Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Jeff Glass has successfully cleared waivers. 

Placed on waivers by the team yesterday following another disappointing performance, it’s no surprise that there were no takers for the 32-year-old rookie’s services.

Glass will now report the the Blackhawks’ AHL affiliate, the Rockford IceHogs. In 14 games for the Hawks this season, Glass has picked up just three wins and sports an awful 3.31 GAA and .898 save percentage. The veteran, along with backup Anton Forsberg, has struggled MIGHTILY since starter Corey Crawford went down with an injury in December.

With this news, the Blackhawks officially recalled goaltender J.F. Berube from the AHL’s Rockford IceHogs.

The 26-year-old Berube sports a 2.37 GAA and .920 save percentage in 15 games with the IceHogs this season. 

The former New York Islanders goaltender hasn’t really received an extended look at the NHL level. With Hawks starter Crawford still on the shelf and with the team’s playoff chances dwindling by the moment, is it time to give Berube a fair shot?
