In a bit of disturbing news, the Wisconsin Badgers have suspended defenseman K’Andre Miller for a violation of team rules. He wasn’t present at their practice and it doesn’t sound like he’ll take part in their IntraSquad game.
Obviously, it’s not what you want to hear. Especially for the future New York Rangers defenseman, who’s expected to have a big sophomore year for the Badgers. He was a preseason unanimous All Big Ten selection.
Taken by the Rangers with the second first round pick in the 2018 NHL Draft, Miller has a lot of upside. Hopefully, this is only a temporary setback and valuable learning lesson for him.
