The Chicago Blackhawks announced today that they have agreed to terms with goaltender Jeff Glass on a two-year contract that runs through the 2017-18 season.
Glass shows a 5-4-1 record to go with a 2.38 goals-against average and .917 save percentage in 10 games with the American Hockey League's Rockford IceHogs this season. The 31-year-old posted a shutout in his debut with Rockford on Jan. 18, 2017, and added his second blanking of the season with a 37-save performance on Feb. 15 against the Cleveland Monsters.
The Calgary, Alberta, native has compiled a 48-72-6 career record in 147 career AHL games with the Binghamton Senators (2005-09), Toronto Marlies (2016-17), and Rockford (2016-17). He also accumulated an 81-87-30 career record in the Kontinental Hockey League with six different clubs from 2009-16. Glass was originally drafted in the third round (89th overall) of the 2004 NHL Draft by the Ottawa Senators.
The Blackhawks return to action on Thursday against the Arizona Coyotes at the United Center at 7:30 p.m. The game can be seen live on CSN, streamed live online at CSNChicago.com (CSNChicago.com/BlackhawksStream) and the NBC Sports App, and heard on WGN Radio and Univision America (WRTO 1200 AM).
