HARTFORD, CT - Connecticut Whale general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that forward J.T. Miller has been reassigned back to the Whale from the U.S. National Junior Team.

Miller is fresh off winning a gold medal with Team USA at the World Junior Championship in Ufa, Russia, the third gold captured by the U.S. in that event’s history. The USA squad clinched the title with a 3-1 win Saturday over Sweden in the gold medal game.

Miller had an assist in that victory, on a game-clinching empty-net goal by Vince Trocheck, giving Miller seven helpers in seven games in the tournament, tops on the USA squad and good for a tie for second overall among WJC skaters. Miller’s nine points in the tournament (2-7-9) tied him for the U.S. team lead and for fifth overall in the tournament.

Miller, a 19-year-old native of East Palestine, Ohio, has suited up for 26 games with the Whale this year and has scored five goals and added nine assists for 14 points, while serving 25 minutes in penalties.

The Whale’s next action is this Saturday night, January 12, when they play the first of back-to-back games in Hershey against the Bears. Faceoff is 7:00 PM at the Giant Center, and all of the action can be heard live on “The Rock” 106.9 WCCC-FM. Fans can also listen on-line at, and video streaming is available at The next home game for the Whale is Wednesday, January 23, a 7:00 battle with the Adirondack Phantoms.

Whale tickets start as low as $10 each ($12 each when tickets are purchased on the day of the game), at the Public Power Ticket Office at the XL Center, through TicketMaster Charge-by-Phone at 1-800-745-3000 and on-line at
