Jack Glover is slated to lace up at the University of Minnesota next season after playing two years for the US National Team Development Program. The 6’3, 190-pound defenseman finished second on the team, amongst blueliners, with 28 points (2G, 26A) in 59 games this past season. Glover also helped Team USA win gold at the 2014 U-18 World Junior Championships in Finland by contributing four points in seven games.

Glover is a big, powerful defender that has the ability to produce as well as defend. Very good skater and smart with the puck. Tough to beat him with the puck in the corners because he has a reach you can’t teach.

Second-year OHL winger Brendan Lemieux improved drastically on his point totals from his rookie season with the Barrie Colts. After tallying 14 points in 2012-13, Lemieux notched 53 points (27G, 26A) in 65 games as a sophomore. Brendan has a championship pedigree, as his father is Claude Lemieux, a four-time Stanley Cup winner and 1995 Conn Smythe winner.

Brendan has many of the same characteristics of his father (Claude Lemieux) when he played the game. He's a guy you love to have on your team and hate to play against. He has an edgy, in your face style, but don’t discount his ability to play the game. Depth player.
John Quenneville’s 58 points (25G, 33A) in 61 games this season six points shy of the Brandon Wheat Kings team lead. Quenneville, the cousin of Chicago Blackhawks Head Coach Joe Quenneville, took his performance to another level during the playoffs, as he led Brandon with 13 points (5G, 8A) in nine games. Along with Islanders prospect Ryan Pulock, Quenneville and the Wheat Kings fell in the second round to the eventual Memorial Cup Champions, the Edmonton Oil Kings.

Quenneville is an all-purpose style of player; a meat-and-potato guy with very good instincts around the net. He's a depth type of player with very good habits that can make plays offensively, but will more likely end up on the score sheet scoring the goal rather than setting it up.
