Glass named to Team WHL for 2017 Canada Russia Series

Portland Winterhawks center Cody Glass has been named to Team WHL, which will compete against Team Russia in the upcoming 2017 CHL Canada Russia Series.

Glass is one of seven NHL first-round draft picks selected for Team WHL. Glass, who was taken sixth overall by the Vegas Golden Knights this past June in the NHL Entry Draft, currently leads the Winterhawks in scoring with four goals, 13 assists for 17 points in nine games played. Glass is the first Winterhawks player selected to participate in the Canada Russia Series since Nic Petan in 2014.

Team WHL is made up of the top Canadian players in the Western Hockey League. Each of the three CHL member Leagues assembled a selection committee, working closely with Hockey Canada, to select the players for this year’s series.

Team WHL will face team Russia in Game 1 of the 2017 CIBC Canada Russia Series in Moose Jaw, Sask., on Monday, November 6th, before continuing on to Swift Current, Sask., for Game 2 on Tuesday, November 7th. The six-game series features regional league teams of Canadian National Junior Team candidates competing against the Russian National Junior Team. For the fourth straight season, the event will open with two games in the WHL.
