Jarome Iginla skated with the AHL's Providence Bruins on Tuesday.
Iginla underwent hip surgery four months ago and he would like to play again this year. "I'd love to still play. This is kind of the first step, getting out here and seeing how it is," said the veteran forward. " ... I wanted to see if I can still go. I don't have any deals at this point." Bruins sources say the big club is doing this more as a favor, but if Iginla were going to sign with a team it would have to be by 3 p.m. ET next Monday to make him eligible for the playoffs.

Hockey Canada has reached out to veterans Jarome Iginla, Shane Doan and Mike Fisher regarding the 2018 Winter Olympics.

They are all unrestricted free agents and they are considering retirement, but they could also find NHL homes for the 2017-18 season if the right situation comes along. "As Hockey Canada we have tremendous respect for all of those players," said Hockey Canada's vice-president of hockey operations Scott Salmond. "There's no question that their leadership and their experience could be invaluable to our team."

Jarome Iginla has spoken to some teams this summer, but he might retire if he doesn't find a team that works well for his family.

"It’s not as cut and dry as when I was young and we didn’t have any kids," Iginla said. "There is a point where we don’t want to keep moving them. If I keep playing, I look forward to that. I’ll be ready. If I don’t, I’ve had a great run and I’m very thankful for that." The 40-year-old forward is coming off a rough season where he was limited to 14 goals and 27 points in 80 contests. He believes that he can bounce back in 2017-18 though if he does extend his career. Iginla, who hasn't won the Stanley Cup, added that at this stage he'd want to be on a contending team.

Jarome Iginla is unlikely to re-sign with the Los Angeles Kings.

Nothing has been decided, but it appears that the Kings will be looking at other options on Saturday. Iginla would provide a team with a wealth of experience, but he's not much of an offensive threat at this point. With that in mind it will be interesting to see if the 40-year-old attracts much demand on the open market.

Jarome Iginla said he is "preparing and planning to play again" next season.

Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reported the news on Tuesday night after he got a text from the veteran winger. This shouldn't come as a surprise because Iginla made it known that he wanted to return after the 2016-17 campaign finished. He registered 27 points in 80 games between Colorado and Los Angeles last year. Iginla is eligible for unrestricted free agency in July.

Jarome Iginla would like to return for another NHL season.

He would welcome the chance to return to Los Angeles, but he isn't sure if the team's new management group wants him back. Iginla tallied six goals and nine points in 19 games with the Kings after he was acquired from Colorado. He will turn 40 on July 1 when he is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent.

Jarome Iginla hasn't decided if he'll try to extend his career to the 2017-18 campaign, but he's leaning towards doing so.

"It’s been actually a lot of fun being back and the race and meaningful games and things so I would say I’m leaning more towards believing I’ll come back," Iginla said. "It’s fun and I want it to be but at the same time I’ve got to go and talk with the family and see what is." Iginla spent most of the season with the Colorado Avalanche, but he was acquired by Los Angeles. Although he recorded just 27 points this season, he had nine points in 19 contests with the Kings. He'll turn 40 in July and it's no surprise that he's declined since his prime, but there still might be some interest in his services if he decides to play another season.

Jarome Iginla skipped Friday's practice.

The reason for that isn't known, but it's believed that Iginla was just taking the day off, so take this as just an FYI. There's no indication that he's hurt, so expect him to play on Saturday unless there are further developments.

Jarome Iginla was held pointless Sunday to halt a three game points streak.

On the bright side, Iginla played in his 1,550th NHL game, surpassing Alex Delvecchio for 12th place on the all-time list. Iginla was a great pick up at the deadline as he has six goals and 14 points in 15 games and with the Kings eliminated on Sunday from the playoffs, the Avalanche will not receive anything from Los Angeles for Iginla.

With his goal against the Canucks Friday night, Jarome Iginla passed Joe Sakic on the career goal scoring list.

It was Iginla's 625th NHL goal, and pushed him past Joe Sakic into 15th all-time. Iginla also tied Alex Delvecchio for 12th on the all-time games played list with 1549. Iginla has not had a good season and has been slowing down for a couple of years now, however, it is nice to see him have some success in what will be his final few NHL games.

Jarome Iginla scored a goal in a 2-0 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Friday night.

Since being traded to the Kings, Iginla has now picked up six goals and eight points in 14 games. He's showing he still has gas in the tank and that his early season struggles might just have been due to him being stuck on a terrible Avalanche team. With the Kings likely to miss the playoffs, the only way the Avalanche will get any return for Iginla will be if the Kings re-sign the veteran forward at the conclusion of the season.

Jarome Iginla netted a goal and an assist in a much needed 4-1 win against Calgary Wednesday night.

Iginla has visited his old haunting grounds of Scotiabank Saddledome six times since leaving Calgary in 2012-13. He had not scored a point in any of visits back until tonight. Iginla scored an unassisted goal in the second period after having to sit out five minutes of the first period for a fight with Deryk Engelland. Iginla also connected with Marian Gaborik to assist on Jeff Carter’s third-period goal.

Jarome Iginla scored the only Kings goal as they lost 2-1 to the Oilers Tuesday night.

Iginla’s goal was unassisted and as it turned out, it was also unaided as the team failed to support his effort with another. This snapped a three-game pointless streak during which he has a -1 rating. In fact, Iginla has only had one positive +/- rating in his last 13 games.

Jarome Iginla isn't sure if he'll play beyond the 2016-17 campaign.

Iginla is wrapping up a three-year, $16 million contract. "I’ve thought about it," he said of his future. "I’ve definitely thought about it, but I don’t know what I’m going to do. I’ve talked with my wife and my kids. I really genuinely don’t know what next year holds. I’m just trying to enjoy this." The 39-year-old has seen his production decline to the point where he has 11 goals and 22 points in 71 games this season. Los Angeles only has a remote shot of making the playoffs at this point, so Iginla's last NHL game might end up being on April 9.

Jarome Iginla made four shots on goal Monday night as the Kings lost 2-0 to the Oilers.

Iginla was brought in from the Avalanche to provide some excitement. In eight games with the new club, he scored three goals and one assist, but he found another way to get the adrenalin pumping Monday. Iginla squared off with Patrick Maroon at the end of the first and again as soon as they were released from the sin bin in the second for a total of seven Penalty Infraction Minutes.
