from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
In a start to this season where positives have only lately begun to surface, Glendening has been one from the opening night.
Glendening has five points (one goal, four assists) in 13 games, with a team best plus-3 rating and a 56.7 percent face-off percentage. He's also continuing to be a key penalty killer and defensive forward.
“I’d say it’s for two seasons,” coach Jeff Blashill said of Glendening’s impressive play. “Three seasons ago he had a down year. He really refocused himself going into last season and he’s been a physical force on a consistent basis, probably our most physical force on a consistent basis for two years.”
Blashill feels the work Glendening has put in during the last two summers have paid off.
“He’s worked on his skill set and gotten better,” Blashill said. “One thing Luke can do, he’s a real athlete and he works extremely hard, so through the course of the summer he’s worked at his skill set and gotten better at those areas.
Below, a slew of players and coach Blashill talk before the game.
