Rangers prospect J.T. Miller, the team's first-round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, will be extending his stay at the USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp at Lake Placid, N.Y., after making it through the annual mid-camp cut on Tuesday.

Miller, who scored two goals in a Blue-White scrimmage on Sunday and was also impressive in Team White's 5-3 win over Finland on Monday, is part of a 29-player roster for upcoming games against Sweden on Wednesday, Finland on Thursday, and Sweden on Saturday.

Shane McColgan, a Rangers 2011 fifth-round draft pick who had also been attending the camp, was among Tuesday's cuts

J.T. Miller
McColgan had been one of the 44 players invited to the camp and had skated on a line with Miller in the game against Finland.

Being among the final 29 puts Miller one step closer to the 2012 World Junior Championship tournament, which will take place at Edmonton and Calgary in December and January. Last year, Rangers prospects Chris Kreider and Ryan Bourque both played for Team USA, which claimed a bronze medal. The previous year, Kreider and Bourque won Team USA's second gold medal at the World Junior Championships, and they are among the only group of players to win medals for the U.S. in consecutive years..

The final roster will include 23 of the 29 players who made Tuesday's cut, unless other candidates who were not at the camp are chosen during the 2011-12 season.
