(CBS) The Blackhawks have recalled goalie Jeff Glass from AHL Rockford ahead of their playoff opener, a procedural move so he can serve as an emergency backup if needed.

Glass was 5-7-1 with a 2.62 goals against average and .910 save percentage in 13 games with the IceHogs this season.

The Blackhawks signed Glass in late February.
