It looks like the Dallas Stars top forward prospect is going to make the jump to the AHL. Multiple sites and sources are pointing and using a press release by the Brandon Wheat Kings, who today on their website reported that Scott Glennie is making the jump to the AHL after the Wheat Kings were knocked out of in the first round of the playoffs. Glennie reportedly will join the Texas Stars for the end of their regular season and playoffs. This should definitely be something to watch and monitor.
Glennie of course was the 9th overall pick in the 1st round of the 2009 NHL draft by Dallas. While some have been upset that many other top 15 picks from that draft have started to bud into star players and Glennie has yet to, the Stars have also not rushed him at all and I still think he becomes a top-6 forward for the Stars. While playing mostly center for Brandon this season, he also plays right wing and is a right-handed shot, something the Stars could definitely use being that this team’s only true right wingers currently are an aging Langenbrunner and a 4th line grinder in Segal. This season Glennie finished with a career high 91 points and has been a consistent scoring force for the Wheat Kings. He was there with good players and then this season with one of the weaker teams he has been with, but in 252 games over the years he has totaled 308 points. Also in 39 career playoff games Glennie pocketed 39 points.
There is not a formal report by the Texas or Dallas Stars yet, but all signs point to Scott joining the team down in Austin to gain experience and make the jump to the next level. He should start next season with the Texas Stars. Here is the link to the report by the Wheat Kings: Story
