Phoenix calls up Brandon McMillan Tuesday | 03/05/2014 10:02 AM
NewsBrandon McMillan had an assist in Phoenix's 1-0 win Tuesday night.
Arizona Republic/Phoenix Gazette
ImpactIt was McMillan's first point of the 2013-14 campaign. He's worth taking a look at because the Coyotes are giving him a healthy amount of playing time and he should contribute both offensively and in terms of penalty minutes. He has 27 points and 76 penalty minutes in 46 AHL games this season.
Brandon McMillan could excel with Coyotes | 03/01/2014 10:55 AM
NewsIf Brandon McMillan hasn't already been snapped up in your fantasy league, you may want to give him a shot.
Arizona Republic/Phoenix Gazette
ImpactThe Coyotes are giving him a shot. They like his talent and, after calling him up from the minors the other day (where he had 27 points and 76 penalty minutes in 46 AHL games this season), he was placed on a line with the Coyotes' top two forwards -- Shane Doan and Mike Ribeiro -- and has looked good. "A player who plays with good pace," coach Dave Tippett said of McMillan. "Details of the game are pretty good. Been a good player in the minors for us. He's been a guy we've been wanting to get an opportunity for and watched him closely over the break, and he played well." McMillan was acquired at last year's trade deadline from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for center Matthew Lombardi.

NewsBrandon McMillan has been dealt to the Phoenix Coyotes for Matthew Lombardi.

ImpactMcMillan spent 60 games in his rookie season with the Ducks in 2010-11 but has spent most of the last two seasons in the minors as he played only 25 games with four assists last season and only six thus far in 2013 with a measly assist. He has a new chance to play in the desert but is likely a bottom-six forward at best.
Brandon McMillan happy to be back | 03/05/2013 6:29 AM
NewsBrandon McMillan played 6:39 minutes in his seasonal debut for the Ducks Monday.
Orange County Register
ImpactMcMillan saw fourth line action alongside Emerson Etem and Patrick Maroon and was minus-one on the evening. He missed 19 games in the AHL this season with a broken arm and received the call up after scoring four goals in his last eight games for Norfolk of the AHL. "I knew I was playing really well and I knew if I kept playing the same way, I was going to get an opportunity," McMillan said. "I realized I could come back in and be able to prove myself again. Sitting down there and just waiting, it wasn't good enough. It's not good enough. I want to be here and this is where I want to play." Don't expect a lot of stats from McMillan if he remains as a bottom six forward, but he will chip in with an occasional goal.
