The Colorado Eagles (CHL) announced Wednesday that they have signed rookie forward Matthew Glasser, a product of the University of Denver and a 7th-round draft pick of the Edmonton Oilers in 2005.

Glasser joins the CHL’s reigning MVP, Kevin Ulanski, as a former Pioneer on the Eagles’ roster.

In 133 games over four seasons at DU, the 5-foot-10-inch, 185-pound two-way forward collected 21 points (13-8-21) and 60 penalty minutes. Glasser was named an alternate captain last season, adding leadership to a resume that reflects strong academic success as well — highlighted by winning the Dr. Art Mason Award.

The Eagles, founded and owned by former DU coach Ralph Backstrom, have sold out every home game in the Budweiser Events Center (Loveland, CO) since the team was founded in DU hockey’s top scholar/athlete the past two years (co-winning last season).

Good for Matt.

He's played all-out on every shift I ever saw him play in DU uniform, hit the books hard and represented his school well.

He will get to say he was a professional hockey player, which only a small perecentage of players can say.

Well done, Matt.
