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.

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.

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.

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.

J.T. Miller will attempt to be the Rangers' third-line center at training camp.

If he can show that he can handle the defensive responsibility then he might be able to earn a permanent spot in New York's lineup. Miller had three goals and three assists in 30 games last year.

J.T. Miller (shoulder) hopes to be ready for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Miller resumed practicing with the Rangers on Tuesday. He was previously regarded as doubtful for Wednesday's contest, but we'll have to wait and see. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault is likely to continue to play his cards close to his chest when it comes to injury information.
Jun 4 - 9:52 AM

J.T. Miller (shoulder) took part in Tuesday's practice.

That's in line with Rangers coach Alain Vigneault's early projections. Miller is unlikely to play in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, but he might be an option for Game 2.
Jun 3 - 6:06 PM

Coach Alain Vigneault thinks that J.T. Miller (shoulder) will be able to practice with his teammates on Tuesday.

He's still probably doubtful for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, but he could be an option if he shows progress on Tuesday and Wednesday morning. Miller missed Games 5 and 6 of the Eastern Conference Final because of a shoulder ailment.
Jun 2 - 1:01 PM

J.T. Miller (shoulder) skated by himself after practice on Sunday.

Miller suffered the injury to his right shoulder in Game 4 against Montreal eight days ago. Coach Alain Vigneault said that Miller is still "a couple more days" away from being able to return to action. Stay tuned.
Jun 2 - 9:25 AM

New York Rangers winger J.T. Miller didn't skate with the team on Sunday, joining fellow banged-up player Cameron Talbot.

Miller seems to be struggling with a shoulder injury that is officially labeled an upper-body injury. He's been in and out of the Rangers mix even when healthy, so this isn't really a situation of huge concern. Regardless, he might be one of the Rangers who benefits from the team getting a nice break between playoff rounds.
Jun 1 - 2:54 PM

J.T. Miller (upper body) didn't travel with the Rangers to Montreal.

It's unclear if he'll be available to play in Game 5 after he suffered an upper-body injury on Sunday night. His shoulder made the contact with the post during the second period of Game 4 and it was initially thought that he would be fine. Derek Stepan is with the team, so it's leading to speculation now that he could be in the lineup for Game 5 on Tuesday.
