Tanner Glass: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Glass wasn't expected to produce offensively when he signed with Pittsburgh a summer ago, but he was counted upon to effectively fill a grinding, third or fourth line role. By season's end, many observers were wondering why he was even in the Pens' lineup. Glass was durable, playing in all 48 games, but he rarely did anything to spark his teammates. The forward finished with a team-leading 125 hits, but landed on the bottom of the pile with a team-worst minus-11 rating. He could be used on a nightly basis looking for hits in head-to-head leagues, but with two points (1G, 1A) there's not much to like with Glass.
Glass is expected to replace the grit Pittsburgh lost when it allowed Arron Asham sign with the Rangers. The third-line forward averaged a career-high 13:25 time-on-ice in 2011-12 and the increased playing time led to 246 hits, nearly double his total from 2010-12 (130). Glass has never compiled more than 16 points in a single season, but fantasy owners looking for hits could do a lot worse than Glass.
Glass had just 10 points in 73 games with the Canucks in the 2010-11. He is the type of player that has to grind it out on his team's fourth line every night. His role in Winnipeg will be no different and in most formats he is not worth fantasy consideration because of that.
After a rash of injuries hit the Canucks last season, Glass found a role with the team as a depth forward. He finished with four goals and seven assists in 67 appearances. That performance was good enough to earn Glass a one-way deal this season, but donít expect his role or production to change.
Glass is a reliable two-way forward, but as his two career points suggest, he's better at the defensive side of things. He'll give the Canucks depth on their fourth line, but his lack of scoring and an uncertain roster spot keep him off the fantasy radar.
Glass played sparingly in half a season with the Panthers, mainly as a grinding fourth-line winger who would drop the gloves when necessary. His role isn't expected to grow this season.
