To start off, Kieran Millan was just called up to Lake Erie for reasons no one is either willing or able to explain. Millan earned high praise from Coach Roy during training camp and has defeated all 3 opponents faced so far for the beloved Cutthroats, earning CHL Goalie of the Week honors right off the bat.
