Rangers to recall J.T. Miller

Per Larry Brooks, the New York Rangers are going to recall forward J.T. Miller for tomorrow’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Rangers recall Chris Mueller; return Jesper Fast and J.T. Miller

The New York Rangers have recalled forward Chris Mueller from the Hartford Wolf Pack, returning forwards Jesper Fast and J.T. Miller in the process.
