J.T. Miller isn’t playing for North America tonight, but he says he’s healthy


J.T. Miller isn’t suiting up for Team America on Sunday, but New York Rangers fans can breathe easy. It looks like he’s just a healthy scratch.

Miller seemed shaken up after a shot hit his hand, yet ESPN’s Craig Custance reports that the Rangers forward insists that he’s OK.

A lot of people were concerned about Miller during the eventual 4-0 win for Team North America vs. Europe:

Jacob Trouba joins Miller as a healthy scratch while John Gibson slides into the net for Matt Murray (more on that later).

Based on the last game’s scratches, one would expect Dylan Larkin and Colton Parayko to play against Europe on Sunday.

As a reminder, Marian Hossa is back in the mix for Europe.
