In baseball when an opposing team hits a home run, fans will often toss the ball back on to the field in disgust. Not so in hockey, at least when it comes to the Winnipeg Jets and Tanner Glass' glove.

During Wednesday's game at the MTS Centre against the Dallas Stars, Glass got into a shoving match with the Stars' Adam Burish. When Burish then started kicking Glass' glove down the ice, Glass went after him. So Burish picked up the glove and tossed it into the stands, sparking another round of fighting and sending both players off for penalties.

"I was asking the penalty box official, 'have you seen the glove?'," Glass recalled Friday. "He said 'Yeah', I guess it came right back over."

Some fan had quickly returned the glove, tossing it back on to the ice for officials to grab. Glass said he took the gesture as a good sign, unlike baseball's response to home runs. "I guess people knew I wanted it back," he said.
