Right winger Howie Glover spent parts of five NHL seasons with four different clubs in the 50s and 60s. He was a talented goal scorer who could play abrasively to keep his position near the opposition's goal.

The Toronto native played in the OHA with the Toronto Marlboros, Kitchener Greenshirts, and Barrie Flyers. In 1955-56 he scored 23 goals as a rookie pro with the Toledo-Marion Mercurys of the IHL. Glover joined the NOHA's North Bay Trappers in 1956 but was banned for the year after attacking a referee in a pre-season game. The next year he scored 38 goals for the WHL's Winnipeg Warriors. In 1958-59 Glover played 13 games for the Chicago Black Hawks. He continued to toil chiefly in the minors before he was traded to the Detroit Red Wings in June, 1960.

Glover scored 21 goals in 1960-61 and worked well on a line with Val Fonteyne and Gerry Melnyk. He also performed solidly as a checker when the club reached the Stanley Cup finals. Injuries reduced him to 39 games the next season before he returned to the AHL with the Pittsburgh Hornets in 1962-63.

Following a trade to the New York Rangers, Glover made it into 25 games in 1963-64 but was suspended halfway through the season when he refused a demotion to the minors. The next year he began his first of six straight seasons with the Cleveland Barons of the AHL. In 1967-68 he scored 41 goals for the Barons and made it back to the NHL for one game with the Montreal Canadiens in 1968-69. He retired after playing 32 games for Cleveland in 1969-70.
