WHL Network

 

Poprad, Slovakia – Hockey Canada announced today that forward Cody Glass of the Portland Winterhawks has been added to Team Canada’s roster for the 2017 IIHF World U-18 Championship.

Glass, 18, became available to Hockey Canada after the Winterhawks were eliminated from the 2017 WHL Playoffs by the Kelowna Rockets Friday night.

A 6-foot-2, 179-pound product of Winnipeg, Glass was ranked sixth among North American skaters by NHL Central Scouting in its final rankings ahead of the 2017 NHL Draft. The second-year forward led the Winterhawks in scoring during the 2016-17 regular season, tallying 94 points (32G-62A) in 69 games. He added another nine points (4G-5A) in 11 post-season contests as the wild-card Winterhawks upset the B.C. Division-champion Prince George Cougars in the first round before falling to the high-powered Rockets in the second round.

Glass joins seven other WHL players representing Canada at the tournament, including captain Jaret Anderson-Dolan (Spokane Chiefs) and goaltender Ian Scott (Prince Albert Raiders). Also representing the WHL at the event are defencemen Mark Rubinchik (Saskatoon Blades – Russia) and Vladislav Yeryomenko (Calgary Hitmen – Belarus).

In 137 career WHL regular season games, Glass has 121 points (42G-79A) to his credit. Over 15 career WHL playoff games, he has collected another 12 points (5G-7A).

Glass was originally a first-round pick (19th overall) of the Winterhawks at the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft.
