Curtis Glencross: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
With the purge of veteran talent over the last year in Calgary, Glencross is one of the best remaining forwards in Calgary. In the shortened 2012-13 season, he potted 15 goals and notched 11 assists in 40 games, which translates to 30 goals over a full campaign. With players like Jarome Iginla and Alex Tanguay gone, Glencross will be expected to help carry the offensive load in 2013-14. He will likely man the wing on a line with either Lee Stempniak or Jiri Hudler, and be centered by Michael Cammalleri, which actually is a decent combination for point production. He will get a lot of power play time as well and could certainly top 30 goals and 60 points -- both career marks -- next season.
Glencross continued his steady upward climb into the upper echelon of wingers in the NHL, with 48 points in 67 games in 2011-12. He potted 25 goals for the first time in his career, and had a stretch of seven straight games with a goal. His season ended in frustrating fashion, however, as his goal streak came to a finish with a game misconduct in game eight, and he only had five points in his final 13 games. If he can get a little more consistency, he will be a great pickup for 2012-13. He should top 50 points for the first time in his career, and the 29-year-old only seems to be getting better.
Glencross netted 24 goals and 43 points last season, both of which were career highs. The winger is looking to pot 30 goals next year, but there are still many critics who think that is unrealistic given Calgary's defense-based system. If Glencross does in fact achieve his goal, he could help the Flames return to the postseason, while giving fantasy owners a nice return on the investment.
The Flames believe enough in Glencross that they bought out Nigel Dawes' contract as their way of working out of salary cap issues. Glencross got off to a strong start, but missed the final 12 games of the season with a knee injury suffered in a knee-to-knee collision. He ended the season with 33 points (15-18), but only four of those points came on the power play. Most of his time will be spent on the third line, and he'll average about a minute of power play time per game.
Glencross came out of nowhere to notch 40 points and a plus-14 for the Flames last season. Calgary certainly knew what it was doing when it acquired the 26-year-old, as he has improved from one point and a minus-5 in his first season to 25 points and a plus-8 in his second season to last season's output. He has quite a bit of potential, and should put up around 45-55 points this season.
Glencross was one of the few offseason signings the Flames took part in. The winger scored 25 points in 62 games with Columbus and Edmonton last season, and hopes to find a spot on one of the top two Calgary lines. However, he will likely end up on the third line and should finish the season with 30-35 points, not enough to warrant much fantasy consideration.
Glencross showed some offensive ability in the AHL last season, but his physical style of play may be better suited to the third or fourth line in the NHL.
Glencross will begin the season at Portland (AHL) but could get a taste of the NHL if the Ducks suffer a few injuries.
