Tanner\'s Take: Snow, Turkey and Hockey
TannerTanner Glass, who gained a loyal following last year both as a  Panther and Rochester American with his gritty, physical play, will provide periodic updates during the season on life as a professional hockey play.

Glass split his time last season between the NHL and American Hockey League, playing in 43 games with the Amerks and 41 with the Panthers.

Tanner's Take Archive

So our first real snowfall is upon us here in Rochester and it feels like winter is here to stay. With the start of winter also comes the start of the holiday season which is always a great time of year. Hopefully, Thanksgiving being right around the corner will bring some good energy and a refreshing spirit to the team. With the kind of start we've had, the challenge is to remain positive and believe that the work we are putting in will begin to pay off sooner rather than later.

This past Saturday night we had a break in our schedule so I was able to take in the Dartmouth-Cornell game in Ithaca and reconnect with some old teammates and coaches. Unfortunately, my alma mater fell to the Big Red 3-1, but not due to lack of effort. The boys are playing hard and I wish them all the best moving forward.

My birthday is just around the corner and I think my girlfriend bought me the Nintendo Wii. I am not a big gamer but I am so excited to play Mario Kart. I had the super Nintendo version all through college and I can't wait to invite the boys over to play. A few weeks ago Rory had the team over and I played Wii tennis with his sons. I think “Fitzy” will have to bring them over for a rematch because they beat me pretty badly and I need to redeem myself.

We play Toronto again this Wednesday in a rare 11:30 a.m. game. It will be interesting to see which team can best adjust to the condensed pregame routine. We are in desperate need of some wins so it is really important that we are ready to go and compete hard from the drop of the puck.

Thanks for reading and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

Talk to you soon.
Tanner
