Winterhawks’ Glass named CHL Player of the Week
Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that Vegas Golden Knights prospect Cody Glass of the Portland Winterhawks is the CHL Player of the Week for the week ending November 26 after recording 12 points in four games including five goals and seven assists with a plus-minus rating of plus-7.
Glass produced four three-point performances last week for the Winterhawks who won all four games to open their Central Division road trip extending their winning-streak to 10 where they maintain second place in the WHL’s overall standings with a 19-4-0-0 record. He was named second star of three straight games including Tuesday with three assists in a 5-2 victory over the Kootenay ICE, Wednesday with a goal and two assists in a 7-3 win over the Calgary Hitmen, and Friday with two goals and one assist in a 6-2 win against the Red Deer Rebels. He finished his weekly efforts with another two-goal and one assist outing on Saturday in Edmonton where he earned first star recognition in the 3-0 triumph against the Oil Kings.
An 18-year-old from Winnipeg, MB, Glass is playing in his third season with the Winterhawks who chose him in the first round of the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft. He is currently sixth overall in WHL scoring with 16 goals and 28 assists for 44 points in 23 games and is riding a 10-game point-streak that coincides with the club’s win-streak. Glass was the first ever pick by the NHL’s Golden Knights at sixth overall and represented Team WHL at the 2017 CIBC Canada Russia Series this month recording a goal and an assist in two games.
The 6-foot-2, 177-pound forward was originally drafted by the Winterhawks in the first round, 19th overall, of the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft. In 160 WHL regular season games with the Winterhawks, Glass has scored 165 points (58G-107A), including 16 power play goals, two short-handed goals and nine game-winners.
Also considered for the award this week was 2018 NHL Draft prospect Serron Noel of the Oshawa Generals who scored four goals and four assists for eight points in three games, and defenceman Thomas Gregoire of the Sherbrooke Phoenix who scored three goals including two overtime winners plus three assists for six points in three games.
