MacMillan leaves St. Cloud State, says playing time was an issue

St. Cloud State sophomore forward Mitch MacMillan has left the team and a report in Tuesday’s St. Cloud Times says his departure had to do with ice time.

MacMillan had played in 14 of SCSU’s 20 games thus far, but was a healthy scratch in the last three.

“I wasn’t happy there with my playing time and I decided to move on to further my hockey career,” MacMillan said to the Times.

He said he might transfer or start a pro career.

MacMillan was on the Dean’s List last school year and said that the move is not related to academics.

This season, MacMillan had no goals and five assists, while as a freshman, he had four goals among six points in 28 games.
