Red Wings to honour Dwight McMillan

Comments

Dwight McMillan poses with with the Royal Bank Cup in 2005. The Red Wings pulled of a Cinderella story win of the event they hosted. The Wings defeated Camrose 3-2 in the final game.

Dwight McMillan is a hockey coaching legend. He picked up career win number 1,000 in early February 2008, putting him in an elite group of company with NHL's Scotty Bowman and the OHL's Brian Kilrea as the only coaches in the history of hockey to win that many contests.

McMillan was in his 25th full season with the Wings when he reached the milestone. He has won 40 or more games in a season on nine occasions, and the Wings with McMillan behind the bench have captured six SJHL championships.

On December 30, the Weyburn Red Wings will be hosting a Dwight McMillan night as the Wings set to take on the rival Estevan Bruins at Crescent Point Place.

Immediately following the game, there will be a meet and greet with McMillan at the Weyburn Curling Rink.

McMillan's Red Wing history dates back to the very first Red Wing team of 1961, of which Dwight was a rookie player.

The Red Wings, with McMillan and Rumball running the on-ice operations, won a national Junior 'A' championship in 1984; multiple trips to the national championship tournament, with an RBC Cup win in 2005.
