The Hockey News wrote before the season that, "JT Miller was one of the only young Ranger forwards who didn't plateau last season. He sniped 22 goals playing 15 minutes a game. As he earns more trust and ice time he'll flirty with 30 goals."
Miller averaged a career high 16:22 per game, up from 15:02 in 2015-16.
He tied with Mats Zuccarello for the team lead in even strength points with 45, had 2 goals on the PP, 3 shorthanded and tied with Jimmy Vesey for the team lead in Game winning goals with 6.
Adam Rotter: Miller was the Rangers best forward for a large part of the season and then his game, along with some others, fell off. He never really picked things up in the playoffs but overall this was another year where Miller was better than he was the year before. Miller seems to still be in "the process" but it's encouraging that he continues to improve each season. The Rangers will likely rely on Miller to take on an even bigger role offensively next season.
