Glen Goodall came to Seattle in 1984 as a 14-year-old center, the last season that young were allowed to play in the Western Hockey League.  Due to his skill and his early start, he amassed some staggering numbers and is the Breakers/Thunderbirds franchise leader in every major offensive category including games played, goals, assists and points.  His longevity, combined with the lower scoring that now exists league-wide, ensures that the majority of these records will never be broken.

Goodall had his finest season as a 20-year-old in 1989-90, setting all-time Seattle single-season records with 76 goals and 163 points.  He was the second highest scorer in the league, earning MVP honors and leading the Thunderbirds to the Western Conference Finals for the first time in eight seasons.  He was honored with "Glen Goodall Night" at the end of the regular season during which his number "10" was retired by the franchise, the only player for any Seattle hockey team to receive that honor.

Selected by the Detroit Red Wings in the 10th round of the 1988 NHL Entry Draft, Goodall never made it to the NHL.  After three productive years in the minors he went to Germany for the 1994-95 season, and he is still playing there professionally today (through the 2004-05 season).
