Glencross potted a power-play goal in Monday's 4-3 win over the Sabres.

Glencross has seen an uptick in scoring since joining the Capitals, tallying four goals and a pair of assists in his first seven games in the nation's capital. He's been especially effective on the man advantage, with three of those points coming on the power-play. The 32-year-old's hot start with his new club makes him worthy of consideration of a late-season addition in leagues that he's still available in.

Glencross notched a goal and two assists in Washington's win over Buffalo on Saturday night.

He's loving life on Capitol Hill -- he has four points (two goals, two assists) in three games and there's a smile on his face. He may have been dumped by his owner while he was still in Calgary. Scour the wire -- you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Glencross scored his first goal as a Capital on Thursday, potting the team's lone tally on a first-period power play in a 2-1 loss to Minnesota.

He went minus-2 without a point in his Washington debut, so it's nice to see Glencross turn in a better effort on his second try. Still, he remains a fairly low-end fantasy option, as his minutes will remain limited -- the winger skated a modest 14:02 in this game.

Glencross practiced with Evgeny Kuznetsov and Troy Brouwer on the team's second line during Monday's practice, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.

After being acquired from the Flames over the weekend for a pair of 2015 draft choices, the Saskatchewan native appears poised to start on the team's second line. While this may change, speculation that Glencross was acquired to play with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom on the top line has yet to be justified, but keep an eye on this situation moving forward, as the streaky forward has some sleeper value in the closing weeks of the season.

The Flames have traded Glencross to the Capitals, TSN.ca reports.

Per the report, the Caps will send the Flames second and third-round picks in the 2015 NHL Draft in exchange for Glencross, who was in the final year of his contract with Calgary. The 32-year-old winger, who had recorded nine goals and 28 points in 53 games with the Flames to date, bolsters the Caps' depth up front for the NHL stretch run, with the immediate effect of the deal on Glencross' fantasy value set to hinge on who his new linemates are.

The Flames asked Glencross to make a list of teams he would be willing to join in a trade, FAN 960's Dean Molberg reports.It sounds as if both parties believe it's time to move on, with the 32-year-old Glencross set to become an unrestricted free agent after the season. Glencross has zero points through his first 10 games in 2015, but he still has a respectable 26 points in 49 games this season.

Glencross (lower body) will return to the lineup Monday, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

It's no surprise Glencross will be able to go Monday, considering that he was able to go through warmups Friday, even though he didn't play in that game. This will be Glencross' first game back since he suffered the injury in mid-January, so monitor his play when he gets on the ice to be sure that he is actually 100 percent healed.

Glencross (lower body) was on the ice for warmups, but didn't participate in any of the team's line rushes, and isn't expected to play Friday, Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun reports.

Glencross's presence in warmups is a bit of a surprise, however, he still isn't expected to play Friday against the Penguins. He can be considered day-to-day until his return to the lineup is confirmed, which could be as soon as Monday against San Jose.

Glencross (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Friday.

Though Glencross was on the ice for practices Wednesday and Thursday, coach Bob Hartley suggested the forward would be held out for Friday's game against the Penguins. It's assumed that will still be the case, but with a couple spots open on the 23-man roster, Glencross was activated anyway. He'll retain a day-to-day tag until his return to the lineup is confirmed, but the expectation is that it won't come until Monday's showdown with the Sharks.

Glencross (lower body) will not play Friday against the Penguins, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.

Glencross has been able to skate the last two days, but the Flames aren't fully convinced he'll be at close enough to full strength to give it a go Friday. Instead, he'll log a couple more practices over the weekend before turning his attention to a return Monday against the Sharks.
