He was a second round selection of the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, 31st overall, at the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. He was a member of the 2007 Memorial Cup winning Vancouver Giants team, and was named a tournament all-star on defence.
Mikkelson was born in Regina, Saskatchewan, and raised in St. Albert, Alberta, where he played Bantam hockey for the St. Albert Raiders of the Alberta Bantam Hockey League in 2001-02 and was a 6th round pick in the 2002 WHL Bantam Draft.
Mikkelson played his first two seasons in the WHL with the Portland Winter Hawks. Midway through his third season with the club (the 2005–06 season), he was dealt to the Vancouver Giants. Mikkelson contributed 29 points in 69 games in the 2006–07 season, a season in which the Giants hosted and won the 2007 Memorial Cup. On November 30, 2006, Brendan was signed to a three-year entry level contract with the Ducks.
Mikkelson's father, Bill, played in the NHL for the Los Angeles Kings, New York Islanders and Washington Capitals in the 1970s, while his sister, Meaghan, plays on the Canadian national women's team and won a gold medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics.
