The Calgary, Alberta, native has notched a pair of shutouts this season with his most recent occurring on Feb. 15 in a 37-save performance against the Cleveland Monsters. Glass picked up his first shutout in a Hogs sweater in his very first appearance, a 1-0 win also over the Monsters. He appeared in two games with the AHL’s Toronto Marlies prior to joining the Rockford roster, posting a 1-1-0 record with a 2.05 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage.
