Miller and Skjei weren't playing HS. They were in the USHL playing with USNTDP. Some of their games are against NCAA teams.

Miller was committed to North Dakota. The only reason he chose to go play with Plymouth of the OHL is because he and the Rangers mutually wanted his path to the NHL to be quicker and wanted him signed to a pro contract ASAP.

The Rangers have a great track record with the NCAA in recent years.

Kreider, Stepan, Hagelin, McDonagh.

Their top two picks last June (Skjei and Nieves) were NCAA bound players. The year prior they selected Miller (again who at the time was NCAA bound) and Fogarty.

They love the USNTDP kids. Bourque, Miller, Skjei.
