Glass was dealt to the Ducks' AHL affiliate in a trade with Toronto on Monday. Glass is unlikely to spend time with the big club despite backup Ryan Miller's current injury issues, but those same issues likely prompted the Ducks to bolster their goaltending depth in the AHL should an extensive call-up of current AHL starter Jared Coreau prove necessary.
The Flames released Glass from his professional tryout offer Wednesday, Aaron Vickers of NHL.com reports. Glass evidently wasn't impressive enough to supplant Jon Gillies as Mike Smith's backup during his tryout, so he'll now hope to catch on with another NHL club. If he's unable to do so, it wouldn't be surprising to see him sign an AHL-only deal.
Glass signed a professional tryout offer with the Flames on Monday, RDS.ca reports. Glass made his NHL debut as a 32-year-old with the Blackhawks last season and wound up with a 3-7-3 record, 3.36 GAA and .898 save percentage through 15 games as a stop-gap option with Corey Crawford largely unavailable. The Flames are set to open the new season with Mike Smith and Jon Gillies as the team's top two netminders, but it can't hurt to have Glass as a contingency plan in case injuries strike.
Glass was reassigned to AHL Rockford on Sunday. At the beginning of the season, Glass wasn't expected to accrue any NHL time unless and Corey Crawford was injured, and Crawford endured a concussion on Dec. 23 that left him out for the year. Glass played decent at best, compiling a .898 save percentage, 3.36 GAA and 3-7-3 record, and he'll help AHL Rockford fight for a birth in the Calder Cup Playoffs.
Glass made 35 saves in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Jets. After a strong 3-1-1 start, the glass shattered for this 33-year-old rookie who finally fulfilled his dream of playing in the NHL. Glass will be hard-pressed to earn a job as the Hawks' backup next season, but he will be able to say he proved he could be in the NHL. He finishes 3-7-3.
