Las Vegas–Yesterday the Vegas Golden Knights released their #6th overall and #13 overall selections in Cody Glass and Nick Suzuki from the franchises 1st ever training camp in club history returned to their junior clubs to continue with developing their game.
When Glass played in the preseason game this past Sunday against the Vancouver Canucks he recorded his 1st of 2 assists, while Suzuki had 2 points in that game (1g and 1a).
In the 1st night back with his junior club, Suzuki scored his 1st goal and 1st assist of the season with the Owen Sound Attack in their 4-3 loss vs. the Flint Firebirds.
Golden Knights prospect Suzuki was Owen Sound’s 3rd Star of The Game with his 2 point game (1g and 1a).
Having being exposed at the NHL level will give Suzuki the necessary he needs to come back next season with the Golden Knights for their 2018-19 development, rookie, and training camps.
Scoring his 1st shortly after being released by Vegas is just the start of great things to come for the young centerman.
Meanwhile, for Glass, he had a great game with the Portland Winterhawks particularly in the 2nd period where the WHL Hawks scored 6 goals.
Glass made contributions on 2 of those goals (Kieffer Bellows New York Islanders prospect and Skyler McKenzie Winnipeg Jets prospect) in the middle frame.
In the games final period, he added his 1st goal of the season for Portland.
With Glass’s 3 point performance tonight (1g and 2a) against the Everett Silvertips earned the Golden Knights #6th overall pick a 2nd star of the game.
