Glass scored an unassisted goal in the first period of Wednesday's Game 1 win over Montreal. After spending the majority of the season in the AHL, Glass was an unexpected hero in Game 1 for the Blueshirts. The gritty winger pulled in a loose puck off an offensive-zone faceoff and slung a nifty backhander over Carey Price's glove. Don't expect to see many more scoresheet appearances from Glass, and he's also a risk to be a healthy scratch if the Rangers decide to dress a lineup with more speed and skill. However, his opportunistic goal might also give him a longer leash. Regardless, he's a low-end fantasy option.
Glass scored his first goal of the year and added an assist in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Florida. That's well and good, but there's no reason to look for continued offensive production from Glass, a veteran enforcer who has just 15 points in 57 AHL games this season. He could provide a short-term boost of PIM and hits as long as he sticks around in the lineup, though.
Glass was recalled from AHL Hartford on Sunday. Sunday marks the first time Glass has been rostered by the Rangers this season, as he's played 57 games with the Wolf Pack. He tallied just 15 points over that span, but will likely just be used as an enforcer, having consistently amassed penalty minutes at every level. Other than that, he doesn't provide much fantasy utility.
Glass was waived by the Rangers on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. He'll likely report to AHL Hartford upon clearing waivers. It seems unlikely that another team will make a play for Glass, as enforcers are not as valued as they once were. In a somewhat surprising move, both he and Nathan Gerbe were sent down, a move that should clear space on the Rangers' roster for highly touted prospect Pavel Buchnevich.
Glass is battling Nathan Gerbe for the final forward spot on the Rangers' roster, The Journal News reports. An enforcer who's played in a part-time role for the Rangers over the last two seasons, Glass offers almost nothing offensively and isn't a particularly good skater or defender. It seems likely the Rangers will prefer the scoring punch of Gerbe and ticket Glass for AHL Hartford; as the league continues easing tough guys out, Glass may find himself riding the bus back and forth between Hartford and Broadway this year.
