Rangers teammates and others express support for K’Andre Miller
Yesterday we reported about the incident involving Rangers prospect K’Andre Miller. In the aftermath of what occurred, both the team and the NHL released statements which you can read here. Soon after, Jacob Trouba led the wave of support from Miller’s future teammates followed suit by Tony Granato and more.
Rangers defenseman Jacob Trouba put out this message which was followed by Ryan Strome and Tony DeAngelo.
Last night I spoke with a team representative to express our support for K’Andre Miller and the organization. Based on our conversation the team is actively looking for the culprit(s) that hijacked the Zoom Q&A. Everyone in the organization is “shaken up” by the incident especially since the Rangers are one of the most progressive and inclusive teams in sports. Sadly, there are some trying to blame the Rangers for this incident or are upset with how long it took them to respond.
Aside from Miller, the Rangers needed to support their digital media department that conducted the Q&A who were also deeply impacted. Then the organization reported the incident to the NHL and they released statements in conjunction just seconds apart. Hopefully those angered by the anonymous cretin(s) stop looking to misdirect their anger at one of the classiest organizations in all of sports.
We offer K’Andre and all those that were directly impacted our love and support. Glad that the Rangers and the league are investigating the situation.
Wisconsin and Team USA Love
K’Andre’s former coach from Wisconsin who is also a former Ranger, Tony Granato sent out a strong statement. That was followed by the university and also USA Hockey.
The NHL has no place for hate. The LA Kings even sent out a message of support as well as former NHL GM Brian Burke.
