Right winger John MacMillan played with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings in the 60s. He was best known as a dangerous scorer in college and a reliable two-way forward in the Western league.

Born in Lethbridge, Alberta, MacMillan excelled on the WCJHL's Lethbridge Native Sons before attending the University of Denver. After scoring 30 goals in 1959-60 he was voted on to the WCHA second all-star team. In 1960-61, the young forward scored three goals and was a solid contributor on a checking line with Bob Pulford and Ron Stewart. He started the next season in the AHL but was recalled half way through the schedule to serve as a utility forward. That spring MacMillan played three playoff games while helping Toronto win its first of three straight Stanley Cups.

MacMillan was primarily as farmhand the next year and fired 22 goals for the Rochester Americans of the AHL. He played the first month of the 1963-64 season in Hogtown before the Red Wings picked him up on waivers. He split the remainder of the schedule between the NHL and the AHL's Pittsburgh Hornets then played four playoff games as the Wings reached the finals. After playing three games for Detroit the next season, MacMilllan was a regular in the minors until he retired in 1971. The tricky veteran played his last five pro seasons with the WHL's San Diego Gulls.
