Miller, who also goes by J.T., has committed to the University of North Dakota for the 2011-12 campaign. He's a two-way forward that's responsible anywhere on the ice, can use his body well and is very solid when it comes to dishing the puck. On the flip side, he isn't the most consistent of players, and that's something he'll have to work on in college and, eventually, in the pro ranks.
