Flames sign Glencross, bring back Vandermeer
The Calgary Flames signed free agent forward Curtis Glencross and re-signed defenceman Jim Vandermeer on Wednesday.
Glencross, 25, scored 15 goals and added 10 assists last season in 62 games split between the Columbus Blue Jackets and Edmonton Oilers. The left-winger from Kindersley, Sask., signed a three-year contract with Calgary.
Jim Vandermeer, 28, also signed a three-year deal to remain with the Flames. He had three goals and 14 assists in 75 games split between Chicago Blackhawks, Philadelphia Flyers and the Flames last season. The Caroline, Alta., native has 17 goals and 51 assists (68 points) in 267 career NHL games.
Glencross is the latest addition to a revamped group of forwards in Calgary. The Flames obtained forward Rene Bourque from the Chicago Blackhawks for a second round pick on Tuesday and replaced Alex Tanguay with Mike Cammalleri in a three-team deal at the NHL draft on June 20.
