Veteran winger Curtis Glencross has received a training camp tryout — but it’s not with the team some expected.
Per Toronto’s Fan 590 radio, the Leafs have signed Glencross to a PTO. The news comes just days after the 32-year-old was rumored to be on his way to Colorado’s camp, where he would’ve been reunited with ex-Calgary teammates Jarome Iginla and Alex Tanguay.
That Toronto’s taking a flier on Glencross shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, as the club has a history of bringing in veteran forwards on PTOs.
A two-time 20-goal scorer, Glencross has a very small connection to new Toronto bench boss Mike Babcock, as he broke in with Anaheim’s AHL affiliate — then in Cincinnati — during Babcock’s final year as Ducks head coach.
Prior to taking the Ducks gig, Babcock was the bench boss in Cincy.
