Rejoice, for we Have Flames News!: Glencross Re-Signs, Press Conference This Afternoon


Curtis Glencross

#20 / Left Wing / Calgary Flames

6-1

Dec 28, 1982


 

Word broke this morning that the Flames have retained one of their key pieces at forward and one of their most important UFAs in 28-year old Curtis Glencross, choosing not to risk losing him for nothing on the open market. Glencross repeatedly expressed a desire to remain with the Flames going forward, but it was thought by many that his career season (24G, 19A, 43P in 79 GP) had placed him out of the Flames' price range with other important players like Alex Tanguay also slated to become UFAs in under two month's time. 

No dollar figures have been announced as of yet, but the deal is expected to be long-term and perhaps somewhere in the $2.5M-range. Glencross' extension marks the first significant accomplishment or check-mark on the proverbial to-do list for AGM Jay Feaster, making it more and more likely that it will soon be confirmed that he will indeed be the man in charge at the Saddledome. Feaster will hold a press conference alongside Craig Conroy and team president and CEO Ken King this afternoon at 2:30PM MT/4:30 ET, perhaps to confirm and announce details of Glencross' contract. 

Update: Glencross' deal is four years, $2.55M per with an NMC, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie on Twitter
