Vancouver Canucks forward J.T. Miller will be in the lineup Monday night for his season debut versus the Calgary Flames, he confirmed Sunday.

Miller missed the club's first three games due to COVID-19 protocols. He never tested positive, but he wasn't able to take to the ice due to close contact with Vancouver defenseman Jordie Benn, who's still unable to play.

"I followed league and government protocols and I was cleared to return," Miller said. "I'm ready to get back at it ... I'm excited for the game tomorrow."

Miller is entering his second season with the Canucks after a trade from the Tampa Bay Lightning. He made an instant impact with Vancouver in the 2019-20 campaign, leading the club in scoring with 72 points in the regular season before a strong playoff showing.

The Canucks are currently 1-2. They were shut out by the Flames and their former netminder, Jacob Markstrom, on Saturday.
