Munich, Germany - After a two-week tryout, Craig Millar is history. On Friday, the Munich Barons decided they had seen enough of the 25-year-old defenseman.

(as of Feb 19, 2005)

The Manitoba-native, who appeared in 114 NHL games for the Edmonton Oilers, Tampa Bay Lightning and Nashville Predators between 1996 and 2001 (8 goals, 14 assists), was invited to Munich by Barons sports director Max Fedra in mid-October after being released by Slovan Bratislava.

He couldn't convince Munich's coaching duo of Sean Simpson and Beppo Schlickenrieder during practice over the last two weeks, though.

No luck overseas

"He's a good defender," Fedra remarked, "but not the kind of player we are looking for."

After not being offered a new NHL contract this summer, Millar decided to head overseas. He started the 2000/01-season with Slovan Bratislava of Slovakia.

The disappointed Slovan club bade him farewell after only a month, though. The coaches were very disappointed with the performances of the highly-touted blueliner. Millar didn't manage to register a single point in six games.
