On Thursday morning, the Blackhawks announced the team has agreed to a two-year contract with goaltender Jeff Glass that runs though the 2017-18 season.
Glass, 31, was originally a third round pick (89th overall) by the Ottawa Senators in the 2004 NHL Draft. He has appeared in 10 games with the Rockford IceHogs this season, posting a .917 save percentage with two shutouts. He appeared in two games with the Toronto Marlies earlier this season before signing with Rockford as a free agent on Jan. 10.

Glass spent the seven seasons in the KHL before returning to North America this season. He had an 81-87-30 record with a 2.64 GAA and .916 save percentage in 218 appearances in Russia. He is listed at 6-3 and 213 pounds in Rockford.
With Glass signed, the Blackhawks have three netminders – Glass, Mac Carruth and Lars Johansson – under contract with the IceHogs. However, Johansson and Scott Darling are unrestricted free agents and Carruth is a restricted free agent this summer.
