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. Jun 21 - 12:43 PM

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.
Apr 8 - 10:18 AM

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.
Apr 3 - 8:27 AM

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.
Apr 1 - 1:21 PM

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.
Apr 1 - 12:36 AM

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.
Mar 30 - 12:24 AM

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.
Mar 28 - 11:59 PM

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.
Mar 25 - 10:20 AM

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.
Mar 20 - 11:58 PM

Jarome Iginla found the back of the net in a 2-0 win against Buffalo on Thursday.

Iginla now has three goals in seven games since being acquired by the Los Angeles Kings. He's saw his role increase substantially since the trade with him averaging 17:10 minutes with the Kings compared to 14:45 minutes when he was with Colorado.
Mar 17 - 9:34 AM

Jarome Iginla scored twice, including the winner in a 3-2 overtime win over Nashville on Thursday.

Iginla, who was acquired in a trade from the Colorado Avalanche on March 1, scored his first goal in his third game with Los Angeles in the second period. The 39-year-old would later seal the win for his new team with an overtime power-play goal. He likes playing Nashville as this was his second straight two point night against the Preds. He has 10 total goals this season and 20 points. It remains to be seen if he can actually help the Kings to the playoffs. Marian Gaborik scored the other goal for the Kings.
Mar 10 - 2:07 AM

Jarome Iginla had a rather quiet debut with the Kings.

Iginla logged 15:46 minutes of ice time and didn't get a shot on goal. "Personally, I can get better," Iginla said. "It was a fun game to be a part of. You could tell how important the points were, for them and for us. And to be able to come back and get that in the overtime, back and forth is pretty exciting. It’s amazing how it’s so different at first and pretty cool to be a part of." Iginla is getting a chance to play alongside Anze Kopitar and if the two can mesh then Iginla might have a strong finish to what has otherwise been a quiet season for him.
Mar 3 - 4:44 AM

Jarome Iginla will make his Kings debut on Thursday against the Maple Leafs.

Iginla has just eight goals and 18 points in 61 games this season. He's expected to skate to the left of Anze Kopitar and Marian Gaborik on the team's top line.
