He was ranked 16th amongst North American prospects in Central Scouting’s mid-term rankings prior to the 2014 NHL Draft.
Milano is a gifted offensive player whose skating and technical skills make him a consistent threat. He doesn't play a particularly physical game and is still developing his defensive instincts but his scoring skills are top rate.
Milano is committed to playing college hockey at Boston College in 2014-15 and should make an immediate impact of the Eagles. Still developing physically, he should become a well-rounded player under BC coach Jerry York and his staff and his skill set suggest he can be a consistent scorer at the pro level.
