Seems like a long term project type. Headed to BC. Good puck skills, doesn't really seem like a "bluejackets pick". Good news is that the college path allows for extra seasoning while still keeping rights

Really good change of pace. Definitely a home run type pick, and if he pans out he could very well be one of the best players in the draft. He has unreal hands, which is something the team has lacked. Has pretty decent size at 6' and has the frame to pack on quite a bit of muscle.

I play with a kid who used to go up against Milano when he was still on Long Island. If he's half as good as I hear, you guys made a great choice.

See, kids on Long Island? If you stop driving like maniacs on 495, you could grow up to play professional hockey.

Congrats Sonny.

Worth noting he is listed throughout here on the Top 10 Combine lists:

In the video's I've watched I noticed the guy likes the backhand. I take that as a plus.

Ditto. Presumably strong shoulders and wrists.

TSN had him as..

Skating: 4/5
Ice Q: 5/5
Hands: 5/5
Shot: 4/5
Compete level: 5/5

He's one of very few people I saw get drafted today that had 3 5's and 2 4's from TSN.. and that includes Ekblad, Reinhart, etc.

hands could be a 6. Compete level the the only one I question since that was one area where scouts felt he needed to grow. Thats more on the defensive side, the kid loves offense so no problems there

As long as the kid isn't another Nikolai Zherdev, he looks like he could be a winner.

Well i mean he's going to BC and they seem to do nothing but breed winners. Would love to see a Milano/Reilly show down next year.

I have seen a few people do stick handling drills

like this kid, and one of them used to throw pucks into the net off the goalies back. His eye hand co ordination is off the charts.

Skating and compete are his 4 out of 5's? Can someone help me with the knock on his skating? Is he too upright? His speed seems elite

His back hand seems exceptional

Watched only one highlight video, but this kid's backhand looks deadly. He reminds me so much of Patrick Kane. I wonder what kind of numbers he would put up in juniors.

Only Patty Kane in 05/06, Kessel in 04/05, and Andy Hilbert in 98/99 have put up more points in a single season with the USNTDP than Milano. Milano tied with Eichel for 87 points this year. Kane and Kessel had 102 and 98 points, respectively, in their seasons. Milano has the record for most assists in a single season at 58.
