Very, very doubtful. If there is a lockout, he's either going back to juniors or to the AHL. If he goes back to juniors, there's no chance he'll be on the Rangers next season. If he goes to the AHL, it's possible he could earn a callup, but not likely that they'd waste a year of his contract by giving him 10+ games. If there is no lockout, he'll be invited to camp, but I still think it's very unlikely that he would make the team.

I think the most likely scenario is that he's sent back to juniors.

Note: Miller is 19 and wasn't drafted out of the CHL, so he is eligible to play in the AHL at any time. If he plays in the AHL at 19, but doesn't play 10+ games in the NHL, his contract will slide, lengthening his ELC by 1 year.
