NAME: Jonathan Miller
POSITION: Center
TEAM: USA U-18
AGE: 18
HEIGHT: 6-foot-1
WEIGHT: 198 pounds

What It Means: The Rangers have a great goaltender. They have four solid defenseman. The foundation is there. But let's be honest, their depth/skill up front needs to be improved. The Blueshirts seemed to address that by drafting Miller, who had 13 points at the World Championships. He is currently committed to attending North Dakota. So we'll have to see what happens there.

*Scout’s Take: Intensity and determination to go along with a solid base of skating and skill makes Miller exciting to watch. At international tournaments, he showed he can produce among his peers and although there is upside to his offensive game, he is an attractive forechecking forward who will add secondary scoring.
