Glass was signed to a contract just yesterday by the Chicago Blackhawks, and would need waivers in order to remain in Rockford where he is currently playing. Similar to the situation Adam Pardy went through earlier this year, Glass is not expected to spend much time in the NHL this season unless the Blackhawks decide to move Scott Darling at the deadline.
Helgeson has played in nine games with the Devils this season after they brought him up in December. He hasn’t seen game action in almost two weeks, and even then had been playing just over 13 minutes a night. The former fourth-round pick will likely clear, as other defensemen who are more established than him have done so in weeks past.
Bickell was placed on waivers in order to extend his stay with the Charlotte Checkers as he continues to work back from his diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis earlier this year. The road has been long for the three-time Stanley Cup winner, but he’s determined to make it back to the NHL this season. The entire hockey world is rooting for him, whether you’ve hated playing against him in the past.
