History

2006-07: Glass scored 7 goals with 10 assists in 18 games in an injury-filled junior year at Nobles & Greenough in the New England prep school league. Glass attended USA Hockey’s Select 17 Player Development Camp.

2007-08: Glass had a breakout season as a senior at Nobles & Greenough; scoring 27 goals with 23 assists in 29 games. He was named to the NEPSIHA All-New England team and committed to playing college hockey at Boston University.

2008-09: Glass started his college career as a freshman at Boston University. He saw limited ice time on a Terriers team that featured a deep group of veteran forwards before suffering a season-ending concussion in mid-February. Boston University captured the Hockey East regular season and tournament titles as well as an NCAA championship. Glass scored his first NCAA goal in a November 16 game with Northeastern and had a goal and assist in BU’s 4-1 win over Merrimack on January 16. In 15 games, he scored 2 goals with 1 assist and was +3 with 2 PIM.

2009-10: Glass struggled as a sophomore at Boston University as the Terriers slipped to the middle of the pack in Hockey East and missed the NCAA tournament. Glass scored his only goal of the season on February 20 in a 2-1 win over Providence. For the season he scored 1 goal with 1 assist and was -5 with 14 PIM in 24 games.

2010-11: Glass skated in fifteen games for Boston University as a junior before being dismissed from the team in mid-January. Glass scored 2 goals with 3 assists and was +1 with 6 PMs for the Terriers. Boston University finished third in Hockey East but failed to receive an NCAA tournament bid after falling to Northeastern in the Hockey East Quarterfinals.

 

Talent Analysis

Glass is highly-skilled player with the ability to beat defenders one-on-one. He can stick handle in traffic to keep control of the puck and is also a strong passer who supports the players around him. He is tall enough to be successful at the next level but has not yet demonstrated the strength to win pucks in tight spaces and can be physically taken off the puck. His production at the college level has not yet matched the expectations for a player with his considerable technical and skating talent.

 

 

Future

After being dismissed from Boston University team for “violating team rules”, Glass has transferred to Carleton University in Ottawa. He’ll have two years of eligibility and will try to find his offensive game there. He’s lacked consistency and durability, and it’s unlikely he’ll ever make an impact at the pro level or even get a pro contract.
