This has been a rollercoaster hockey season for IceHogs’ goaltender Jeff Glass and it’s not over yet.
He opened the season in Rockford. He was called up to the Blackhawks in late Decemeber. He won his NHL debut and he played in 14 games for the Blackhawks. Last week he was assigned back to the IceHogs.
Now he’s trying to fit in again. All-in-all the 32 year old veteran says he can’t complain.
“It was a great experience. I learned a lot (with the Blackhawks) obviously. What’s most important is I’m a better goalie now than when I went up there. I learned a lot on the ice. I learned a lot off the ice. It was an unbelievable leadership group up there. I think the biggest thing is I’m trying to take as much as I can from that. I was a little bit of a sponge up there. Soak it up, enjoy it. I think I realized I can play at that level as well as help other guys out.”
Glass allowed four goals in his most recent outing Saturday night in the IceHogs’ loss to the Cleveland Monsters.
