New York Rangers President and General Manager Chris Drury announced today that the team has agreed to terms with defenseman K'Andre Miller on a two-year contract extension.

Miller, 23, established career-highs in goals (9), assists (34) and points (43) in 2022-23, ranking second among Blueshirts defensemen in all three categories. Among NHL defensemen that collected 149-plus minutes of shorthanded time-on-ice, Miller ranked third in PP GA/60 with a 4.43 mark. Miller's 61 takeaways were the fifth most among NHL defensemen last season.

The St. Paul, Minnesota native has accumulated 21 goals and 54 assists for 75 points in 214 career NHL games, all with New York, and has a career plus-44 rating. Since his rookie season in 2020-21, Miller ranks seventh among NHL defensemen in takeaways with 153. Among defensemen taken in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, Miller ranks first in plus/minus, third in ice time per game (21:14) and fourth in games played.

In 2021-22, the 6-5, 215 pound defenseman was the only Ranger to play in all 82 games. That season, Miller ranked third on the team in plus/minus rating (23), TOI/GP (20:36), takeaways (59), and third among defensemen in goals (7), assists (13), and points (20). During his rookie campaign in 2020-21, he registered 12 points (5G-7A) in 53 games and was named to the NHL's All-Rookie Team. Miller averaged 21:07 of ice time per game in 2020-21, which was the most by a Rangers rookie in a season (min. 30 games played) since the NHL began to track ice time in 1997-98.

Miller was originally selected by the Blueshirts in the first round, 22nd overall, of the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.
