The Edmonton Oilers have obtained rookie forward Curtis Glencross from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for defenceman Dick Tarnstrom.
The 6’1”, 195 pound left winger from Kindersley, Saskatchewan has scored six goals and six assists for 12 points in 36 games with the Blue Jackets this season and is tied for 20th in scoring among NHL rookies. He is +3 with 25 penalty minutes and has netted one powerplay goal and one game-winning goal.
Now in his first full NHL season, the 25-year-old (December 28, 1982), forward made his NHL debut with the Anaheim Ducks on January 13, 2007 versus Colorado and scored his first career NHL goal in his debut against the Avalanche. He played two games with Anaheim in 2006-07 before being traded to Columbus on January 26, 2007. He was scoreless in seven games with the Blue Jackets last season.
