Right Wing Scott Glennie was re-signed to a one-year two-way contract by the Dallas Stars, the organization announced Thursday. Per club policy, the terms and conditions of the deal were not disclosed.
Glennie, 23, was selected by the Dallas Stars with the 9th overall pick in the 2009 entry draft, and has since spent the last three seasons with AHL affiliate and Calder Cup champions Texas Stars. Glennie has notched a grand total of 32 goals and 47 assists in his 161 AHL game career, with a career high 15 goals and 13 assists in 2013-14, complemented by a 6 goal, 4 assist performance in the postseason
The 6-foot-1, 195 pound forward made his professional debut with the Texas Stars on April 6th, 2011, after playing the last four seasons with Brandon Wheat Kings of the Western Hockey League in which Glennie posted point totals of 58,70,89, & 91 in the four full campaigns.
Scott Glennie is an outstanding young winger, but this contract says a lot about his current state with the Dallas Stars. The one-year contract suggest a loss of interest in Glennie's development. This is mainly due to the very, very deep Stars forward lineup, along with the emergence of AHL Rookie of the Year Curtis McKenzie & and the versatile and always reliable Brett Ritchie, along with last months signing of F Patrick Eaves, Glennie may never get his chance at the NHL.
Only time will tell the story of what will truly happen with Scott Glennie, but I can assure you one thing, a breakout year is necessary for the future success of the youthful Canadian.
