New York Rangers‘ 8th year left wing Tanner Glass(13) seems to be taking his first demotion to the minors since 2008/2009 when he was with Rochester Americans (his only AHL team) in stride.

Reassigned after playing the first two games of 2015/2016, he got fairly decent ice time but there’s less room in the big league these days.

Without too much fanfare he reported to affiliate Hartford Wolf Pack and started playing pretty much the exact game he always has, tough, unrelenting, in your face.

In 11 games he has 2 goals and 3 assists but owns a miserable -10 rating.

Originally a Florida Panthers‘ 9th round pick in the 2003 draft (#265 overall), he split time in his initial two seasons before signing for a year and an extension with Vancouver Canucks.

It was in his next season signed to a 1-year deal with Winnipeg Jets, he reached new career highs for games played (78), goals (5), assists (11) and points (16).

The agitator next inked for a pair of campaigns with Pittsburgh Penguins before his current three-year run with the Blueshirts.

He skated in all 19 postseason matchups but as teams are becoming younger and faster, the soon-to-be 32-year old found himself on the outside.

It’s possible that he could get bought out of his final year or earn a nice $2.5 million to stay in the system and help mentor the prospects.
