Two years.

One in Plymouth of the OHL, one (or half) in the AHL.

I suspect they will give him a long look in camp September 2012, weather he starts in the NHL or starts in the AHL.

Kid is on a fast track.

JT Miller officially signed with Plymouth

Quote:
Plymouth Whalers President, General Manager and Head Coach Mike Vellucci announced the signing of 18-year-old forward J.T. Miller, who was originally selected by the Whalers in the fifth round (93th overall) of the 2009 Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection.
Quote:
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.

Im very excited to finally get to Plymouth, Miller said Thursday in a telephone interview. Ive had to make a couple of tough decisions over the last few weeks, but Im 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. Ive seen Plymouth play a few times, especially when Tyler Seguin was there, and it was great to watch.

1. J.T. Miller - Plymouth Whalers
The first player this offseason to de-commit from an NCAA program (North Dakota) and join the OHL, Miller is poised to make a large offensive impact in Plymouth. The 15th overall pick by the New York Rangers, Miller is a solid two way player who'll fit right into the Whalers line up alongside the likes of Stefan Noesen and Rickard Rakell. For those who watched the Under 18's last year, I felt like Miller was the U.S.' best forward at the tournament and I look forward to the energy he's going to bring next year.

And while its highly unlikely the Rangers would have him start in the AHL this season, its quite possible he could make the jump after one junior season, much like former Kitchener Rangers forward Jeremy Morin did with the Chicago Blackhawks farm team.

If hes ready to play in the American league I fully support whatever the New York Rangers want to do with him, said Vellucci. Were going to develop him hopefully we develop him well enough that he goes to the NHL next year and we dont even have to talk about the (AHL). Losing guys to a higher level has never bothered me thats my job, to get them to the next level.

The faster I can do that, the better our program is going to be because players are going to want to play for me and for us if they know that I have their best interests moving forward.

The Rangers regretted having Grachev play in the AHL as a 19 year old. That is a discussion for next year.

Different players, though.

Grachev couldn't play both sides of the puck, and when he couldn't plow through grown men like he did against kids in the OHL, he wasn't the same player. They kept asking him to work on his defensive game.

Miller is a playmaker, he's a two way responsible player. He doesn't have to rely on size and strength, even though he does have good size and strength, he can play the game.

Whalers coach/general manager Mike Vellucci said he’d already spoken with the Rangers about Miller’s role next season.

“He’s going to play a lot of minutes, more minutes than he probably would have played in college this year,” Vellucci said. “He’s going to play 23 or 24 minutes a game. He’s going to play 68 games, so double the amount he would have in college.

“And he’ll play a pro-style play, with playoffs a best-of-seven series.”

Vellucci said Miller will start out playing center, but will likely end up getting time at all three forward spots this season. He’ll also get time on the power play and penalty kill.

Can't ask for anything more.

I'll be quite disappointed if he scores a PPG this season lol. And I really don't have high expectations, that's just very low expectations.

Only two guys on the Whalers (Czarnik, Noesen) were at over a point per game this season.

If JT Miller can hit the OHL his rookie season, contribute at a near point per game clip while playing 20+ minutes a night in all three situations, that's a season I can definitely be excited about.

He wasn't even at a PPG in the USDP or USHL

That's because the USHL is one of the lowest scoring junior leagues in the world.

Scoring in the OHL is much higher, and he'll be playing on a line with 2 other very good players. Noesen was drafted after Miller, and scored over a PPG in his draft year. If Miller only manages a PPG (which is by no means bad, it's just not that impressive) I will definitely be pessimistic about his upside.

PPG at the age of 19 in the OHL is nothing to get excited about, especially if said player is a first rounder. That's part of the reason Werek was traded, and why everyone and their mothers is so low on Bourque.

My expectations on his scoring are low, but I'll gladly eat that plate of crow if I'm wrong

Lots of minutes, all situations, big role, U-20 WJC, big year for Miller. Coming out party. People will see how underrated he has been and what a great value pick he was at #15.
