J.T. Miller will not ask for trade, has no intention of leaving Canucks

Chris Johnston and Elliotte Friedman go over all the news and rumours around the NHL, including Nazem Kadri considering an appeal of his suspension.

After finishing bottom of the North Division, a busy off-season awaits the Vancouver Canucks.

With Travis Green retained as head coach and Jim Benning staying on as general manager, the focus now shifts to the roster for both potential incoming and outgoing players.

One player whose future was supposedly uncertain was J.T. Miller, but it appears that he is committed to the Canucks.

“I reached out to the source today and here’s J.T. Miller’s exact comment: ‘No, he does not want to be traded. He does not want to leave. He wants to be a Vancouver Canuck. He has no intentions of leaving. We have a good team here and he wants to be a part of it,” said Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman during the Headlines segment on Hockey Night in Canada.

Miller has two years remaining on his current deal which carries an average-annual value of $5.25 million. The winger registered 15 goals and 31 points in 53 games this past season following a breakthrough 72-point campaign in 2019-20 while flanking a line with Elias Pettersson and Brock Boeser.
