While John Gibson, John Gaudreau, and the defensive unit have received a great deal of well deserved credit for Team USA's gold medal win at the 2013 World Junior Championship, forward JT Miller was somewhat of an unsung hero for that team.

Miller wasn't exactly flying under the radar at this tournament as he finished among the top 10 scorers at this WJC. In seven games, the New York Rangers prospect scored two goals and added seven assists for nine points to go along with a +5 rating.

But Miller brought more than just scoring to the team as he is the only player on the USA squad with pro experience. Miller plays for the Connecticut Whale of the AHL, which has no doubt helped him to develop his all-around game beyond what it was at last year's WJC where he totaled two goals and two assists in six games.

Miller spoke with the media about winning gold in his final U-20 tournament, with a portion of those comments included in this HF video.
