Here is the press release: Cedar Park, TX – The Texas Stars announced on Wednesday the club has signed forward Scott Glennie to an Amateur Tryout Agreement (ATO).
Glennie recently completed a four-year run with the Western Hockey League’s Brandon Wheat Kings. He finished second in team scoring this season with a career-high 91 points, including 35 goals and 56 assists in 70 regular season games played. The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder was chosen by the Dallas Stars in the first round (8th overall) of the 2009 National Hockey League Entry Draft. The Winnipeg native led Brandon in playoff scoring with three goals and 10 points in six games. The Wheat Kings fell to the Medicine Hat Tigers in their best-of-seven opening round playoff series.
The 19-year old played in 252 career games for the Wheat Kings and he became the first Brandon player since Marty Murray in 1994 to eclipse the 300-point plateau.

In 39 playoff games with Brandon, he had ten goals and 39 points – good for 15th on the club’s all-time list.
