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.

Jarome Iginla is eager to bounce back this season.

"I want to be better than I was last year," said Iginla. "I had a good start last year, a tough middle and a good last quarter — as far as my play. At times I got away from being gritty or aggressive enough. I'd like to get back to that. I'm not trying to save myself for anything. I want to come back and be physical, a net-front presence and I still enjoy playing a lot. I still feel good. I feel strong. I want to be apart of, first of all, the playoffs, and I feel that we can do that." He recorded 22 goals in 2015-16, which ranked him second on the team, and he earned 47 points in 82 contests. Iginla's role on the team still has to be determined, but he may be a third- or fourth-line forward and a power-play performer this campaign.

The 38-year-old is up to 19 goals and 38 points in 65 games.
