Although born in High River, he spent his childhood in Wainwright, Alberta. His junior career started in 1961 when he joined the Edmonton Oil Kings for which he played until 1964. He then became a part of the Memphis Wings that competed in Central Professional Hockey League, and after 69 games, 19 goals scored and 29 assists made, he moved to the Oklahoma City Blazers of the same league. He played two seasons for the Blazers, scoring 27 goals and making 31 assists before reaching the NHL in 1966, as he joined the Boston Bruins. In his first season with the Bruins, Glen played in only five games, but then in 1967-1968 he played in 65 games and scored eight goals in addition to 12 assists. His professional playing career lasted until 1976-1977, appearing in 658 games, and he scored on 80 occasions while also adding 113 assists to his name, overall.

Even before he officially retired from playing, Glen was made player-coach of the Oilers. He spent the last 18 games of the 1976-1977 season as both a player and a coach, and continued as the head coach of the Oilers, and in 1979-1980 his Oilers were absorbed into the NHL. A season prior, he and the Oilers front office did all they could to acquire Wayne Gretzky, who later became the greatest player of the game. Glen coached the Oilers until 1990, winning four Stanley Cup trophies, between 1983 and 1988, missing out only in 1985-1986 season. Following the infamous Gretzky trade, Glen resigned as coach the following year, and became President and General Manager of the team, in which position Glen won his fifth Stanley Cup trophy with the Oilers in 1989-90, which certainly increased his wealth. He was back in the coaching spot for the 1993-1994 season but didn’t have much success, however, he remained with the team until 2000, when he joined the New York Rangers as President and General Manager, serving as the General Manager until 2015, when he decided to step down from his position, but has continued to serve as the President of the franchise.
