Brandon McMillan (WHL) Earns Team Canada Roster Spot...

Brandon McMillan of the Kelowna Rockets has earned an opportunity to represent Canada at the 2010 World Junior Championship in Saskatchewan.

The 19-year-old native of Delta, B.C. has battled a foot injury and a brief illness this season, but has rebounded with some stellar play. The Anaheim Ducks third-round selection at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, McMillan is a speedy, versatile forward. An impact player in Kelowna, the 6', 195-pounder has collected nine goals and 21 assists for the Rockets this season in 27 games.

We spoke with McMillan prior to the Rockets' departure on their current six-game road trip through the East Division of the WHL. Midway through the trip, McMillan left the team to attend the National Junior Team selection camp in Regina.
