Glennie Gets His Shot with Team WHL

Brandon Wheat Kings' centre Scott Glennie gets his chance to impress in the Subway Super Series Thursday night.

Glennie will suit up for Team WHL as they face the Russian Selects in Prince George to close out the six-game series.

For Glennie, it's a chance to showcase himself as he tries to earn an invitation to the Canadian Junior Team's Selection Camp for the second straight year.

"For the World Juniors, I think they look at lot at this game and you definitely want to stand out over other guys," says Glennie, who was also part of Team WHL a year ago, "I think I want to go there and just play how I can play and treat it like any other game."

After a slow start to the season, Glennie has 17 points in the last 10 games and five goals and 25 points in 22 games overall.

"When you get on streaks and start scoring goals, everything just goes your way and you start finding the back of the net," says Glennie, "It's finally starting to around a little bit for me here....definitely for me, confidence-wise, it feels a lot better starting to score goals."

Glennie, with eighth overall pick by Dallas in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, could play on a line with fellow Winnipeg product and longtime friend Cody Eakin on Thursday night.

Team WHL needs a regulation victory Thursday to allow the CHL teams to earn at least a tie in the series.

If that happens, then the winner of the Super Series would then be decided by a five-player shootout.

Chaff...Brayden Schenn will get a chance to visit some former teammates during this upcoming tenure with the AHL's Manchester Monarchs. The Monarchs schedule over the next week includes matchups with Bridgeport (Travis Hamonic), Springfield (Matt Calvert) and Albany (Alexander Urbom).
