Just because games are on hold, doesn’t mean that NHL business is. GM’s around the league are at work trying to improve their rosters for next season, organize plans with current players up for contract renewal and figuring out how to proceed in the event the season resumes or it doesn’t.
One team that conducted some business this weekend was the New York Rangers who have signed K’Andre Miller to an entry-level contract.
Miller was a 2018 first-round pick (No. 22 overall) but spent the last two seasons playing for the University of Wisconsin. The new three-year ELC will begin in the 2020-21 campaign and is worth $925,000 with an AAV of $1.275 million. Miller will have a base salary of $832,500 along with a $92,500 signing bonus in all three seasons.
Rangers Tried to Keep It Quiet
Elliotte Friedman notes that the Rangers’ organization hadn’t planned on announcing the signing. With all that was going on in the sporting world, including the NHL, this didn’t feel like the right time to announce a contract. But, even though the team was uncomfortable releasing the news, it got out anyway.
At this time, the team still hasn’t officially announced the deal. That will likely come Monday.
