The Chicago Blackhawks called up Jeff Glass to be the backup for Corey Crawford on March 3rd after Scott Darling injured himself, and now he’s getting sent back down to Rockford.
The Chicago Blackhawks signed Jeff Glass on February 23rd basically to get compliant for the expansion draft, but no one expected Glass to ever get called up to Chicago this season.
Glass didn’t see any action in Chicago even with the Hawks playing back to back games this week against the Anaheim Ducks and Detroit Red Wings.
Glass has been ok with Rockford appearing in 13 games going 5-7-1 with a respectable 2.62 goals against average.
The good news with Glass getting reassigned is that it means that Scott Darling should be off the I.R. before the Blackhawks travel to Montreal on Tuesday to faceoff against the Canadiens.

Darling is having his best season yet with the Chicago Blackhawks. Darling has set a career high in wins with 16 wins with only 6 losses and 2 overtime/losses. Darling has a 2.13 goals against average this year which is rock solid, and a reason some team in the NHL is going to pay him a lot of money to be their starting goalie this summer.

The one thing that is certain is that the Chicago Blackhawks goalie have carried them most of this season until the offense finally showed up in February. Having a healthy Darling backing up Crawford is a nice safety net for Crawford and all Chicago Blackhawks fans.
I would have liked to see Glass get a game in, but it looks like it wasn’t meant to be! Good luck back in Rockford!
