Glencross combines grit and physical play with some scoring touch. He led the Seawolves in both scoring (21G, 13A - 34 pts) and penalty minutes (79). If you want a more detailed report I'll be happy to put one together for you later.

This time of year many NHL teams' scouts, and even some GMs are checking out the NCAA crop (drafted or not). They like to see him them in post-season since it's close to FA time and the draft. Also, the level of competition/intensity of play is higher than in the regular season for obvious reasons.

Alaska-Anchorage was one of the biggest surprises of the WCHA Final Five. No one thought they would be there, let alone beat Wisconsin to get there. Glencross and especially senior goaltender Chris King were two of the best Seawolves players in the tourney.
