Curtis Glencross‘ string of bad luck continued this afternoon. He will not return to Calgary’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins after falling awkwardly into the boards during his first shift, reports the Calgary Flames.

Although the Flames are calling it a lower-body injury, his knee is hurt again, according to Sportsnet’s Roger Millions.

The 30-year-old forward was sidelined for about a month due to a knee problem before returning on Dec. 12. This was just his sixth contest since rejoining the Flames.

When he has been able to play, he’s been solid with six goals and 12 points in 20 matches, not including today’s contest. He has also been averaging 18:50 minutes per game.

    Ouch! It looked like he twisted his ankle when the toe of his skate was stuck in a rut when he fell backyards. That must have put enormous stress on his knew. Hope he’ll be ok.
