Frank "Pud" Glass (February 10, 1884 – March 2, 1965) was a professional ice hockey player who played in various professional and amateur leagues, including the National Hockey Association and Eastern Canada Amateur Hockey Association. He was a member of the Wanderers' Stanley Cup champion teams in the 1905–06, 1906–07, 1907–08 and 1909–10 seasons. He was the captain of Montreal Wanderers when they won their fourth Stanley Cup.

Playing career[edit]

Frank Glass was born in Scotland, but raised in Canada. He played hockey in his neighbourhood of Pointe-Saint-Charles in Montreal. His first senior team was the Montreal Wanderers, then an amateur team for the 1904–05 season. He would play for the Wanderers for seven seasons. In 1906, he became a professional paid player on the Wanderers, one of five out of a roster of nine. He first signed a contract with the Montreal Hockey Club, then chose not to report and signed with the Wanderers instead for more money. His situation caused a problem for the league, which eventually allowed him to play for the Wanderers and fined him $50. A similar situation occurred before the 1907–08 season and Glass was again fined and threatened with league expulsion if he signed two contracts again. During his time with the Wanderers the Wanderers were the top team in the country, winning league championship and Stanley Cups from 1906 until 1910. In 1911–12, his final season, he played for the Montreal Canadiens.

Frank Glass grew up in the same neighbourhood of Pointe-Saint-Charles in Montreal as fellow Montreal Wanderers player Ernie "Moose" Johnson. The two were inseparable companions off the ice and also teamed well together on the ice.[1] Glass and Johnson played together on the 1902–03 Montreal St. Lawrence team in the Montreal City Hockey League before rejoining in the 1906 season on the Montreal Wanderers in the ECAHA.
