History

2008-09: Scott Glennie scored 28 goals with 42 assists in 55 games in his second season with the WHL’s Brandon Wheat Kings – missing time in February after suffering a broken elbow. He returned at the end of the year and was with Brandon during the WHL playoffs when the Wheat Kings reached the semifinals. He scored 3 goals with 15 assists and was plus-ten with 11 penalty minutes in 12 playoff games. Ranked seventh amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting’s final rankings prior to the 2009 NHL Draft, Glennie was selected by Dallas in the first round (eighth overall).

2009-10: Glennie completed a third successful season with the Brandon Wheat Kings (WHL), setting career highs in goals (32), assists (57) and points (89). Playing on a line with prospects Brayden Schenn(PHI)  and Matt Calvert (CBJ), he was plus-36 as Brandon finished first in the East with the WHL’s second-best record. Brandon rolled through the playoffs before running into the Calgary Hitmen for the second straight season in the semifinals. Glennie scored 3 goals with 7 assists in 10 playoff games and was plus-two with 14 penalty minutes.

2010-11: Glennie made his pro hockey debut with Dallas AHL affiliate Texas in April following his fourth season with the WHL’s Brandon Wheat Kings. In four regular season games with the Texas Stars he was scoreless and minus-two with 2 penalty minutes. Glennie scored his first pro goal in the fourth game of Texas’ six-game playoff series with Milwaukee. The goal was his only point in the series and he finished an even plus/minus with 2 penalty minutes. Glennie’s junior career came to a disappointing end as the Wheat Kings slipped to third in the East Division and were eliminated by Medicine Hat in the first round of the playoffs. Glennie was the second-leading scorer for Brandon behind Ottawa prospect Mark Stone – scoring 35 goals with 56 assists in 70 games – and was plus-four with 58 penalty minutes. He and Stone shared the team lead in points (10) in the six-game playoff series with the Tigers

2011-12: Glennie made his NHL debut in Dallas’ final game of the season after spending his first pro season with the Stars’ AHL affiliate Texas. He was scoreless with 2 penalty minutes in 9:35 minutes of action in the 3-2 loss to St. Louis. Glennie scored 12 goals with 25 assists and was minus-8 with 26 penalty minutes in 70 games for Texas. The Texas Stars missed the AHL playoffs; finishing last in the West Division.

2012-13: Glennie was called up by Dallas in January but did not see any action and was once again hampered by injuries in his second pro season. In 37 regular season games with Texas in the AHL he scored 5 goals with 9 assists and was +4 with 10 penalty minutes. The Texas Stars finished first in the South Division and reached the second round in the playoffs. Glennie was primarily in a lower line, checking role in the playoffs and had no points and 8 penalty minutes in nine games.

2013-14: Two injuries limited Glennie to 50 regular season games in his third pro season with Dallas AHL affiliate Texas but he played a prominent role for the Stars’ during their championship run in the Calder Cup playoffs. He scored 15 goals with 13 assists and was +11 with 14 penalty minutes during the regular season. The Stars finished first in the West Division, taking an epic seven-game series with Toronto in the Western Conference finals before defeating St. John’s in five games in the Calder Cup finals. Glennie scored 6 goals with 4 assists and was +1 with 18 penalty minutes in 20 playoff games. He signed a one-year two-way contract with the Stars as a restricted free agent in July 2014. 

Talent Analysis

Glennie was viewed as a speedy forward and natural goal-scorer when the Stars took him with the eighth overall pick in the 2009 NHL Draft. He can play center and has a wicked shot with great straight line speed but has never produced goals at the pro level as he did playing with Brayden Schenn and Matt Calvert for Brandon in junior hockey. He is not a natural playmaker and his defensive play has been a work in progress during his AHL career. More of a technical player who is not combative or imposing despite his size and strength, he can play a perimeter game at times. His work rate and determination have improved and he is a productive forward at the AHL level but he is not likely to be the type of scorer envisioned when he was first drafted.

Future

Glennie attended training camp with the Stars but was placed on waivers at the beginning of the 2014-15 season and is in his fourth AHL season with Texas. A veteran presence in what is a younger lineup for the defending Calder Cup champions he has not played in an NHL game since making a cameo appearance in his rookie season. With several young scorers in the lineup for Dallas it is not likely that Glennie will ever become the top-six goal-scoring forward envisioned when he was drafted and he may not play a strong enough defensive game to play in a lower line role. His game makes him valuable to a team desperately seeking offensive production but he could end up playing out his career in the AHL or in Europe.

The churning out of quality prospects continues for the Dallas Stars organization. General manager Jim Nill will be looked upon to continue to bolster a very strong and deep organizational depth chart that has few glaring weaknesses at this point in time. With the Texas Stars (AHL) contingent set to defend a title and the Dallas team looking to make a bigger playoff push, the pressure is on this impressive group of youngsters.

Chock full of high-end prospects and support-level players as well, the Dallas Stars organization features an eclectic mix of young players eager to take another step towards a National Hockey League career. One need not look further than the first three players on their big board without realizing the diverse blend of talent in the system: an athletic goaltender, a fluid, young two-way defenseman and a burgeoning power forward. General manager Jim Nill and his staff must be brimming with pride and excitement as their prospect group embarks upon another developmental year. Read more»

Montreal hosted the 2009 NHL Draft. The draft was highlighted by super-skilled forwards John Tavares and Matt Duchene and massive Swedish defenseman Victor Hedman. All three have been exceptional NHL players. In fact, the first seven players selected have all been impactful NHL players to whatever degree. Unfortunately, first-time GM Joe Nieuwendyk was armed with the eighth pick.

With excellent scouting and drafting, the Stars have had a lot of inexperienced pros force their way into the Texas Stars lineup in recent years. With an experienced coach leading the charge, the Stars have been rather successful despite the youth.
