Jeff Glass (born November 19, 1985) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player. He is currently playing for HC Lada Togliatti of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). Glass was selected by the Ottawa Senators in the 3rd round (89th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. He joined their minor league affiliate and played several years with the organization before leaving as a free agent to join Barys Astana in 2009.

Playing career[edit]

Glass spent his junior career with the Kootenay Ice of the Western Hockey League (WHL), spending three seasons with the team from 2002–2005. At the conclusion of the 2004–05 season, Glass won the Del Wilson Trophy as the WHL's top goaltender, was named to the WHL First All-Star team, and was named CHL Goaltender of the Year as the best goaltender in Canadian major-junior hockey. That year, Glass was also named starting goaltender for Canada at the 2005 World Junior Championships in North Dakota. Glass went 5-0 with a 1.40 goals against average (GAA), backstopping Canada to its first gold medal at the tournament since 1997.[1]

Glass was drafted by the Ottawa Senators in the third round, 89th overall, of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. After his stellar 2004–05 campaign, he signed a three year entry level contract with the Senators. He spent the majority of the 2005–06 season with the Senators' East Coast Hockey League affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers, before securing a full-time job with the Senators' top minor-league affiliate, the American Hockey League's Binghamton Senators, in 2006-07. For the next three seasons Glass shared time in Binghamton with Kelly Guard and Brian Elliott, compiling a record of 42-67-9.

After the 2008–09 season, Glass became a free agent and on 30 August 2009, he signed an undisclosed deal with the KHL's Barys Astana.[2] Glass had a stellar 2009–10 campaign with Astana, posting a 19-11-4 record with a 2.87 GAA and .918 save percentage. Astana lost its first round playoff series to the eventual Gagarin Cup champions, Ak Bars Kazan.[3]

Glass signed with HC Spartak Moscow before the 2013–14 season, however due to team financial problems he was sold to HC CSKA Moscow in January 2014. On July 9, 2014, Glass signed as a free agent to a one-year contract with HC Lada Togliatti.[4]
