CALGARY, Alberta — The Calgary Flames traded Curtis Glencross to the Washington Capitals on Sunday for second- and third-round picks this year.

The 32-year-old forward is in position to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. He had nine goals and 19 assists in 53 games this season for the Flames.

"As tough as it is to say good bye to everyone in Calgary and the fans — I've had such great support over the years — I'm excited for a new start," Glencross said.

The Flames also claimed defenseman David Schlemko off waivers from the Dallas Stars and placed captain Mark Giordano on the injured list with an undisclosed upper-body injury.

Giordano, a front-runner for the Norris Trophy as the NHL's top defenseman, was listed as out indefinitely several days ago. Giordano has 11 goals and 37 assists for 48 points. He is tied with P.K. Subban of the Montreal Canadiens for the league lead in points among defensemen.
