The Chilliwack Chiefs are thrilled to announce that 2001-born forward Connor Milburn has secured his NCAA future with a commitment to the Lake Superior State Lakers. Milburn, a 6’3” centre from Kamloops, BC has really improved his 200-foot game and his explosiveness since his rookie year last season. He is counted on in many areas of the Chiefs game, including the penalty kill, important face-offs, and match-ups against opponents’ top lines.
“We are all very proud of Connor earning himself a division 1 scholarship to Lake Superior State. He has worked himself into being a very important part of our lineup. He does a lot of the little things that allow your team to succeed in all three zones.” Said Chiefs Head Coach and General Manager Brian Maloney. “Connor is a quiet leader that has a great attitude towards the game and his teammates, we couldn’t be more proud.”
When asked about becoming a Laker, Milburn spoke to the fit being integral in his decision-making process. “I am super excited to be a part of a program as great as theirs. They’ve got great facilities where I feel I will be able to keep expanding my game and their style of play suits mine extremely well. Thank you to my parents, and coaches for pushing me to where I am today.” Said the Chiefs forward.
