Las Vegas–As the Vegas Golden Knights are preparing to play in the first ever Stanley Cup Playoff series against an opponent that is still to be determined, prospects Cody Glass and Nick Suzuki are already playing in the postseason for their respected clubs in juniors.
Both Glass and Suzuki this season have pierced the 100 point plateau this campaign which is the first time in their careers in juniors.
In his 4th season with the Portland Winterhawks, Glass finished the regular season with 102 points (37 goals and 65 assists) which are both career highs for him.
Suzuki also had a career year with Owen Sound as he finished his third season with 100 points of his own (42 goals and 58 assists).
His 42 goals that he produced this campaign was his 2nd best with the Attack, the 58 assists bested out his previous record of 51 which he set the prior year.
For the two highest draft pick products of the Golden Knights, we think that General Manager George McPhee struck gold with these two offensive juggernauts as they have making some serious contributions for their squads in the playoffs.
Glass and Suzuki are currently playing in the second round of the playoffs and are still making an impact.
With Glass, he’s already produced 4 goals, 8 assists for 12 points in 8 games and feat he accomplished in three fewer contest from the 2016-17 playoff season. The 8 assists and 12 points are now his career best in the postseason and for the first time in the WHL playoffs he is averaging over 1 point per game at 1.50.
Tonight, Glass scored a goal in the Winterhawks 5-2 victory in the opening game of the second round vs. Everett.
Across the border in the OHL, Suzuki thru 6 games played in the playoffs has 3 goals, 6 assists at 9 points. Like Glass tonight he also scored a key goal in the clutch late in the third period that forced overtime where Owen Sound eventually fell 5-4 to the Greyhounds in the second game of the series.
In the 2016-17 playoffs, Suzuki played in 17 games where he recorded 22 points (8 goals and 14 assists) that are still his career best. If his team continues on a lengthy run in the OHL playoffs he could reach that mark once again.
For the second straight season in the playoffs, Suzuki is averaging over a point per game at 1.50 that is now his best.
Glass will be back in action again tomorrow night as the Winterhawks and Silvertips faceoff in game two of the best of seven series with Portland having a 1-0 lead.
Fans will have to wait until Monday night to catch Suzuki back in action again as his Owen Sound Attack take on the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds in the third game of the series. Both squads earned a split in the first two games of the series.
