The Melville Millionaires and entire community are proud to see Carter in the “Final Four”. Good luck in the final voting !
Carter McKay, Melville Millionaires
McKay, a 2005 birth year, is the second-youngest regular (not affiliated) player in the league and has not looked out of place in the slightest while playing a gritty, heavy game as a forward on a young Millionaires squad.
As a local to Melville, Carter has been a regular participant and aid at numerous Melville Minor Hockey practices, and was an important part of the planning and execution of the “Melville Hometown Christmas Event”. He has a fan-favourite around the Horizon Credit Union Centre and is always willing to donate his time and energy to the many community events and fan-engagement opportunities in Melville.
“I was born and raised in Melville, and played all my minor hockey here,” he said.
“The thing I love most about our community is the support shown by the fans and the sponsorships. I also love the long-standing tradition of the Mils carried on by our city.”
