Curtis Glencross LW WAS 13 Hrs

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.

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.

Glencross (lower body) was back on the ice for Wednesday's practice wearing a green jersey, Aaron Vickers of NHL.com reports.

Glencross has been close to a return a few times since getting hurt three weeks ago, but had setbacks. He should return sometime in the next week, but he'll have to take it slower this time around.

Coach Bob Hartley said Thursday that Glencross (lower body) suffered a minor setback in his recovery from injury, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.

Glencross wasn't expected to play Thursday, but the team did expect him to take part in their morning skate. However, the winger evidently didn't recover as well as the Flames had hoped following Wednesday's practice session, so it sounds like his return could be delayed by at least a few more days. His chances of playing in the Flames' next game Saturday against the Oilers don't appear to be promising.
