Portland Winterhawks forward Cody Glass scored the overtime winner in Game One of the Western Conference Final in the Calder Cup Playoffs for the Chicago Wolves as they defeated the San Diego Gulls. In 12 playoff games, Glass has five goals and four assists for the Wolves and has played a significant role in their run so far. Glass is eligible to return to the Winterhawks next season for his overage season but it seems safe to say that he’ll be turning pro in the Vegas Golden Knights organization. In 239 WHL games with the Winterhawks, Glass has 94 goals and 198 assists.
