The past few weeks have been a whirlwind for Penn State forward David Glen, on and off the ice.
The sophomore scored a goal in the Nittany Lions' 4-0 upset of 10th-ranked Michigan on Feb. 8, marking their first conference victory of the inaugural Big Ten hockey season. But what made the weekend series against the Wolverines even more memorable was Glen's return to action after a selfless act that forced him to miss a few games.
After being identified as a match by a national marrow donation program, Glen underwent a peripheral blood stem cell procedure to help a woman battling cancer. Other than the woman's age, Glen didn't know the identity of the patient needing the transplant. However, he did know the procedure would keep him off the ice for at least a few games.
The choice was clear.
