College Hockey:
Michigan freshman Milne leaves Wolverines, joins OHL’s Attack

Michigan freshman forward Daniel Milne has left the school to play for the Owen Sound Attack of the Ontario Hockey League.

Milne played in seven games this year for the Wolverines without recording a point.

“Daniel Milne informed us today that he is leaving the Michigan hockey program,” Michigan coach Red Berenson said in a statement. “While we are disappointed with his decision, it is important to note that he is leaving in good academic standing.”

Milne, originally Owen Sound’s third-round pick in the 2010 OHL draft, is the third current NCAA freshman to leave for the OHL in just over a week, following Denver defenseman Dakota Mermis and Nebraska-Omaha goalie Anthony Stolarz, who both left their teams for the London Knights.

    waiting for some higher profile kids to leave now too. Danny is a good kid, but didn’t want to platoon. His habits on the ice and off were good, but his execution was not impactful.


    I think maybe I’d want be on one of the first lifeboats leaving the foundering ship known as Michigan’s season, too,

      I suppose you would, but after 25+ years of success, one season isn’t too hard to handle for Michigan fans and players who believe that “those who stay will be champions”.
