The effort to bring K’Andre Miller into the Rangers organization is “pretty far down the road,” an individual with knowledge of discussions between general manager Jeff Gorton and the Wisconsin sophomore defenseman’s camp told The Post.
“The ball is rolling for K’Andre to be a Ranger,” the person said.
More specifically, the ball is rolling for Miller, the 22nd-overall selection in the 2018 entry draft, to become a member of the AHL Wolf Pack either on a PTO with the first year of the 20-year-old’s entry level contract set for next season or on Year 1 of his ELC.
Miller, a 6-4, 205-pound lefty, recorded 18 points (7-11) in 36 games this season for the Badgers, whose crushingly disappointing 14-20-2 season ended with their first-round ouster from the Big Ten tournament by Ohio State on Wednesday night.
He would join the core of young defense prospects in Hartford that includes Libor Hajek and Yegor Rykov. The Wolf Pack are in a playoff position with 15 games remaining.
