Brandon McMillan was the Rockets fourth round pick in the 2006 WHL Bantam draft, 79th overall.

Some statements that would describe the North Delta native are; “A great passer”, “a fast skater”, “calm in the offensive zone.”

Last season McMillan had a break out season of sorts. In 71 games McMillan found the back of the net 15 times and recorded 41 points.

His speed is second to none as Head Coach Ryan Huska says, “Brandon would be considered one of our fastest skaters on our roster.” Thanks to that quickness McMillan found a home on the penalty kill and excelled.

This past summer McMillan was selected by the Anaheim Ducks in the third round of the NHL entry draft. He impressed the Ducks coaching staff at his first NHL rookie camp before being sent back to Kelowna to continue to develop and to help the Rockets reach their goals this year.

With the style of game changing to more of a game of quickness, McMillan fits the mold perfectly and should be part of the Rockets organization before making the jump to the next level.
