Better late than never.
Chicago Blackhawks netminder Jeff Glass made his first career NHL start Friday night against the Edmonton Oilers, and thanks to an incredible overtime goal by Patrick Kane, he earned his first career win at 32 years of age.
"Something I dreamed of, never thought it would come true," Glass said of the win postgame.
Glass was a third-round pick by the Ottawa Senators in 2004. He spent four seasons with the club's AHL affiliate, the Binghamton Senators, but never earned a call-up.
He moved onto the KHL and spent the next seven years there before returning to the AHL last season.
Glass signed with the Blackhawks in February and played with the Rockford IceHogs. This week, Chicago placed starter Corey Crawford on injured reserve, and as they say, the rest is history.
