Read: Tanner Glass on penalty killing and thinking he can be equal to Brian Boyle in some areas

Alain Vigneault has mentioned that Tanner Glass will likely see some PK time with the Rangers this coming season.

Glass has been a regular on the PK for the last three seasons and says that while he is replacing a “great penalty killer” in Brian Boyle, he thinks that there are some areas, like shot blocking, where he is comparable to Boyle. (Rangers Website)

  • In the playoffs he averaged 1:14 per game and had 2 total blocked shots. (Boyle: 1:37 PK, 18 blocked)

In 11-12, Glass averaged 1:47 per game on the PK and had 51 total blocked shots. (Boyle: 1:59 PK, 83 blocked/2:38 PK, 17 blocked in playoffs)

In 10-11, Glass averaged 1:02 per game on the PK and had 29 total blocked shots. (Boyle: 1:56 PK, 86 blocked)
