Jarome Iginla netted a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Nashville Predators.
He was finally able to put his nine-game goal drought to bed. Iginla's been pretty quiet from an offensive standpoint this season, but he was productive tonight. Expect this to be one of his last games in an Avalanche uniform, as he'll likely be traded before next week's trade deadline. The veteran has eight goals and 10 assists in 59 games this season.

Jarome Iginla gave his trade value a bit of a boost with a goal during Saturday's 5-2 win over the Jets.

It's the future Hall of Famer's seventh goal of the season, giving him 14 points through 49 games.

Jarome Iginla admitted that he wouldn't mind being traded before the March 1st deadline.

Iginla is closer to the end of his career than the beginning, so staying on a losing team isn't ideal for him. He's put together a great career, but he still hasn't won the Stanley Cup. So being shipped to a contender is something he'd welcome. "As it gets closer, I imagine we’ll talk more about what (GM Joe Sakic) sees, what opportunities are there. It’s not bailing. It’s not that I said, ‘I want out,’ or anything. It’s just being realistic. Now we’re in the last month before the trade deadline. I’m saying if it works for the team and they’re going to get something, hopefully, it works for me if I’m going to have a chance to be part of the playoffs. I don’t know how much longer I have." Many teams would like to add a veteran or two before the deadline, but it'll be interesting to see how much interest there is in Iginla, who has just 12 points this season.

Despite lighting the lamp 617 times thus far, good for 16th-most all-time, Jarome Iginla was not named to the NHL's list of the 100 greatest players ever.

The two-time Rocket Richard and one-time Art Ross trophy winner has made a career out of doing what many believe is the most essential task for a forward - score the goals. To wit, he's scored at least 30 goals 12 times already in his career, with 11 coming in a row bookended by multiple seasons falling just shy. Iginla also ranks 34th all-time in points 1,285, which is well more than a player he'll always be inextricably linked to - Joe Nieuwendyk who was named to the top 100 list. Nieuwendyk, by the way, who has three Cups, a Calder and a Conn Smythe to his name, posted 564 goals and 1,126 points.

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.

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.
