J.T. Miller skated on the Rangers' top line during Saturday's 4-1 win over Carolina.
Miller has consistently been a healthy scratch for the Rangers, but coach Alain Vigneault wanted to shake things up by putting him with Derick Brassard and Rick Nash. The 21-year-old didn't register a point in the game, and he probably won't be a long-term fixture on the first line. Miller has five goals and 10 points in 25 games this season. Mats Zuccarello, who has been struggling mightily this season, was demoted to the team's third line. Feb 1 - 9:43 AM

JT Miller will tag in for Lee Stempniak on Saturday night against the Carolina Hurricanes.

When teams talk to the Rangers, they have been asking about the availability of J.T. Miller, according to Steve Zipay of Newsday.

Zipay says that "presumably he’d be in demand" if the Rangers decide they want another star forward. There is no sign the Rangers are willing to move him nor do they have the cap flexibility to think "big" at this point. The 21-year-old Miller has been in and out of the lineup this season, but he’s made some nice progress, with 10 points in 21 games. He is set to be a restricted free agent this offseason. Miller carries a $1.083 million cap hit this season.

J.T. Miller was a healthy scratch on Friday.

Miller sat in the press box as Derek Stepan returned to the Rangers lineup.

Keep an eye on him for next season in deeper leagues.

J.T. Miller will center a line between Martin St. Louis and Chris Kreider in Thursday's game against Boston.

"I'm just trying to play, not get caught in the switching," said Miller, who had been skating on the fourth line as a left winger. "I'm just happy to be able to fill a role when stuff like this happens." He has played all three forward positions on three different lines since returning from the minors on Nov. 29. Miller is getting this chance because Derek Stepan is out with an upper-body injury.

J.T. Miller found the back of the net in the Rangers 3-2 loss to Dallas on Monday.

Miller and Kevin Hayes were the goal scores for the Rangers in a bit of a lack-luster game for a Rangers club that had won eight straight coming into this game. The Stars netminder Kari Lehtonen did have something to do with it though as he was superb in many odd man rushes. For Miller it was a nice response to getting scratched on Saturday night. He has five goals on the season.

J.T. Miller will be back in the Rangers lineup Monday night in Dallas.

Miller was just scratched Saturday night against the Devils, but will return to the lineup replacing Jesper Fast on the fourth line with Dominic Moore and Tanner Glass. Miller has four goals and one assist in 13 games this season but had become a mainstay in the Rangers lineup since his November 29th call up until Saturday. If he is moved up to one of the Rangers top three lines in the future, Miller has some fantasy potential.

Coach Alain Vigneault was strangely vague when he was asked why J.T. Miller was a healthy scratch on Saturday.

Miller has played well of late but Vigneault wanted to get Lee Stempniak in the lineup despite the fact that Miller had three goals in the Rangers seven game winning streak, second best on the team behind only Rick Nash. "Just contemplating what possible lineup (the Devils) could have, considering their injury situation, and just felt that was the best thing for the team tonight," Vigneault said. Fortunately the Rangers ran their win streak to eight games or he would have plenty to answer for. Miller has four goals and five points in 13 games this season and was considered a healthy scratch on Saturday.

J.T. Miller will be a healthy scratch Saturday night against the Devils.

Miller has been in the lineup the last few weeks with Chris Kreider and Lee Stempniak missing some time, but will be the hard-luck scratched player Saturday night. In 13 games played this year, he has registered four goals and one assist for the Rangers. He is a promising young player and will get his chance for regular ice time eventually.

J.T. Miller has moved up to the third line, replacing Lee Stempniak who has the mumps.

Miller will play alongside Carl Hagelin and Kevin Hayes on Saturday and will play on the right side after playing center and left wing earlier in the season. His versatility is allowing the Rangers to use him in a lot of different circumstances. He has three goals and an assist in 10 games this season.

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.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 08:07:00 PM

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.
Sat, Dec 13, 2014 08:45:00 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.

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.
