  • Canucks Waive McMillan

    News: Brandon McMillan was placed on waivers Saturday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.ca reports.
    Analysis: Brandon McMillan continued to practice with the Canucks after the transaction was announced, so there's a chance he could remain with the club even after he clears waivers Sunday.

  • Canucks Put In Claim On McMillan

    News: Brandon McMillan was claimed off waivers by the Canucks on Thursday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
    Analysis: Brandon McMillan will give the Canucks an extra healthy body at forward while Nick Bonino (foot) and Brad Richardson (ankle) remain unavailable. Don't expect the Canucks to use McMillan in any more than third- or fourth-line role, where he had slotted in during his stay with Coyotes. The 24-year-old has produced only three points in 50 games this season.
  • Coyotes Put McMillan On Waivers Again

    News: The Coyotes placed Brandon McMillan on waivers Wednesday,
    Analysis: The team previously placed Brandon McMillan on waivers earlier in January, but he ended up sticking around with the Coyotes after clearing. Even if he does stay with Arizona this time around, McMillan won't have an inside track on a regular lineup spot. The team claimed Mark Arcobello from the Penguins on Wednesday, and he'll effectively replace McMillan in the lineup for the games to come.
  • Coyotes Place McMillan On Waivers

    News: The Coyotes placed Brandon McMillan on waivers Tuesday, Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com reports.
    Analysis: It isn't immediately obvious who will take Brandon McMillan's spot on Arizona's roster, but that should become clear soon. The Coyotes will likely look for improved offensive production from whoever they call up to take the 24 year old wingers place, as McMillan only registered a mere three points through 38 games with Arizona this season. He will head to AHL Portland if he's not claimed by another team.
  • Coyotes' McMillan Finally Scores First

    News: It took him 29 games, but Brandon McMillan finally scored his first goal of the year Tuesday in a 2-1 overtime win against the Oilers.
    Analysis: He'd managed all of two points and a minus-9 rating while playing depth-line minutes in the first 28 games of the year, and he only skated 8:13 in Tuesday's game despite it going to overtime. So needless to say, there's not much fantasy upside in Brandon McMillan right now.
  • Coyotes' McMillan Makes Final Roster

    News: Brandon McMillan was able to grab one of the Coyotes' final roster spots, Sarah McLellan of The Arizona Republic reports.
    Analysis: Last season, he was able to turn a mid-season call-up into regular minutes with Arizona, where he played in 22 games and scored 2 goals and 4 assists. Brandon McMillan was bothered by a groin injury earlier in training camp but seems to have found his stride on a line with Joe Vitale and B.J. Crombeen during the preseason. Look for his offensive numbers to increase from last season but he won't have much of a fantasy impact even if he does play more games this season.
  • Coyotes' McMillan Day-To-Day

    News: Brandon McMillan is not playing Monday due to a lower body injury, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.
    Analysis: The lower body issue is reportedly not serious, so Brandon McMillan should be able to return to action at some point this week, and is expected to be fully healthy for the regular season.
