Curtis Glencross Swatch Card

To me, in his seventh season with the Calgary Flames, Curtis Glencross was part of the fabric of that team, but maybe the 6'1'', 200-pound alternate captain was too much a part of the team's recent and unsuccessful past, he who will become an unrestricted free agent this summer and seemed poised for a big raise that Calgary's current administration didn't see themselves giving him- and they sent him to the Washington Capitals at the trade deadline for a second- and third-round pick in June.

I say sure, he gets injured a lot (he's only played over 70 games twice in the NHL), but he gets points in over 50% of his games, sometimes even over 60%, so while the totals around 15-25 (goals) and 40-50 (points) are ideal middle-six numbers, his points-per-game averages ranks him in definite top-six territory, so in that regards, yes, I see him earning between $4M and $5M per season starting this summer.

More than just known as a hockey player, I've also seen his name associated with the Special Olympics a lot; he seems like a great guy to have in a locker room.

Here he is wearing the Flames' white (away) uniform, with his usual 'A' on the chest, from Panini's 2013-14 Crown Royale set (card #L-CG of the Lords Of The NHL sub-set), featuring a small black game-worn swatch:
