Chris Peters at the United States of Hockey takes a look at some United States World Junior Camp battles and feels Rangers 2011 first round pick J.T. Miller is a lock to make the team when camp opens tomorrow…
“J.T. Miller has been one of the better American prospects from June to right now. After being selected by the Rangers in the first round at the draft, he’s been a top performer at rookie camps, the NJEC and for the Plymouth Whalers this year. He was also Team USA’s best forward at the 2011 Under-18 World Championship.”
Miller has 13g, 26a in 31 games this season.
…while it was unfortunate that Christian Thomas was cut from Canadian camp this week, it looks like we’ll all have a reason to keep our eye on the World Junior Championships which start at the end of the month.
…Milller’s road to make a serious push for a roster spot next season continues.
