Miller scored a goal in Saturday's season finale against Boston to finish his rookie season with five goals and seven assists in 53 games. Miller added 62 shots and a plus-9 rating while ranking third on the team in ice time per game (21:07). He showed he can handle a major role at the NHL level, and the 21-year-old Miller should only get better moving forward. He'll likely be locked into a top-four role on New York's blue line for years to come and has the tools to increase his offensive output substantially. The 2018 first-round pick converted from forward to defense a few years ago and possesses arguably the best shot among the Rangers' blueliners.
Miller had a minus-1 rating and two hits over 22:58 of ice time in Thursday's 4-0 loss to the Islanders. Miller was already playing extended minutes with Jacob Trouba (upper body) sidelined, and the rookie's role could increase even further down the stretch with the already thin Rangers blue line losing Ryan Lindgren to injury in this one. While Miller's offensive game is still developing (11 points in 48 games), he has more than held his own at the NHL level as a 21-year-old, as indicated by his plus-13 rating.
Miller had a shot, two blocked shots and a minus-1 rating in Tuesday's 8-4 win over the Penguins. It's disappointing that Miller didn't get in on the fun offensively while nine teammates produced multi-point outings, but he played well in his own end, producing two hits and four takeaways in 21:58 of ice time. The 21-year-old rookie has just one point in his last 12 games, and while Miller's expected to add more offense to his game as his career progresses, his short-term fantasy upside is limited.
Miller promoted to the active roster Monday, per CBS. Miller typically drops to the taxi squad on off-days. The 21-year-old scored the game-winning goal in Saturday's game against the Bruins. He has averaged 21:17 of ice time over the past 12 contests, generating three points and 31 hits in that span.
Miller was reassigned to the taxi squad Sunday, CapFriendly reports. Miller continues to join the taxi squad on off-days. Expect him to be recalled for Monday's tilt with Philadelphia.
