The captain of the Portland Winterhawks, Cody Glass has been named the Western Hockey League's Player of the Week for the week ending on December 2nd.
The Winnipeg product put up two goals and eight points in just two WHL contests for Portland last week, including his fourth career five-point game. This past Saturday, the 2017 first round selection of the Vegas Golden Knights assisted three times in Portland's 8-2 victory over Spokane.
However, it was on Sunday in which the 6-foot-2, 185-pound centreman really left his mark on the competition. After helping the Winterhawks put up eight goals the night before, Glass and Co. scored another 10 times on Sunday, helping boost Portland's goals for/against differential in the process. The shifty forward potted two goals himself, before adding another three assists to cap off a very successful weekend for the Hawks.
Glass' eight points helped the 19-year-old extend his point streak to a whopping 14 games. He now boasts 11 goals and 51 points through 24 regular season contests, operating at over two points-per-game thus far in 2018-19. Glass currently leads the WHL with 19 power play assists, and sits in fourth place league-wide with 51 total points on the year.
