Dallas Stars sign Scott Glennie to Entry Level Contract

Even though the plan for the Stars' top Prospect Scott Glennie is for him to stay with the Brandon Wheat Kings for the 2010-2011 season, Glennie has other plans which includes getting into the NHL Starting next season.

Even though his contract doesn't go into effect until his pro career starts, the Stars are confident that he will make a big impact early on as Scott Glennie signed to the Standard 3 Year Entry Level Contract yesterday.

Glennie has been the team's top prospect since he entered the Stars System when he was drafted last year.

The last 2 seasons for the Brandon Wheat Kings have been very successful which includes 2 trips to the WHL Eastern Conference Finals and getting to host the CHL Memorial Cup back in May where the team reached the Memorial Cup Championship game before losing to the powerful Windsor Spitfires where they became the first team in 15 years to win Back-to-Back Memorial Cups.

BTW, the last time that feat was done was the Kamloops Blazers back in 1994 and 1995.
