The Cody Glass injury that started Jan. 4 has put him on the shelf for the rest of the season. This continued to be a nagging injury that finally required surgery.

What Started the Downhill Skid for Cody Glass?

On Jan. 4, Vegas Golden Knights centerman Cody Glass injured his right knee against the St. Louis Blues. At the point of contact it appeared to possibly be an ACL tear due to the buckling of the leg. Watch as he collides with Jay Bouwmeester.

Glass was listed as day to day but resulted in no playing time with the team for the rest of January.

The Golden Knights decided to send him down to the AHL due to a lack of playing time. Glass was sent down on Feb. 8 and finally played on Feb. 20 with the Chicago Wolves. In the first period, Glass reinjured his knee.

Glass’ Fate is Sealed

On March 7, Glass went under the knife. The extent of the damaged knee is the result of his rookie season ending early. DeBoer says he will be available for training camp in September due to a successful surgery.

The 20-year-old rookie still has a lot of upside even with the injury that sidelined him. He was the Golden Knights’ sixth overall draft pick in 2017 and finally got the call this season to play in the NHL. The rookie centerman played 39 games with five goals and seven assists.
