J.T. Miller: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After crashing the scene with a two-goal effort in just his second NHL game against the rival Islanders, Miller spent most of the season battling a nagging wrist injury. Once he was healthy enough to get back in the Rangers' lineup, Miller was held quiet, totaling just two goals and two assists in 26 games last season. Nonetheless, it's noteworthy the 20-year-old Miller managed eight goals, 15 assists and 29 penalty minutes in 42 games with the Hartford Wolf Pack last season. His willingness to get involved in scrappy play leaves a good taste within the organizational brass, so the question begs, can new head coach Alain Vigneault's style of play make him not only the wild card in a core of Rangers' forwards who didn't hit their offensive upside, but possibly a sleeper in waiting at an FA pool near you? We think so -- and so should fantasy owners in most formats.
The 19-year-old winger spent most of last season with the Plymouth Whalers of the OHL before a brief stint with the AHL's Connecticut Whale; he definitely possesses offensive upside. In the OHL, Miller posted 62 points in 61 games before being added to the Rangers' playoff roster. While he'll likely spend most of the season in the AHL, Miller's worth a look if he opens the year with the Blueshirts. Remember his name in keeper leagues.
