A very fast skater, McMillan is not known for his scoring, but for his solid two-way play, his speed, his aggressive forechecking, and his leadership. McMillan projects as a third liner, but players with his speed, leadership, and work ethic are very valuable in the NHL. McMillan competes hard for loose pucks and plays a very smart hockey game, choosing the safe play rather than trying to do too much.
McMillan will compete for a spot in the AHL.
McMillan was dealt by the Anaheim Ducks to the Phoenix Coyotes at the 2013 NHL trade deadline in the deal that sent Matthew Lombardi to the Ducks.
