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. Sep 21 - 11:49 AM

Iginla scored his second goal of the game in dramatic fashion, giving his team the winner over the Habs with 2:03 remaining in the third period. It was his 17th goal of the season and 606th of his career. Last Thursday, Iginla notched two goals and added an assist in a 4-3 win over the Ottawa Senators. Erik Johnson also scored for the Avs Wednesday against Montreal. His goal was posted while Colorado was shorthanded in the second period and it tied the game at 1-1. Johnson now has nine goals on the season. The Avs were 0-3-1 in their four previous home games and 2-4-1 since the NHL All-Star break. Matt Duchene assisted on both Iginla goals Wednesday and has 21 on the season.

Jan 9 - 12:39 AM

Jarome Iginla became the 19th player in NHL history to score 600 career goals on Monday night.

His shot caromed in off Los Angeles defenseman Jake Muzzin, so he wasn't sure it was his goal at first. "I definitely didn't want to cheer too early in case it went off one of our guys," said Iginla. The veteran winger was happy to get "lucky" with the bounce. Now that the milestone marker is behind him it won't be in the back of his mind anymore, which should help him moving forward.

Jan 5 - 1:01 AM

Coach Patrick Roy wants his players to stop looking for Jarome Iginla when there are better plays to be made.

"I thought we had good intention, (but) I guess we focused more in seeing Iggy scoring that 600th instead of playing our game," Roy said after Saturday's 4-0 loss to Calgary. "We had a few good chances and we tried to pass the puck to him instead of bringing it to the net. For example, (Alex) Tanguay is all alone in front of the net and he's trying a little (pass) to Iggy. We're going to have to refocus. It's not that I don't want Iggy scoring his 600th, but we need to play our game." Iginla doesn't want the special treatment either, but the sooner he gets the goal the better it will be.
