From 1946 to 1950, Glen Skov alternated his play between the Windsor Spitfires of the OHA and the Detroit Hettche and the Windsor Ryancretes of the IHL. In his final campaign with the Spitfires in 1949-50, he scorched the scoring sheets with 102 points in only 47 games.

As property of the Detroit Red Wings, the prolific young centerman turned pro with the Omaha Knights of the USHL in 1950. There, he continued to demonstrate his offensive prowess and his ability to play a solid, physical game.

The Red Wings brought Skov on board near the end of the 1950-51 season and, from that point on, he remained at the NHL level. His role as a forward, however, underwent a change. In the Motor City, the roster was already filled with top-line offensively oriented gunners. To secure his place farther down the ranks, Skov had to play as a two-way center who made his top priority to neutralize the opposition's No. 1 centerman.

Skov proved to be very adept at his new assignment. He consistently provided the Wings with the unsung support that the star forwards needed to chase Lord Stanley with credibility. Collective success came in the form of league championships in 1952, 1954, and 1955.

After the third Cup, Skov was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks where he continued to play his two-way game for an additional five seasons. In 1960, the Hawks traded him to the Montreal Canadiens who wanted him to coach one of their minor-league affiliates. Skov was open to offers but couldn't agree on a salary that satisfied his requirements. As a result, he retired after spending the bulk of the 1960-61 season with the Hull-Ottawa Canadiens of the EPHL.
