Flyers sign Mason Millman to a Three-Year ELC
Drafted 103rd overall in the 2019 NHL entry draft, 19-year old Mason Millman is finally a professional hockey player.
In the 2019-2020 season, Millman led defenseman on his team with 13G-31A-44P in 58 games. As a defenseman that’s pretty impressive. His smooth skating ability allows him to join the rush and make things happen. In 2018 Millman received praise, being recognized as Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League (GOJHL) Most Outstanding Rookie Defenseman. Adding on top of that he was also a Rookie All-Star Team selection.
I’ve tried to attend every development camp for the past 3-4 years. It’s sort of a tradition me and fellow co-host Danny Diemer have come up with within the past couple years. The latest one, before the world changed, Millman attended. I was watching the obvious prospects like Morgan Frost, Bobby Brink, Isaac Ratcliffe, Wade Allison, even Cam York. Those guys are so talented and skilled, but I couldn’t help to notice Millman, who can skate like the wind at 6’1, has terrific vision and can find the open man at any given point. He needs to add some weight and get stronger but that’ll come as he gets older.
In his three years with the Saginaw Spirit, Millman put up a respectable 16G-53A-69P in 130 games. He helped his Spirit team in the 2018-2019 playoffs putting up 2G-3A-5P in 13 games. He’s an exciting prospect, who just adds to the defensive prospect pool. Millman is also the first of the 2019 class to sign his ELC.
Welcome to Philadelphia, Mason.
