Flames, Curtis Glencross to discuss contract extension after Aug. 1

Jonathan Dyer / USA TODAY Sports

Curtis Glencross is hoping to nail down an extension with the Calgary Flames before entering the final season of his current deal.

In conversation with Sportsnet 960, the oft-injured 31-year-old revealed that the two sides will begin negotiations in the coming weeks. 

"The plan is they want to get the ball rolling after the [Aug 1.] arbitration thing with [Joe] Colborne, and get to talking," Glencross said. "Hopefully we can hopefully get something done sooner rather than later, and not have to worry about a contract during the season."

Glencross remained productive in limited action last season, netting 12 goals and 24 points in 38 games.

He is entering the final season of a four-year, $10.2-million deal that will pay him $2.5 million in his seventh season with the Flames.
