January 2018 – Despite having another terrific season in his draft-plus-one year, Cody Glass was one of the final cuts from Team Canada’s World Junior selection camp.  Glass is still eligible to play for Canada in the 2019 tournament and there is a decent chance that he’ll be looked upon as a two-way pivot if he is unable to stick with the Golden Knights and returned to the WHL in 2018-19.  Glass has continued his strong play averaging two points-per-game after being sent back to the Portland Winterhawks and will look to improve on his point totals where he currently sits in the top-10 of WHL scoring. Mason Black

March 2017 – Perhaps one of the most underrated or undervalued prospects in the 2017 draft class. Glass has good size, and can impact the game both offensively and defensively. Glass has had a breakout season in his draft year more than tripling his offensive production and assuming the role of first line center for the Portland Winterhawks. Glass had a strong showing at the Top Prospects Game in Quebec, but has no international experience for Canada and is relatively unknown outside the WHL as a result. He has seen marked improvements in his skating and strength adding about ten pounds this season. Glass thinks the game fast, has a high hockey IQ and has great vision combined with soft hands and excellent puck skills. His compete level is elite and the main development opportunity for Glass is to continue to add strength and mass to his projectable 6-2 frame. Don’t be surprised to see Glass selected in the top ten of the 2017 NHL draft. If he goes later than that we could look back on this draft and say what a steal.  Peter Harling
