Observations:

 

February 2014 - With eight points in his last nine games along with 35 PIMS for Portland of the AHL, McMillian has been rewarded for his strong February with a recall to the Coyotes. It’s his first recall to Phoenix since being acquired from the Ducks in a trade last season. Even with his strong offensive play this past month, McMillian is more of a defensive forward and if he does get into the Coyotes lineup will probably play a bottom six role and won’t contribute much fantasy wise. Keith Duggan

 

April 2013 – McMillan has been dealt to Phoenix, a place he can hopefully refocus his career and get another strong opportunity. He may spend more time on the wing than up the middle, but that will be seen in the next few days. He should have some jump, but not really worth taking a shot at. Jason Banks

 

March 2013 - Becoming a feistier player and is focusing more on the defensive side of his game, as his AHL production decline indicates. Recalled by the Ducks in early March to get in some action on a checking line, which is where his NHL future lies. Dobber

 

February 2012 – McMillan plays a very aggressive and speedy style of play. Played four progressive seasons in the WHL for the Kelowna Rockets and actually suited up 60 games last season for Anaheim. Again this year he played in the show but was demoted back to the AHL’s Syracuse Crunch in December. He is a strong skater and forechecker with a strong overall game that will look to get back into NHL soon. Brendan Ross

 

Fantasy Outlook: D+

 

McMillan is known for his solid all-around game and speed, not so much for his offensive ability.
