New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has assigned forward J.T. Miller to the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League (AHL).
Miller, 20, has registered three goals and three assists in 28 games with the Rangers this season, including two points (one goal, one assist) in three games since his recall on February 25. He returns to Hartford where he has recorded AHL career-highs with 10 goals, 16 assists, 26 points, and a plus-seven rating in 26 games this season. Miller ranked fourth on the team in goals and assists, fifth in points, and was tied for first in plus/minus rating at the time of his recall. His 1.00 points per game average also leads the Wolf Pack. Miller, who represented the Eastern Conference as an AHL All-Star on January 28, tallied a career-high, three assists, on January 26 at Adirondack, and posted a career-best, four points, with two goals and two assists on February 14 at Springfield.
The East Palestine, Ohio native was originally selected by the Rangers as a first round choice, 15th overall, in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
