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.

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
