Frontier Division Star of the Week: Brandon Mills, forward, Helena Bighorns
Helena took wins in two of three games this past weekend as they picked up a road win in Billings before beating Glacier at home. Their lone loss was to division-leading Great Falls. Forward Brandon Mills, 19, was a key component in the two wins as he recorded a total of six points in the two wins. On Friday, the native of San Dimas, California, had a goal in a 4-3 road win in Billings. On Saturday, Mills (5’10/180) had the game-winning goal and four assists in an 8-0 win over Glacier. He was also a +6 on the weekend in three games. For the season Mills has 20 points in 16 games played. “Brandon is one of the most dedicated and hardest working players I have had the opportunity to coach. He was off to a slow start, but this weekend he broke out of his shell and we expect some big things the remainder of the season,” said Helena head coach Jon Jonasson.
