Logan MacMillan, LW

Shoots: R

Weight: 189

Born: 1989-7-5

Hometown: Charlottetown, PEI

Drafted: 2007 1st round 19th overall – Anaheim Ducks

 

 

 

 

 

Observations:

 

July 2012 – Calgary chose to cut ties with Logan as he continued to fail to prove his worth in minor pro. Jason Banks

 

March 2012 – MacMillan is a former first round draft pick of the Ducks who is spending more time fighting and try to show his offensive skills. Plays an aggressive and physical game although has yet to show any production at the pro level. Not only has the former “Q” player in junior failed to show true offensive output in the NHL, but also in the AHL and currently finds himself in the ECHL with Utah.

 

Fantasy Outlook: D-

MacMillan has been fighting more in the pros than putting pucks in the back of the net.

Fantasy Prospects Report Notes (Any FPR’s released in the last 18 months will not be listed here):

 

2009 Fantasy Prospects Report:

Another season, another injury. MacMillan has the talent, but so many injuries early in his career are stalling his development. How many steps forward can he take when he plays 45 games a year, while his peers play 70? He’s three years away from making the NHL roster and six years away from reaching his upside – assuming he ever plays enough games to get to that upside. Which he won’t. Worth keeping on your radar in case things change on the health front, but too frustrating to own right now.

Upside: #2 C, (15-50-65+)

Certainty (NHLer; Upside): 60%; 25%

 

2008 Fantasy Prospects Report:

In the theater world, uttering the word “MacBeth” while staging a performance of the play is said to curse the production. Does Tim Connolly possess a similar evil power? It looks that way. Logan MacMillan was favorably compared to the aforementioned oft-injured center in the ’07 DobberHockey Mock Draft. In 2007-08, no less than a concussion, a charley horse, and finally “extreme exhaustion” limited the pivot to just 46 games. Lest one think this a fluke, in three years of major junior, the 19th overall pick in ’07 has never played a full season. The original comp still stands: MacMillan’s potential is quite high. But so are the chances he becomes a Band-Aid Boy All-Star. Watch him closely and re-evaluate if he suffers another major injury. He’ll challenge for a spot in the fall of 2010.

Upside: #2 C, (15-50-65+)

Certainty (NHLer; Upside): 60%; 25%
