Jarome Iginla picked up an assist and nearly fought Calgary captain Mark Giordano Wednesday night.
The linesmen broke up the potential tilt before it happened, though. Iginla was heading to the penalty box on a holding call when he dropped the gloves to fight his former teammate. The 39-year-old veteran has posted just 10 points in 38 games this year. Jan 5 - 9:46 AM

Jarome Iginla could be playing his final game in Calgary Wednesday.

The long-time Flame is currently with the Colorado Avalanche and this could be his final season in the NHL as he turns 40 the same day Canada turns 150. Iginla had 525 goals and 1095 points in a Flames uniform, both team records. The ovations will be great for Iginla as Flames fans will let him know how special a player he was during his reign in Calgary. He has five goals and nine points this season after 16 seasons scoring 20-plus goals in the NHL. He could get dealt near the deadline and that would be another way for him to get a chance to return to Calgary. Stay tuned.

Jarome Iginla is close to reaching a couple of important milestones.

Iginla needs to play five more games to tie Steve Yzerman for 15th on the all-time list with 1514. He also needs nine more goals to reach Joe Sakic's mark of 625, which is also 15th all-time. Iginla can also climb the all-time list for game-winning goals. His 97 game winners are just one short of Bobby Hull's 98, which would put him in seventh all-time.

Jarome Iginla scored in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to Calgary.

He now has 616 goals in his career. Iginla is nine markers behind Colorado GM Joe Sakic for 15th on the all-time list. However, the veteran forward has collected just nine points in 34 games this season and time may be running out for his playing days.

Jarome Iginla ended his nine-game goal drought during Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Jets.

The future Hall of Famer is now up to a paltry four goals and eight points in 30 games so far. We'd leave him on the wire, unfortunately.

Jarome Iginla will play in his 1500th NHL game on Saturday night.

The Avalanche are in Montreal visiting the Canadiens. Iginla has put together an incredible career. He's scored 614 goals, 1279 points and 1001 penalty minutes in his career with the Flames, Penguins, Bruins and Avs. He becomes the 16th player in league history to reach that milestone. Of all the active players in the NHL right now, Iginla ranks second in games played. Only Jaromir Jagr has suited up more times.

Jarome Iginla added to his career totals during Tuesday's 4-3 loss to Nashville.

He picked up a helper to give him six points on the season through 24 games. Iginla has compiled 1,279 points during his career along with 614 goals. Hopefully this isn't the end of the road for a legendary scorer.

Jarome Iginla is expected to play Thursday despite some bumps and bruises.

"He got banged up a little bit last night," coach Jared Bednar said of Iginla and Tuesday's loss to Nashville. "He took a shot in the ankle, I think, and a stick in the back. He's a guy that's been playing hard for us and want him ready for the game, that's the important thing, so he took today's practice off." He didn't practice Wednesday, but maintenance days aren't anything new for the veteran winger this season.

After going 11 games without scoring a goal, Jarome Iginla finally found the twine on Saturday.

It wasn't enough, however, as Iginla's Colorado Avalanche dropped a 3-2 shootout loss to the Vancouver Canucks. Iginla has just three goals and five points in 20 games so far in 2016-17. To be fair to the 39-year-old, he hasn't enjoyed a lot of puck luck, either.

Jarome Iginla hasn't scored a goal in 11 consecutive contests.

The veteran winger has been held to two goals and two assists in 19 matches this campaign. "Unfortunately, I've been a little bit of a slow starter," Iginla said. "I didn't feel as good at the beginning of this year. I feel good now. I've felt good for probably 10 games. I think it's coming. I do. I had good chances (against Edmonton). Sometimes they just don't go. ... You don't get the benefit of the doubt when you get older. You just keep battling and keep going."

Jarome Iginla scored the only goal for Colorado in a 5-1 loss to the Nashville Predators Tuesday night.

The game was not yet out of hand when Iginla scored at the 5:35 minute mark of the first period. His goal tied the game for more than 12 minutes before the Preds’ Matt Irwin scored the game winner later in the first. The Avs are going to have to get more production from their shooters because this was only the second point scored by the right winger.

Jarome Iginla has been practicing with Matt Duchene and Gabriel Landeskog as his linemates.

"I want to be out there, I want to compete and I think I can still help out and be an effective player," said Iginla. "I'm going to keep working and push and try and be a good player that (Bednar) wants out there more times than not. That's my goal. It's no different for me now. I'm going to continue to work on things, as you do all the time as a player." The veteran winger has one goal, which was scored on the power play, and no assists in five games this campaign.

Jarome Iginla picked up 17 penalty minutes in Tuesday's 3-0 loss to the Washington Capitals.

After getting a big win over the Penguins last night, the Avalanche couldn't muster any offense tonight. All of Iginla's penalty minutes came on the same incident, as he got a five minute major for fighting Tom Wilson. He picked up an instigator penalty after that fight and a 10-minute misconduct. Iginla has one goal and 19 penalty minutes in three games.

Jarome Iginla netted his first goal of the year on Monday night.

He scored 13 of his 22 markers last season on the power play, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that his first goal in 2016-17 came with the man advantage.
