8th year veteran center Carson McMillan(29) leaves after his first full season in the ECHL as captain with Idaho Steelheads for Esbjerg Energy of Denmark’s Metal Ligaen.

He posted career high marks scoring 19 goals and 15 assists in 70 games, then added another 7 points (1-6) in 7 2016 Kelly Cup Playoff match-ups.

It’s a bit of a wonder why he has only skated 16 big league games getting his first NHL goal and an assist as a sophomore player with draft squad Minnesota Wild, then putting in another and two more tallies through a new best 11 contests in his follow-up campaign, but failed to crack the roster as a regular.

He was signed to a pair of one-year extensions upon the expiration of his entry level deal but was mostly relegated to the farm clubs, then signed his first AHL contract in 2014/2015, when he could find any suitors at the higher level.

The recently turned 28-year old should find a renewed spirit overseas and could even find himself among the top scorers.

Carson McMillan(27) Houston Aeros


Minnesota Wild’s 2007 7th round draft pick (#200 overall) wing Carson McMillan(27) gets the honor of being on the list of five as one of the first players suspended in the 2011/2012 AHL season for an illegal hit to the head. He’ll sit four games.

He’s a pretty sizable presence at 6’1″ 200 lbs. and has always put up above average pims each season.

Strange little fact about his pro career, in one of his 4¬†NHL¬†games played last year, he scored a goal on his very first shot on net. That’s got to be worth something.
