… The American Hockey League announced today that Jeff Glass of the Binghamton Senators has been named the Rbk X-Pulse/AHL Goaltender of the Month for November. In nine appearances, Glass was 6-2-1 with a 1.77 goals-against average, a .943 save percentage and two shutouts.

Glass began the month by making 35 saves on Nov. 2 in a 5-2 win vs. Bridgeport. One day before his 22nd birthday, he posted his first shutout of the season on Nov. 18, turning aside 28 shots in a 3-0 victory at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
