Rangers keep busy, recall ’11 first-rounder Miller

JT MIller

The New York Rangers made another significant move on Monday, calling up 2011 first-round pick JT Miller from AHL Connecticut.

Miller, 19, is a 6-foot-1, 200-pound forward who’s having himself quite the year.

He was a key member of Team USA’s gold medal-winning side at the World Juniors — he tied for the team lead in points (nine) and paced America with seven assists in seven games — and recently represented Connecticut at the AHL All-Star game.

Miller’s notched 20 points in 37 games for the Whale this year — pretty solid numbers given it’s his first professional season — and could make his NHL debut Tuesday when the Rangers travel to New Jersey to take on the Devils.

In related moves, the Blueshirts sent Benn Ferriero to the Whale and also recalled Brandon Mashinter, the former San Jose farmhand that played in 13 games for the Sharks in 2010-11.

Earlier on Monday, New York traded Mike Rupp to Minnesota in exchange for Darroll Powe and Nick Palmieri.
