Red Lake Miners veteran Spencer Milne has made his college destination choice, one that will take the 20-year old south of the border. After three years in a Miners uniform Milne will next lace his skates for the Concordia University Falcons in Mequon, Wisconsin.
Milne began his Junior career with the Miners in the 2017-18 season quickly establishing himself as one of the top players in the SIJHL. After a 47-point rookie campaign the 6’6″ forward from Edmonton came back the following season posting 52 points.
Last season, which was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Milne scored a career-best 24 goals and 49 points in 47 games under first year head coach Geoff Walker. He was honored by the SIJHL being named to the all-league second team.
“As an organization we are very proud a veteran has committed to play NCAA hockey,” said Walker. “Spencer was a huge part of our success last year and we wish him all the best moving forward!”
Wrapping his three years as a Miner with 148 points in 136 regular season games Milne leaves the program as the second leading scorer in franchise history. His 88 assists are tops among team scorers.
Milne is the fifth player from Red Lake Miners to commit to play college hockey next season.
