I think Hischier, Patrick, Glass, Vilardi and Heiskanen are all pretty equal. They are my top5 and in a tier of their own the way I see it.

The winterhawks weren't exactly an offensive powerhouse.

Imagine what kind of production Glass will put up next year after a summer of hard training..getting quicker, filling out his 6'2 frame with another 5 lbs of muscle ...wow. Then surround him with a few more offensive type guys for him to play with.
wouldn't be surprised to see 40 goals, 110pts in 70 games.

My guess is he doesn't play 70 games after the world juniors

I would tend to agree, I don't see any meaningful difference between Hischier and Patrick and Glass/Villardi. Good year to be at #5.

Well, Nico Hischier is the clear best player in this draft for me - but Cody Glass very well may be ahead of Nolan Patrick at this point.

Yeah. I have Hischier #1 as well. Think he's the best player and probably the player that is the most likely to reach elite status. I like Glass a lot and have him ahead of Patrick too, but he's also the most raw player of the five, but his ceiling is really high. Could be a Scheifele type player when it's all said and done, but it will take him some time to get there. Vilardi is a personal favorite of mine, just love his all-around package. He's dynamite in the offensive zone and with his size and puck protection he could be a very valuable player too. They're all pretty interchangeable and it just comes down to who you like or what you like in a player.

I see Scheifele/Getzlaf/Johansen in Glass. That calibre of centreman - 6'2'' with those puck skills, playmaking, right hand shot. It's fine if it takes him 2 or three years...just the time when Juolevi, Boeser, Demko etc. should be coming into their own as well.

Yeah, I definitely see some Getzlaf in his game too. Could be a great player, think he'd be a very good fit in the Western Conference.

Patrick is a year older, not sure you can compare them to each other.

I'm a Canucks fan so the rule is I can't get too excited about a certain player because chances are they won't get him. Otherwise, I'm really, really keen on getting this guy!

In hockey circles, Patrick would have played a year ahead of Glass and not playing against each other until Glass joined the WHL and Patrick was already in the league for a year. In hockey circles that is another year of development for Patrick.

And not only that, but Glass's recent development in terms of scoring has been much more impressive. If you look at it like this:

Glass:
u17: 27p in 65 gp
u18: 94p in 69gp

Patrick:
u17: 56p in 55gp
u18: 102p in 62gp

You see that while Patrick's u18 season scoring was stronger than Glass's, Glass improved a lot more for that season. And when we consider that Patrick's last season was essentially a miss and wonder how much Glass could improve, it's certainly something to think about.

I'm divided myself whether it's a style thing or a physicality thing. Because he's not a dynamic skater either, in quickness or agility (though in stride off the rush he's solid) so he can't just skate around guys to control the play on the puck. So, if he wants to play a more puck dominant game, he needs to play more of a grinding physical game, not afraid to play with guys on him. But right now he just gets knocked off pucks too easily and dishes it off under pressure to do the give-and-go stuff. He's so scrawny right now though, maybe when his body develops he'll feel more comfortable doing this. Or it's just his style.
This is why the Getzlaf comparison should get thrown out the window.

Would you say Glass plays a more soft game?

While Vilardi plays a more power game down low.

Anyone else think he's got a bit of Jeff Carter in him. Opportunistic around the net , good shot, plays both ways.

Jeff Carter is significantly stronger on the puck and more powerful than Glass. I also think Carter's shot is definitely better.

I think there are a lot of similarities in his game to Paul Stastny. He certainly has the potential to exceed the St Louis version of Stastny but even if he could just match it that's a very good pick in the 5-10 range.

Vilardi is certainly better in the slot and around the net. Glass while not the strongest on the puck, still uses his size/length well to avoid stick checks. Getzlaf isn't quite the comparison I'd use, something closer to Johansen IMO.

With the 2017 NHL Draft only weeks away from taking place, the attention given to many of this year's top draft-eligible players has reached an all-time high. Several players featured at the top of the draft class have already received some degree of nationwide exposure through numerous television broadcasts of their games. Aside from a brief appearance at the 2017 U18 World Championships in Slovakia, Glass has been given less airtime than some of the others. Consequently, I felt that it would be worthwhile to develop a scouting package focused on Glass so that people could have an extended opportunity to analyze his game and formulate their own opinions.

Glass has risen on many draft lists throughout the 2016-17 season. After scoring only 27 points in 2015-16, Glass broke out with 32 goals, 62 assists, 94 points in 69 games with the Portland Winterhawks in 2016-17 on a line with teammates Skyler McKenzie and Keegan Iverson.

Cody Glass is a playmaker first and foremost above all else. Standing at 6'2'', 178 lbs and hailing from a family of tall gentlemen, many believe that he may not be finished growing; he would also benefit from becoming heavier, as currently he tends to be pushed off of the puck too easily. He uses his edges fairly well and is a patient player. When he has the puck, he knows exactly who he can pass the puck to, and possesses the vision to identify open teammates and execute skilled passes. His acceleration is average and his first two steps don't get him very far, although he can gain adequate speed to race for a loose puck.

His ability to anticipate is terrific. He gauges where to be to put pressure on the opposition and strip the puck away or beat them to it. In the offensive zone, he tends to move around looking to make himself available and to support the puck along the boards, although his favorite spot to be when his team is set up is in the slot as a shooter and at the goal line. Any time he has the puck, he considers his options and demonstrates poise with the puck. He has a good shot. If there is one complaint to be made about his game, it's that he lacks physicality and isn't aggressive in the physical sense; on the forecheck, he relies on smart, active positioning and posturing to beat opponents to the puck, and he has a long enough reach to pull it away from them and move it while under pressure.

One might also conclude that his puck skills are a little bit lacking compared to Gabriel Vilardi and Casey Mittelstadt. He is not as shifty individually as those two; he is more of a simple passer and shooter than a dangler. One would not be wrong to characterize his game as "vanilla."

Not everyone has had the opportunity to watch this player, nor other draft-eligible players. Therefore, I have developed a comprehensive scouting package based on Glass' 2016-17 season: all shifts from six games played between January and March 2017. Nobody is expected to watch all of it, although you are welcome to watch as much footage as you like. I have simply prepared the footage for those who are curious enough to examine the player's game, and I have offered a large enough sample size to give people an accurate depiction of the way he plays. The presentation is divided into six segments -- one segment for each match. You may watch all of it, or just some of it.

The games featured here (and their corresponding start times in the video) are:

(0:15) January 13, 2017: Portland Winterhawks vs Spokane Chiefs
(23:52) January 17, 2017: Portland Winterhawks @ Prince George Cougars
(46:56) February 11, 2017: Portland Winterhawks @ Seattle Thunderbirds
(1:10:02) February 17, 2017: Portland Winterhawks vs Red Deer Rebels
(1:34:22) March 1, 2017: Portland Winterhawks @ Vancouver Giants
(1:55:52) March 3, 2017: Portland Winterhawks vs Vancouver Giants

Featured here are games of all varieties, from multi-point games to those in which this player did not record any points. Three away games, and three home games were chosen for this package. The opponents range from the Vancouver Giants, who were the 21st-ranked team to the Seattle Thunderbirds, who were the 2017 Western Hockey League Champions and the 4th-placed team during the 2016-17 WHL regular season. The Prince George Cougars were the 5th-placed team in the league, while the Red Deer Rebels and Spokane Chiefs were the 12th-placed and 17th-placed team in the league, respectively. The Thunderbirds, Cougars, and Rebels qualified for the WHL playoffs. The team that Glass played for this season, the Portland Winterhawks, were the 13th-placed team in the WHL. What matters most of all is the way in which Glass plays in these games from shift to shift. Some of these performances are stronger than others -- I would say that patience pays off for viewers here. The games are featured chronologically in the video.

Hopefully, this offers viewers an informative look at one of the top eligible players for the 2017 NHL Draft, Cody Glass.

As always, comments and discussion are appreciated and encouraged. Enjoy.

[VIDEO]Cody Glass: A 2.5-Hour Scouting Package[All Shifts From 6 2016-17 WHL Matches]
