Talking with Tips general manager Garry Davidson, he was looking to add to Everett's 1996-born group. At one point the Tips were awash in 96-born forwards, but trades and attrition have shrunk that group, leaving Everett with just Ivan Nikolishin, Tyler Sandhu and Dawson Leedahl.
Davidson said Millar's best attributes are his size and his skating. Davidson also said Millar scored at lower levels, so there's the possibility Millar could develop more offensively. Millar played as a right wing for Saskatoon, but Davidson said he's capable of playing either on the wing or at center.
