JT Miller Drafted By New York Rangers

Pittsburgh Hornets product JT Miller became the first Pittsburgh-area player taken in today’s NHL Draft when he was selected in the first round, 15th overall, by the New York Rangers.

He now becomes the highest ever drafted area player, taken one spot higher than R.J. Umberger was in 2001.

Miller is a native of East Palastine, Ohio, but played youth hockey in the Pittsburgh area and now calls Coraopols home… or at least did before being drafted today.
