Wiki

Curtis Glencross (born December 28, 1982) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player for the Calgary Flames of the National Hockey League (NHL). Undrafted by any team, he signed with the Anaheim Mighty Ducks as a free agent in 2004 and has also played for the Columbus Blue Jackets and Edmonton Oilers. He joined the Flames in 2008 as an unrestricted free agent.

Glencross was born December 28, 1982 in Kindersley, Saskatchewan, but grew up in Provost, Alberta. He is the son of Mel and Robin Glencross, and has a younger brother, Matthew, and sister, Kari. His parents both played hockey and say he inherited an intense competitive nature from them. His family moved to Red Deer, Alberta when he was a teenager as his parents began a livestock auction business. Glencross was small for his age, standing less than five feet tall when he was 15, and as a result was often left off the top teams in minor hockey despite having the talent to play; he played Midget C hockey in Provost. He experienced a rapid growth spurt, growing a full foot in a period of 17 months, and as a result was recruited to play Junior A hockey for the expansion Brooks Bandits of the Alberta Junior Hockey League in 2000. He later became the first Bandit alumnus to play in the National Hockey League (NHL).

The Bandits were a last-place team both years Glencross played, but he was among the AJHL's leading goalscorers in 2001–02 with 42 goals. He went undrafted by an NHL team, but had earned interest from National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) schools and was considering returning to Brooks for a third season of junior. Jack Kowal, assistant coach of the University of Alaska-Anchorage Seawolves, had scouted Glencross during the season. Impressed with his ability and intensity on the ice, offered Glencross a full scholarship to play for his school. Glencross played two seasons at Alaska-Anchorage between 2002 and 2004, scoring 32 goals and 57 points in 72 games. He was named the Western Collegiate Hockey Association offensive player of the week for December 15, 2003 after scoring a hat trick against the Colorado College Tigers in a 5–2 win. He led the Seawolves in goals (21) and points (34) in 2002–03.
