Future Watch: Cody Glass Rookie Hockey Cards, Golden Knights – Cody Glass was selected by the Las Vegas Golden Knights with the sixth overall selection in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. The Knights were a new franchise and he was the first player chosen in the history of the franchise, excluding the expansion draft.
This 6-2 center could be the face of the franchise for Vegas the same way that he was for the Portland Winterhawks in the WHL. 2015-16 was his first season in Portland and he potted 10 goals and 27 points in 65 games plus he got playoff experience.
In 2016-17, he blew up netting 32 goals and 94 points in 69 games. He had nine points in 11 playoff games as well. That year he played in the CHL Top Prospects game.
In 2018-19, he had a knee injury. Before that injury he had a nice season going and when he returned it was special. 15 goals and 69 points in 38 games! He did get into one playoff game as well. In the same season, he played in six games in Chicago for the Wolves the team’s AHL affiliate. He had three goals and five points. The team advanced in the playoffs and in 22 postseason games, he had seven goals and 15 points. The talented pivot turned 20 during that run. His knee was back up to speed and he ended the season on a high note, even though he was a part of a triple-OT game that they were on the losing side of the ledger.
He scored his first NHL goal in his NHL debut!
