Miller’s Goal Is To Make The Team Out Of Camp

J.T. Miller, who is back on the ice after missing the Rangers team scrimmage and first two preseason games with a hamstring injury, is out to show the Rangers coaching staff what he can do in the final four preseason games (via Blueshirts United)…

“My goal is to make the team out of training camp, and a lot will depend on next couple of games, should I play in them.”

Now that Miller is healthy, he's ready to get back into the flow…

“I am looking to make the best of it, take advantage of my opportunities. I'm not worried about (hamstring injury earlier in camp), just trying each practice to get better, faster, catch up on what I missed.”

…i initially figured this injury meant the end of Miller's chances of making the roster out of camp, but upon further review, with four preseason games remaining there's still ample opportunity for him to make an impression. However, he's really going to have to put in double the effort as missing a week of training camp can really set a player back. Especially with a new coaching staff.

…i'm really rooting for Miller to make the squad as the Rangers are lacking players with his tough, two-way game with the absence of Callahan and potentially Stepan.
