Rangers assign Miller to Hartford

October, 5, 2013
The Rangers have assigned forward J.T. Miller to the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League, the team announced via press release Saturday.

Though this move appears to be in anticipation of captain Ryan Callahan's return on Monday, it is a bit surprising for a few reasons. One, they don't need the roster space (especially considering Carl Hagelin's trip to LTIR). Two, Miller had an impressive training camp that essentially forced coach Alain Vigneault's hand to keep him around.

Miller had two shots in 11:58 of ice time in the Rangers' 4-1 season-opening loss to the Coyotes on Thursday.
