Tanner Glass will get back into the lineup Sunday night in Edmonton as teammate Derick Brassard is sent home with the mumps.
Ironically, Glass had the mumps last week. Certainly this is not how anyone would want to get back into action, but it's as good an opportunity as any to prove to Coach Vigneault he's a valuable piece to the Rangers' success. For what it's worth, Glass is second to only Dan Girardi on the team in hits with 68. Dec 14 - 7:53 PM

Tanner Glass will be a healthy scratch for the first time this season.

It's especially hard for Glass as he is back in Vancouver where he played two seasons and has plenty of family and friends. "It’s tough, maybe tougher to sit out this one because of where it is, but I don’t expect a coach to make lineup decisions based on that," Glass told The New York Post. "AV (coach Alain Vigneault) told me that a player shouldn’t lose a spot because of being sick, but that the other guys who got the opportunity when I was out are playing well." The move was made to accommodate Chris Kreider who sat out Monday with a sore neck. Glass has one assist in 22 games this season so his absence shouldn't affect your fantasy team unless you have him in your lineup because of the hits category where he is 49th in the NHL with 68.

Dec 8 - 9:22 AM

Tanner Glass was back at practice on Friday after missing the last three games with the mumps.

Glass won't play on Saturday but is looking to return on Monday. "It was swollen like crazy — my whole face, my neck, my chest," Glass said. "It’s one of those things, you pick it up on the Oregon Trail or when you go to Tampa. Those are two places you get it." Glass has an assist and a minus-nine rating so he should not be on your fantasy team.

Tanner Glass (mumps) skated on his own on Thursday.

There's a chance Glass might practice with the Rangers on Friday, but he won't play on Saturday. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault wasn't subtle in his declaration that Glass doesn't look too good at the moment.
Dec 5 - 10:46 AM

Tanner Glass has been diagnosed with mumps.

This has been the illness of 2014 for the NHL. Glass has been told to stay away from the team while he is contagious. If for some reason you have Glass on your fantasy roster, you can safely dump him as this illness usually takes a few weeks to subside.
Nov 29 - 11:23 AM

Tanner Glass will miss Friday's game due to flu-like symptoms.

Glass has an assist and minus-nine rating in 21 contests in 2014-15. Consider him day-to-day.
Nov 28 - 11:06 AM

Tanner Glass (back) was able to play on Sunday.

Glass played on Saturday too, but he was questionable for Sunday's contest due to back tightness. He ended up with a shot on goal in 11:10 minutes of ice time.
Oct 13 - 1:41 AM

Tanner Glass is questionable for Saturday's contest against the Blue Jackets after missing practice on Friday with back tightness.

Consider the tough Glass day-to-day for now. He is in line for 10-15 points this season and should compile 90-100 penalty minutes. His spot in the lineup, if he is unable to play, will likely be taken by Kevin Hayes.

Tanner Glass looks as though he will make the Rangers as their fourth line left winger.

Glass is not afraid to fight but he brings a lot more to the table than that as he can kill penalties as well as take some face offs, especially at the dot to the left of the goalie. Expect a 10-15 point season from Glass with 90-100 penalty minutes and draft him accordingly.
Oct 4 - 8:33 AM

The New York Rangers have signed Tanner Glass to a three-year/$4.35 million deal.

The Rangers get a tough bottom-six forward who should fit in nicely on the fourth line. He had 13 points and 90 penalty minutes for the Penguins last season.
Jul 1 - 1:54 PM

Tanner Glass may not be in Pittsburgh's plans anymore.

According to agent Ross Gurney, discussions with the Penguins occurred when now associate GM Jason Botterill was filling in on an interim basis, but talks haven't gone on since Jim Rutherford was hired. Glass can become an unrestricted free agent in July if something isn't worked out with the Penguins. He recorded 13 points and 90 penalty minutes in 67 games last season.
Jun 24 - 12:20 PM

Tanner Glass looks like he'll be in the lineup for Game 7.

He hasn't played since the first game of the series against the Rangers. Judging from the warmups, it appears as though he will draw in for Beau Bennett.
May 13 - 6:43 PM

Tanner Glass is out of the lineup Sunday night against the Rangers in Game 2.

Glass will be a healthy scratch. The winger is pointless in seven games this postseason. He played 8:08 in the Penguins' Game 1 loss. Brian Gibbons will enter the lineup.
