Observations:

 

May 2015 – Milano had a great first year in the OHL, playing for the Plymouth Whalers. While his numbers weren’t quite as impressive as they were with the USDP team, he still amassed 68 points in 50 games. He also participated on the USA’s U20 WJC team, putting up two goal and two assists in five games. When his junior team was eliminated from playoff contention, Milano joined the Falcons for their last nine games where he collected five assists. Milano’s short stint with the AHL’s Falcons shows he has the potential to contribute at the next level. – Chris Bagwell

 

August 2014 - After weeks of the media questioning Sonny Milano's immediate future, Columbus' 2014 1st round pick has officially stated that he will forego Boston College and play with the Plymouth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League for the 2013-14 season, stating the number of games as important in his preparation for professional hockey. Milano stands a very good chance at becoming one of the OHL's leading scorers. Brendan Ross

 

June 2014 – The Columbus Blue Jackets selected Sonny Milano 16th overall in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Brendan Ross

 

February 2014 – Skating alongside Jack Eichel (potential 2015 1st overall selection) certainly hasn’t impeded Sonny Milano’s rise up the draft boards. However, Milano is a tremendous prospect in his own right. Slick puck handling and a high panic threshold allow this dynamic winger to dominate possession and dictate the pace of the game. He owns good separation speed with elusive qualities which makes him a difficult attacker to contain. Milano breeds offence and joins an exciting group of highly skilled smaller forwards looking to prove their worth – a common player type of the 2014 draft class. Committed to Boston College (NCAA). Brendan Ross

 

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: B

He has great hands and electric speed. Will likely spend at least another year in junior and then possibly the AHL before making the jump.
