A hacker posted a racial slur hundreds of times in an online fan video chat Friday with a black New York Rangers prospect. The NHL team scrambled to disable the hacker on the Zoom chat with K'Andre Miller, the 20-year-old former Wisconsin defenseman drafted No. 22 overall in 2018. The Rangers released a statement, saying: "We were incredibly appalled by this behavior, which has no place online, on the ice, or anywhere, and we are investigating the matter." Miller recently signed with the Rangers after completing his sophomore season at Wisconsin.
