Biography

Ice hockey defenseman Brian Glennie spent 1964 through 1967 in the Junior Ontario Hockey Association with the Toronto Marlboros and was captain when the team won the Memorial Cup, given annually to the men’s junior ice hockey champions in Canada, during his final season. He suited up briefly with the Michigan State University Spartans prior to joining the Canadian men’s national ice hockey team and travelling with them to the 1968 Winter Olympics. At the tournament he played in seven games and took home a bronze medal. He split the following year between the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League and the Tulsa Oilers of the Central Professional Hockey League and was recruited by the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League in 1969. He had a long run with the team, which lasted until 1978, but he is probably remembered for his appearance at the 1972 Summit Series, where the NHL faced off against the Soviet Union, even though he only skated in two exhibition games. His other newsworthy moment came in 1975 when he was attacked on-ice by Detroit Red Wings player Dan Maloney. Maloney was originally charged with assault for attacking Glennie with his stick during the match, but Maloney ended up doing community service to have the charge dropped, in addition to being banned from playing in Toronto for two seasons. Glennie played a final eighteen games with the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings the following year, and retired from active play in 1979. The recreation center at Cranberry Cove Marsh Resort near Lake Muskoka, where Glennie now works, is named in his honor. He was inducted into the Canada Sports Hall of Fame in 2005 for his participation in the 1972 Summit Series.
