Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Mike Millar
Right-winger Mike Millar was a gifted goal scorer who was a part time NHL player in the 1980s and '90s. He put up impressive numbers in junior, the minors, and Europe but was unable to get open consistently in the NHL.

The native of St. Catharines, Ontario starred with his local midget team before joining the Brantford Alexanders of the OHL. After scoring 50 goals for the team in 1983-84, he was taken 110th overall by the Hartford Whalers at the NHL Entry Draft. Millar was returned to junior and led the OHL with 66 goals while skating for the Hamilton Steelhawks. He turned pro in 1986 after spending a year with the Canadian National Team.

Millar showed flashes of skill during his two years with the Whalers then joined the Washington Capitals. After scoring 47 goals for the AHL's Baltimore Skipjacks in 1988-89, the talented forward was named to the league's second all-star team. After toiling briefly with the Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs, Millar headed overseas. He starred in Germany and Switzerland for several years and counted 66 goals in 62 games in 1993-94 when he helped the Kassel Huskies gain promotion to the Bundesliga.
