Looks like the Gordie Clark and company knew what they were doing when they drafted J.T. Miller 15th overall this past June. Miller made the
US Junior Team Eval Camp after a few days of tryouts. He will likely be playing with tryout linemate Rocco Grimaldi, as they showed terrific chemistry throughout the tryouts, scrimmages, and exhibitions. The other player on that line, 5th round draft pick Shane McColgan, was cut from the team. McColgan, like Miller and Grimaldi, had a strong tryout, but it was not enough to crack the very talented US roster.
The US forwards include first round picks Miller (2011), Austin Watson (2010), Emerson Etem (2010), Charlie Coyle (2010), and Nick Bjugstad (2010).
