Penn State's Glen to Donate Bone Marrow, Miss Next 3 Games
CHN Staff Report
When Penn State plays Boston College Saturday, sophomore David Glen won’t be in the lineup, the team announced on Friday.
The assistant captain will begin donating bone marrow through the peripheral blood stem cell process. The procedure comes with a seven-to-10-day recovery period.
The forward registered with Be The Match, an organization that registers potential bone marrow donors and matches them with recipients, in November 2012. At the time, Penn State’s men’s lacrosse team was holding the drive to find a donor for the mother of lacrosse player Drew Roper.
Not only will Glen miss Saturday's game against Boston College at Pegula Ice Arena, but he will also be absent from next weekend's Big Ten road games against Ohio State.
Through 18 games this season, Glen has two goals and three assists. As a freshman, Glen’s 25 points ranked second in Penn State scoring.
