Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Glen Cochrane
Glen Cochrane was selected in the third round of the 1978 NHL Entry Draft, 50th overall by the Philadelphia Flyers. He began his major junior career with the Calgary Centennials at the age of 18. He was traded to the Victoria Cougars midway through the season. In 1977-78, Cochrane scored seven goals and 47 points with 311 minutes in penalties over 72 games.

Cochrane played his first game in the NHL in 1978-79. He spent the next season in the minors before being called up for 31 games in 1980-81. Cochrane knew his only chance at staying with the big team was to act as one of the club's enforcers, a task he took on, resulting in 219 minutes in penalties. The willingness to drop the gloves earned Cochrane a full-time spot on the roster for the next three years. During that span of 207 games he accumulated 791 minutes in penalties.

Cochrane returned to the Flyers for one more year, suiting up for 18 games before joining the Vancouver Canucks in 1985-86. Midway through the next season he was sent to the Chicago Blackhawks where he played for a year before being sent to Edmonton, his final NHL destination.

He retired after ten years in the NHL, playing 411 games, scoring 17 goals and 89 points with 1,556 minutes in penalties.
