 8:45 AM

It looks like J.T. Miller will start getting ice time on the Rangers' second power-play unit.

Miller has averaged just 0:38 seconds of power-play ice time per game in 2014-15. This should provide him with a nice boost after he scored two goals and three points in seven games.
Dec 11 - 8:59 AM

J.T. Miller scored a goal in a 4-3 overtime win versus Pittsburgh.

Miller logged a season-high 14:18 minutes of ice time. He has two goals and three points in seven contests in 2014-15.
Dec 9 - 10:53 AM

J.T. Miller will be back in the lineup for the Rangers Monday night versus the Penguins.

With Chris Kreider hurting himself (neck spasms) in a collision with Carl Hagelin during the team's practice, J.T. Miller will lineup with Martin St. Louis and Derek Stepan. Miller has been impressive for the Rangers since being recalled from the minors and may become a mainstay in the Rangers lineup going forward.
Dec 8 - 6:46 PM

J.T. Miller is in and Anthony Duclair is out for the Rangers Monday night versus the Lightning.

After posting a goal and an assist Saturday versus the Flyers, Rangers coach Alain Vigneault will keep J.T. Miller in the lineup. He will play the wing on the fourth line alongside Dominic Moore and Jesper Fast, meaning Anthony Duclair will be a healthy scratch. If Miller can build off Saturday's impressive performance, he may become a mainstay in the Rangers lineup.
Dec 1 - 5:47 PM

J.T. Miller has been called up by the New York Rangers.

Miller has six goals and 15 points in 18 AHL games. He has the potential to put up good numbers in the NHL too, but he's had difficulty establishing himself with the Rangers over the last few years. Even when he's in the lineup, he typically doesn't get much playing time. With that in mind, we encourage you to keep an eye on him, but he's not worth picking up in standard leagues yet.

Larry Brooks of the New York Post thinks that J.T. Miller should be moved from center to the wing.

We cannot disagree with Miller who says that the Rangers are strong down the middle (they are) but have a pressing need on the wing where they really do not have a physical presence. Miller is currently with Hartford of the AHL and playing center. Should he get a shot on the wing, it will increase the 21-year-old's chance of playing in the NHL this season as he will not need an injury to a centerman to be recalled.

The New York Ranges have sent J.T. Miller to the minors.

Miller will report to Hartford after missing the last two games as a healthy scratch. The 21-year-old needs playing time, something he was not going to see a lot of with the Rangers at the current time.

J.T. Miller was a healthy scratch again on Thursday.

It was Miller's second straight game in the press box. He's got offensive potential and at the age of 21 it's too early to write him off, but we can't recommend owning him in standard leagues until he earns a regular spot on one of the Rangers' top two lines.
Oct 17 - 5:24 AM

J.T. Miller is projected to spend Tuesday's game in the press box.

Miller has no points and a minus-four rating in three games this season. The 21-year-old has excelled in the minors, but he's had a hard time stepping up at the NHL level.
Oct 14 - 6:49 PM

The New York Rangers are hoping that J.T Miller can take his game to another level this season.

The Rangers bought out Brad Richards in the off-season and have no lost Derek Stepan to injury, so there will be more opportunities for Miller at center. The 21-year-old has been warned about being more committed on and off the ice, and he feels he put in the necessary work over the summer. "I put more into it this summer," said Miller. "So I'm hoping for a better outcome."

With Derek Stepan (fractured fibula) expected to miss the start of the regular season, J.T. Miller's chances of making the team's roster have increased.

Stepan will be able to return in late October or early November, but that would give Miller plenty of time to show what he can do if he makes the team at all. Miller did play in 30 games with the Rangers last season, but he was limited to 11:27 minutes per game.
Sep 25 - 8:18 AM

It appears as if J.T. Miller, looking to win a spot on the Rangers’ roster, has started training camp with a bang.

Last season, coach Alain Vigneault questioned the 21-year-old’s commitment, saying he could be a good NHL player or a good minor-league on. Vigneault says he’s seen "progress" in Miller conditioning-wise, calling it a "big step since last year." The coach was asked about whether Miller being more dependable would help him make the team. "I think J.T. with what I’m seeing so far, some guys figure it out," Vigneault said. "If he figures it out now, I mean that’s a big step for us. Some guys figure it out later. There’s no doubt in his skill set, there’s no doubt in his ability, you need to go through the process, and pick up experiences with reads with the puck and reads without the puck." Miller is looking to win a job on the third line. He has the talent and pedigree to do so.
