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.

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.

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.

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."

The Washington Capitals have acquired Curtis Glencross from the Calgary Flames in exchange for a second and third round pick in 2015.

Glencross had to waive his no-trade clause to go to Washington. The 32-year-old has nine goals and 28 points in 53 games for Calgary this season. His 0.53 point-per-game average this year is his lowest since the 2009-10 season (0.49). The Capitals have more offensive talent than Calgary so it wouldn't be shocking if Glencross produces a little more frequently down the stretch.

Curtis Glencross was pulled off the ice during Calgary's practice on Sunday.

All signs point to Glencross being traded but his new destination hasn't been revealed just yet. We will provide an update for you as soon as the accurate information is released.

Do not be surprised if Curtis Glencross has played his last game for the Calgary Flames.

The Flames had been trying to ink Glencross but that apparently will not happen and the winger is willing to revoke his no-movement clause in his contract if certain teams (Kings, Blackhawks, Lightning, Predators or Ducks) are interested in acquiring his services. Glencross is slated to become a UFA at the end of the season and the Flames do not want him to just walk when July 1 comes around.
Mar 1 - 4:26 AM

Curtis Glencross scored a goal and got into a fight in Calgary's 3-1 victory on Wednesday.

Glencross has 28 points and 39 penalty minutes in 52 games this season. That might have been his last game with Calgary as the Flames might trade him before the March 2 deadline given that he's set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. "Until I get the call that says I'm something different, I'm a Flame," said Glencross. "We'll see what happens. I don't know what's going to happen."

Curtis Glencross is likely to be dealt to another contender before the March 2 trade deadline, according to Sportsnet’s Elliott Friedman.

The Flames are working with Glencross on a deal. The veteran has a no-movement clause in his contract, but has reportedly OK’d moves to the Kings, Lightning, Predators, Blackhawks and Ducks. Glencross will become an unrestricted free agent in the offseason and is unlikely to re-sign in Calgary. He has eight goals and 27 points this season.

The Orange County Register is reporting that the Anaheim Ducks could be interested in the services of Curtis Glencross.

The Ducks are in need of a forward to play alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry as they haven't had anyone stick on the top line since Bobby Ryan was dealt to Ottawa. Glencross got his start in Anaheim and is in the final year of a long-term contract. Stay tuned as the rumor mill will be churning out a lot of possibilities in the upcoming days.
