Miller Signs with OHL’s Plymouth

miller4A day after signing an entry level contract with the Rangers, first round pick J.T. Miller has, as expected, signed with the Plymouth Whalers of the OHL.

Here’s Miller on the signing…

“I’m very excited to finally get to Plymouth,” Miller said Thursday in a telephone interview. “I’ve had to make a couple of tough decisions over the last few weeks, but I’m happy to get up there and am ready to play. The two other first-rounders (Stefan Noesen and Rickard Rakell) on the team are great players. Plymouth looks like a strong team with one of the best coaches in the league (Mike Vellucci) – if not the best, in my opinion. I’ve seen Plymouth play a few times, especially when Tyler Seguin was there, and it was great to watch.”

Miller had initially committed to North Dakota but changed his mind after being drafted by the Rangers.

Plymouth Whalers President, General Manager and Head Coach Mike Vellucci on Miller…

“J.T. is a skilled power forward,” said Vellucci. “He already plays what we call Whaler hockey. Given a little time, he should fit in well in Plymouth.”

…i will do my best to follow Miller throughout the year.
