Watch KHL netmdiner Jeff Glass make three outstanding saves in a row

Jeff Glass, a 2004 pick of the Ottawa Senators, is playing for Dinamo Minsk now, and in a contest against Mettalurg Magnitogorsk he made an unbelievable sequence of saves. The 2005 Canadian World Junior netminder has spent the past seven seasons in the KHL.

Remember Jeff Glass?

The netminder was a third-round pick, 89th overall by the Ottawa Senators in 2004 and is best known in North America for backstopping what was quite possibly the greatest World Junior Championship team of all-time, 2005’s Team Canada. The team featured Patrice Bergeron, Ryan Getzlaf, Jeff Carter and Sidney Crosby, and Glass helped the club to a convincing gold medal victory at the 2005 tournament.

Glass then went on to spend four seasons in the AHL with the Binghamton Senators, but left North America to pursue an opportunity with the KHL’s Barys Astana in 2009-10. Glass has now spent the past seven seasons in the KHL. This campaign Glass is with Dinamo Minsk, and in a contest against Mettalurg Magnitogorsk, he turned in an outstanding three-save sequence.

The first stop was routine, a right pad stop on a shot that was twisted on goal, but the second and third saves are jaw-droppers:

As soon as that rebound comes off of Glass’ pad, the craziness begins, but that Glass was able to stop both the one-time blast and the subsequent wraparound attempt is incredible.

The 29-year-old Glass has bounced around the KHL over the past several seasons. After his three-year stay in Astana was up, Glass has played for five different teams — Sibir Novosibirsk, Spartak Moscow, CSKA Moscow, Lada Togliatti and Dinamo — over the past four seasons.
