Something horrible happened today.
On Friday, the third of April, the New York Rangers held a Q and A session with recently signed defenseman K’Andre Miller. Miller played for two seasons with the Wisconsin Badgers accumulating 40 points off 12 goals and 28 assists. 2 of those goals and 1 assist came against the Wolverines this year. He was listed by EliteProspects as the #1 Rangers prospect in the NCAA beating out senior Morgan Barron from Cornell for that award. After signing his entry-level contract with the Rangers who drafted him in the first round of the 2018 draft, the Rangers wanted to keep fan engagement going in the Coronavirus induced pause. They decided to let 500 people in a video conference on the platform Zoom with Miller to ask him questions. In hindsight, this was a horrible idea.
4 hours after the incident, the New York Rangers released this statement:
One response to this that I have seen that makes me happy is the masses of New York Ranger fans and players saying how they are excited for K’Andre to come to New York and sharing highlights of him, including his beautiful snipe on the power play from the blue line against the Michigan Wolverines in Yost.
