Discussions for a new Curtis Glencross deal in Calgary will take place in the next few weeks.

"I've talked to Brad [Treliving, new Flames GM] a few times now and my agent has also been in touch with him numerous times," Glencross said. "The plan is they want to get the ball rolling after the [Aug 1.] arbitration thing with [Joe] Colborne, and get to talking. Hopefully we can get something done sooner rather than later, and not have to worry about a contract during the season." Glencross, 31, put up good offensive numbers through an injury-plagued 2013-14 season, with 12 goals and 24 points in 38 games. From 2010-12, Glencross averaged 25 goals and 45 points a season. Glencross said he took a hometown discount on his current deal (four years at $10.2 million, which expires next July) and isn't really interested in doing it again. "It'll be a little bit different this time around," Glencross said, explaining that the next contract likely will be his final one in the NHL.
