David Conte, Devils Director of Scouting:
"Randy was a very late developer. He didn't really blossom until he was a junior, senior at Yale and then he had a very lengthy career. Part of that is development. I think Miles has gone from 5-foot-9 to 6-foot-2 in a year; from a 150 pounds to 182 pounds and is still in process here."
"He goes to a great prep school, he's a good student – he'll be able to follow the programs."
"He's a tenacious player and we hope he takes that path. It's a little bit slower and methodical, but the return can be very significant."
