Former UAA Glencross bags his 100th NHL goal

Posted on February 15, 2013 

Congrats to former UAA winger Curtis Glencross, who tonight bagged his 100th NHL goal skating for the Calgary Flames in a 5-2 loss to visiting St. Louis.

He was just an undersized kid -- read, whisper thin -- when he came to UAA and he turned a 21-goal sophomore season into a $750,000 signing bonus with the Anaheim Ducks. A two-time 20-goal guy in the NHL, he's making big bucks and making a nice career. In 370 NHL games, he owns 100-98--198 totals.

And how's this for coincidence. The night Glencross scored his 100th, who is in Sullivan Arena watching UAA and Nebraska-Omaha tonight? David McNab, the Ducks' senior vice president of hockey operations and the guy who signed Glencross to his first NHL deal.
