NEW YORK (AP) - The Rangers went with J.T. Miller, a forward from the U.S. National Development program with the No. 15 pick in the NHL draft on Friday night.
Miller, an 18-year-old left wing from East Palestine, Ohio, was the 23rd-ranked skater among North American players in the NHL Central Scouting Bureau's final rankings. He had 11 goals and 26 assists in 48 games with the U.S. under-18 team, and led the American squad with four goals and nine assists in six games at this year's World Under-18 Championship.
His dream of reaching the NHL will be put on hold for at least a little while as Miller has committed to play at the University of North Dakota next season.
