Whale's Miller joins Team USA
Connecticut Whale general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that forward J.T. Miller has been reassigned from the Whale to the U.S. National Junior Team and is participating in its training camp for the World Junior Championship Tournament.
Miller, a 19-year-old native of East Palestine, Ohio, has suited up for all 26 of the Whale’s games this year and has scored five goals and added nine assists for 14 points, while serving 25 minutes in penalties.
A first-round pick (15th overall) by the parent New York Rangers in the 2011 NHL draft, Miller went to the World Junior Championship with Team USA last year, scoring two goals and adding two assists for four points in six games.
This year’s IIHF World Junior Championship takes place from December 26 through January 5 in Ufa, Russia.
