The numbers across from Curtis Glencross' name in an NHL online game summary caught The Blog's eye tonight -- the former UAA star logged 24:34 of ice time for the Calgary Flames in a 3-2 shootout loss at Vancouver.
That seemed like a ton of ice for any forward, and some quick checking confirmed it is the most ice time Glencross, 30 -- God, The Blog feels ancient -- has logged in his 361 career NHL games.
Glencross had an assist in the game, giving him 2-2--4 totals in three matches this season. He's coming off a career-high 26 goals and a career-high 48 points, both in 67 games, last season.
Alas, Glencross did not score in the fifth round of the extended shootout, and that ended the game.
Still, he's got some milestones approaching. He is nearing both his 100th NHL goal, his 100th NHL assist and his 200th NHL point -- he's currently sitting at 96-98--194 totals in 361 career games.
