HARTFORD, CT - Connecticut Whale general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that the parent New York Rangers have reassigned forward J.T. Miller to the Whale from the Plymouth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey league.

Miller, 19, a 6-2, 195-pound native of East Palestine, Ohio, was the Rangers’ first-round pick (15th overall) in the 2011 NHL Draft. In 61 games with the Whalers this year, he scored 25 goals and added 37 assists for 62 points, and registered 61 penalty minutes. Those totals were good for fourth among Plymouth skaters in assists, a tie for fourth in points and fifth on the team in goals. In 13 OHL playoff contests, Miller notched two goals and eight assists (tied for second-most on the team) for 10 points, along with 18 PIM.

Miller also saw action this winter in the World Junior Championship for Team USA, scoring two goals and chipping in two assists for four points in six games. Prior to joining Plymouth, he played two seasons in the U.S. National Team Development Program (USNTDP).

The Whale play Game Two of their best-of-five, Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers tomorrow night, Saturday, April 21, at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, with faceoff at 7:00 PM (“The Rock” 106.9 WCCC-FM, www.ctwhale.com). The Whale are up a game in the series, after a 3-0 victory last night in Game One in Bridgeport. The series switches to the XL Center in Hartford for Game Three this Sunday, April 22, and faceoff for that contest will be 5:00. A Game Four, if it is necessary, would be in Hartford Wednesday, April 25 at 7:00, and if the series went the full five games, a decisive Game Five would be next Saturday, April 28 in Bridgeport at 7:00.

Tickets to Game Three at the XL Center are on sale now at the Public Power Ticket Office at the XL Center, as well as on-line at www.ctwhale.com and through TicketMaster Charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000, and all Upper Level tickets for Game Three are available for $5 each at the Public Power Ticket Office at the XL Center.

Playoff ticket packages are also available that include tickets to all possible home playoff games. To speak to a Whale account executive about a playoff ticket package, call (860) 728-3366. More information is available at www.ctwhale.com.

The AHL’s Connecticut Whale is operated by Whalers Sports and Entertainment, a Hartford-based sports marketing and event firm founded by Howard Baldwin and Howard Baldwin, Jr.. The team is the top player-development affiliate of the NHL’s New York Rangers.
