"Melville was a great place for me to play my Junior hockey, it was really close to my hometown where I always have gotten a ton of support and my billet family helped me more than I can possibly say and I'm just thankful for all the fans, supporters, sponsors and organization for giving me the chance to wear the Mils uniform, it helped me become not only a better player but a better person."

Entz also added he would like to thank  the Mils staff and personnel who did a lot for him his 3 seasons.

"When things were tough the coaches were there to help to make you a better player and when things were going well they helped me move forward".

The entire Melville Millionaires organization would like to thank Colby for his time as a Millionaire and also congratulate him on his commitment & wish him nothing but the best going forward.
