The New York Rangers recalled forward J.T. Miller from Hartford of the American Hockey League on Thursday. Forward Arron Asham and defenseman Dylan McIlrath were assigned to the Wolf Pack.

Miller, 20, has a goal and an assist in 17 games with the Rangers. Assigned to Hartford on Dec. 9, Miller leads the Wolf Pack with a plus-five rating, and ranks second in goals (seven). He was the Rangers' first-round pick (No. 15) in the 2011 NHL Draft.

Asham returns to Hartford after skating in three of four games with the Rangers after he was recalled from Hartford earlier this month. McIlrath, the team's first-round pick (No. 10) in the 2010 draft, made his NHL debut Dec. 12 against the Columbus Blue Jackets. He leads the AHL in penalty minutes (115) and is tied for second among Wolf Pack defensemen with three goals.

Quote of the Day

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
