Condors rookie forward Logan MacMillan, a 2007 first-round draft pick of Anaheim, has been sent home by the Ducks after being arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.
MacMillan, 20, was arrested by Bakersfield Police around 2 a.m. Monday morning in the 3600 block of California Avenue and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and and driving without a license.
"He has gone home for personal reasons," David McNab, vice president of hockey operations for the Ducks, said on Thursday. "That's our comment."
MacMillan, of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, was assigned to the Condors by Anaheim just before the season started. He missed las Saturday's game against Ontario due to a back spasm but had been playing well before then, Condors coach Marty Raymond said.
"The last 5-6 games he was a very, very good power forward for us," he said. "He's a good kid."
MacMillan, 6-foot-1, 205 pounds, had six points in 30 games, having played in every game until last Saturday.
As for the possibility of MacMillan returning to the Condors this season, McNab said: "We're not putting any time frame on it."
The loss of MacMillan adds to an evolving roster as the Condors have had several players sent up to the American Hockey League this season, including three defensemen. Bakersfield is playing with five D-men, one short of the usual six used in a game.
As for forwards, the Condors, have enough, even with the departure of MacMillan.
"We have lots of forwards, that's the good news, but you can never have enough," Raymond said.
The Condors will have one more forward today as Matt McCue, who has been assigned to the team from the American Hockey League by Anaheim, is expected to arrive. However, Raymond said the earliest McCue might see game action is Sunday.
"He's been driving (from Winnipeg, Manitoba) for a few days so we'll see how he is," Raymond said.
