NHL CapHit: $5,250,000 Puckpedia Profile

The Canucks acquired J.T. Miller from the Lightning for a conditional 2020 first-round pick, a 2019 third-round pick and Marek Mazanec.

The Lightning needed to clear some cap-space with Brayden Point and others set to become RFA’s on July 1st, so they move Miller and his $5.25M cap-hit. After scoring 10 goals in his first 19 games following his trade to Tampa Bay, Miller recorded just 13 goals with 34 assists (47 points) in 75 games in his first full season with the Lightning. He was stuck in a bottom-6 role with Tampa but should be in the top-6 with the Canucks.

The Lightning have acquired J.T. Miller and Ryan McDonagh from the Rangers for Vladislav Namestnikov, Libor Hajek, Brett Howden, 2018 1st Round Pick and a conditional 2nd Round Pick.

Miller basically replaces Vladislav Namestnikov in the Lightning lineup, but may not see the first line ice-time that Namestnikov was playing. Miller brings a solid amount of offence to the table as well, having picked up 13 goals and 27 assists (40 points) in 63 games with the Rangers. He should play a very similar, middle-6 role with some PP time as he did in New York.

Miller (knee) missed Monday’s practice; questionable for Tuesday’s game.

Miller had to get stitches on his knee after being hit by a Mats Zuccerello shot on Sunday. Rangers’ head coach Alain Vigneault said it is a 50/50 chance that Miller will be in the lineup on Tuesday. If he can’t play, Oscar Lindberg will get back into the lineup.

The Rangers signed J.T. Miller to a two-year extension on July 13th.

Miller, 23, was the 15th overall pick in 2011 and his breakout season was long awaited. Miller finally broke through in 2015-16 after posting just 33 points (15G / 18A) in 114 games over his first three seasons. Miller scored 22 goals with 21 assists (43 points) last season and figures to take steps forward as a member of the Rangers’ top-6 in 2016-17.

Miller was promoted to the Rangers second line on Wednesday.

With Derek Stepan sidelined with an upper-body injury, Miller skated between Chris Kreider and Martin St. Louis in Wednesday’s practice. Miller played well while Derick Brassard was out, so the move back into the top-6 should spark Miller’s production. He has four assists in his last five games.

Rangers say they have assigned JT Miller to the AHL. With Ryan Callahan returning to the lineup on Monday, Miller would have been bumped out. He will return to the Hartford Wolf Pack where he will see a lot more playing time.

Miller registered one shot and an even plus/minus rating in 11:58 of playing time in the Rangers season opener.
