Curtis Glencross rues taking a "hometown discount" with his most recent deal, especially as he waits on the sidelines of unrestricted free agency.
Glencross detailed his "frustrating" situation with the Calgary Sun on Friday. "I have a young family, and it’s tough to bounce around on a PTO — it has to be a good opportunity, too, so I can do well and get an extension," Glencross said. Glencross will likely need to impress on a one-year "audition" before he gets any chance at longer-term security. Aug 29 - 12:23 PM

Curtis Glencross probably won't be back with the Capitals in 2015-16.

He skated in 18 games for Washington during the regular season after he was acquired from Calgary and he appeared in 10 playoff contests. Glencross was productive out of the gate, but his offense dried up and his role on the team diminished. He sounds open to coming back, but he might explore free agency anyway. "You've got to be open for anything," Glencross said. "You never know what's going to happen. You've got to wait and see what's out there. It's something where my ties aren't from Washington at all. It's a great team and I feel this is the team that's going to win the Cup here in the next few years."

Curtis Glencross will be a healthy scratch for Game 7 Wednesday at Madison Square Garden.

With Eric Fehr returning to the Capitals lineup, Glencross will be the odd man out and watch from the press box. In 10 postseason games this season, Glencross has only tallied one goal with a minus five rating. Michael Latta and Nate Schmidt will also be healthy scratches Wednesday. Latta has only dressed in four games this postseason, all versus the Islanders, and has yet to record a shot on goal or point. Schmidt was just called up Tuesday in case Tim Gleason couldn’t dress, but he is good to go, so Schmidt will be scratched.

Curtis Glencross took responsibility for the overtime loss in Game 5 to the Rangers.

Glencross attempted a pass to Brooks Laich but Jesper Fast intercepted the attempt which resulted in Ryan McDonagh's game winner. "It’s disappointing, obviously," Glencross said. "They picked off a hard pass across the ice out of the air and came back and unfortunately they put it in the back of the net. Brooksie was all alone wide. If I make a pass like that he’s gone in [alone] pretty much." Glencross scored the lone Washington goal on Friday.

Curtis Glencross scored in Friday's Game Five loss to the New York Rangers.

Glencross scored the game's first goal at the 10:54 mark of the third period. The lead stood until Chris Kreider tied it with 1:41 remaining in the third period. Unfortunately for the Capitals, Ryan Mcdonagh scored in overtime to keep the Rangers alive in the series. The goal was Glencross' first of the postseason. Washington will have a chance to close out the series at home in Game Six. Matt Niskanen and Tom Wilson registered the assists on the Glencross goal.
May 8 - 10:34 PM

Coach Barry Trotz has said that there will not be any lineup changes from Game Seven versus the Islanders to Game One versus the Rangers.

That means that forward Curtis Glencross will remain in the lineup, while forwards Michael Latta and Eric Fehr watch from the press box.
Apr 30 - 6:12 PM

Head Coach Barry Trotz confirmed that Curtis Glencross will play in game seven against the Islanders.

Glencross was acquired from Calgary before the trade deadline, but he has been a healthy scratch in the last three games of this series.
Apr 26 - 12:10 PM

Forward Curtis Glencross and goalie Justin Peters will be scratched for Thursday's Game Five against the New York Islanders.

This will be Glencross' second straight benching of the series, suggesting that he may have to get comfortable in Coach Trotz' doghouse as 20 year old rookie Andre Burakovsky will play in his place. Peters meanwhile has been supplanted by Philipp Grubauer as Braden Holtby's backup, and has no fantasy value.

Curtis Glencross will be a late scratch for Tuesday's Game Four against the New York Islanders as Michael Latta and Andre Burakovsky slide in.

A surprising turn of events as the Capitals acquired Glencross at the trade deadline. A closer look at his numbers shows that the veteran winger has posted just seven points in 21 games, including the first three playoff games, with Washington. Burakovsky is replacing the injured Eric Fehr, by the way.
Apr 21 - 7:13 PM

Curtis Glencross missed Tuesday's practice for personal reasons.

His wife went into labor with their third child, so he was excused from the session. Glencross will probably be available to play in Wednesday's game against Boston. He has seven points in 16 games with the Capitals.
Apr 7 - 3:10 PM

Curtis Glencross will play in his 500th NHL game on Saturday.

Glencross has played the majority of his career with the Calgary Flames (418 games) but the 32-year-old started his career with the Anaheim Ducks and also played in Columbus and Edmonton. He was dealt to the Capitals on March 1 and has four goals and six points in 10 games. Congratulations to Glencross on the accomplishment.

Curtis Glencross amassed three points in the Capitals’ 6-1 win over the Sabres on Saturday night.

The deadline day acquisition tallied a first-period goal and two assists, one on Jay Beagle’s goal and the other on Joel Ward’s power-play tally. Glencross has goals in two games in a row now, though with just 11 goals and 32 points, he has no fantasy appeal. Alex Ovechkin had a goal and an assist, while Brooks Laich and Marcus Johansson got the others. Mike Green and Nicklas Backstrom recorded two assists.
Mar 7 - 9:43 PM

Curtis Glencross snapped his first as Capital on the power play to open the scoring just 2:51 into the first period, but the Wild would prevail 2-1 on Thursday night.

It was a goal-scorer's goal as Glencross freed his blade from Ryan Suter, and ripped a snapshot just inside the corner of the crossbar over Devan Dubnyk's shoulder. Glencross now has 10 goals and 29 points in 55 games this season. Three of his goals have come with the man advantage.
Mar 6 - 12:15 AM

Curtis Glencross will kick off his Washington Capitals career skating to the left of Evgeny Kuznetsov and Troy Brouwer on the Caps' second line, Tuesday night versus Columbus.

Through 53 games with Calgary this season Glencross has nine goals, 28 points, 39 PIMs, 41 blocks, and 103 hits. "Curtis gives him a skill guy but also gives him that sort of grit on the wing," Trotz said of Glencross. "(Kuznetsov) is a playmaker. Curtis goes to the net and has a really good shot. Brouwer does the same thing. We’ll see how it works out."
Mar 3 - 6:30 PM

Curtis Glencross won't play in Sunday's game against Toronto.

Glencross was acquired earlier today from Calgary but his flight didn't make it in time for puck drop. Michael Latta will also watch this game from the press box.
