After being released from a second tryout, Curtis Glencross is weighing his options.

"It’s definitely a setback and heartbreak for me knowing that this could be the end," Glencross said. He's not sure if he wants to hold out in the hope that another opportunity to play in the NHL presents itself or if he should sign in Europe. Another possibility on his mind is taking a job in Calgary. One thing he's unlikely to do is accept a two-way contract with the understanding that he'll play in the AHL.

Curtis Glencross has been released from his professional tryout with Colorado.

Glencross took part in camps with the Maple Leafs and Avalanche on PTOs, but he wasn't able to stick with either squad. Now, he will have to look elsewhere to continue playing.

Curtis Glencross has gone from one professional tryout to another, as he will join the Colorado Avalanche.

The Avs have three preseason games remaining on the schedule this week and Glencross could be in the lineup as soon as Tuesday against Calgary. He was released from his PTO with Toronto over the weekend.

Curtis Glencross has been released from his professional tryout.

This is a little surprising considering how little depth the Maple Leafs have on their roster. Glencross had 35 points in 71 games with the Flames and Capitals in 2014-15. He should be able to latch on with another NHL club in the near future.
Sep 27 - 2:31 PM

Curtis Glencross has reportedly agreed to join the Maple Leafs on a professional tryout.

He picked up 13 goals and 35 points between Calgary and Washington last season. Glencross will be competing with fellow PTO addition Devin Setoguchi for a roster spot.

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.

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.
