Talbot, Miller officially called up

October 15, 2013, by

In the worst kept secret of the 2013-2014 season so far, the Rangers have officially called up goalie Cam Talbot and forward J.T. Miller (per the AHL Transaction Log). This was originally revealed by Melissa of Black & Blueshirts, as she attended a Hartford Wolfpack meet and greet in which only Talbot and Miller were absent.

The moves were expected, although some may find it interesting that the Rangers only called up one forward. It looks like they will roll 11 forwards and 7 defensemen for the time being. (I don’t know how to count).

A pair of roster spots opened when the Rangers waived Martin Biron and Arron Asham yesterday.


  1. Pete says:

    Hope they make an impact but these moves dont really change much, if anything.

  2. Rangers Fan in Boston says:

    Would have liked to see Miller in the AHL longer. We’ve seen what happens when the Rangers yo-yo players back and forth. Let him gain momentum in the AHL over the course of a month or two.

    Hope this works for him and the Rangers.

  3. Centerman21 says:

    Did Biron clear waivers? Anyone know yet?

  4. Spozo says:

    Zipay reporting MDZ out today with the flu. If he can’t go tomorrow then they roll 6 defenders?

  5. Matt S says:

    They have 12 healthy forwards with Miller. Asham sat out the game where they had 11 forwards.

  6. Mike O. says:

    I thought they had two forwards coming in? Are they trying to send a message to Kreider?

    • Dave says:

      Wasn’t needed. I don’t think it’s a message to Kreider, just that he is best served getting top minutes in the AHL.
