A recommendation by Tavis MacMillan, a U.S. amateur scout for
Atlanta and a former Nanooks head coach, to the Thrashers front-office
personnel led to the Fairbanks native receiving an invitation to the
camp on July 8-14 in the Atlanta suburb of Duluth, Ga.
"We were looking for some goaltenders for the camp and I recommended
Wylie," MacMillan said Thursday from Rosemount, Minn., where he now
lives with his family. "He's a competitive kid and he'll go in and work
hard, and that's what you want in those situations. I thought he'd be a
great fit for the camp."
