At 20 years old and with four seasons of juniors under his belt Glennie will join the Texas Stars full time next season as he continues his hopeful road to the NHL, where he projects as a right wing for Dallas some day.
Glennie will not exactly be a Jamie Benn type add for Texas this year and should not be expected to have a tremendous impact on their post-season, but the experience will be beneficial for Glennie's development and eventual transfer full time to Cedar Park next year.
From the Wheat Kings release:
The Wheat Kings have confirmed that 19-year old center Scott Glennie will join the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League for the balance of the regular season and playoffs.
Glennie, who finished second in team scoring this season with a career high 91 points including 35 goals, was chosen by the Dallas Stars in the first round (8th overall) of the 2009 National Hockey League Entry Draft. He signed with the Stars last summer.
A 4-year Western League veteran, the 6’2" 192 lb Winnipeg product led Brandon in playoff scoring this spring with three goals and 10 points in six games as the Wheat Kings fell to the Medicine Hat Tigers in their best of seven opening round playoff series.

No formal announcement has been made by either the Dallas or Texas Stars.
