The story of Jeff Glass is a great example of perseverance.
Selected way back in the third round of the 2004 NHL draft by the Ottawa Senators, the now 32-year-old goaltender played his first NHL game yesterday with the Chicago Blackhawks.
He posted 42 saves in his team's 4-3 overtime win against the Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers.
Chicago Sun Times' Mark Lazerus said on Twitter today that he expects Glass to get another start tomorrow against the Calgary Flames because of his great performance:
As we reported yesterday, Glass played in the American Hockey League and East Coast Hockey League prior to leaving North America to play several seasons in the KHL. His second stint in the AHL finally paid off for him.
The Blackhawks have a record of 18-14-5 good for 41 points. They're currently in sixth place in the Central division, but are just two points out of a wild card spot in the playoffs.
