It was a productive week for NHL Draft eligible forward Cody Glass.

Glass recorded five goals and eight points in four games en route to being named Western Hockey League Player of the Week on Monday.

The 17-year-old had two goals and two assists in a first-star performance in a 5-4 win against the Prince George Cougars last Wednesday, and had two goals and was named first star in a 4-2 victory against the Spokane Chiefs on Friday. He was held without a point in a 6-3 loss against the Seattle Thunderbirds, but was named first star with a goal and an assist in a 4-3 win against the Everett Silvertips on Sunday.

It’s the second time this season Glass has been recognized as WHL Player of the Week. The first came for the week ending October 9, 2016.

Glass, 30th in Future Considerations’ Winter ranking for the 2017 NHL Draft,  is sixth in WHL scoring with 93 points (32 goals, 61 assists).
