Jarome Iginla scored a goal and an assist in Colorado's 4-3 win over Carolina on Saturday.
Iginla's goal was his first in his last 13 games. The 37-year-old has been a disappointment offensively for the Avalanche, but hopefully his performance against Carolina is a sign of things to come. "There's no question, that felt good seeing it go in," Iginla said. "It was a tough start for us, but guys played hard and we kept coming. (Gabe) Landeskog gave me a nice pass, not too hard, and I was just able to get it away quick and Landy was able to get a screen." Nov 23 - 11:28 AM

Jarome Iginla was held without a point for the third straight game as the Avalanche were thumped by the Islanders by a score of 6-0 Tuesday.

Iginla has recorded just nine points in 17 games this season, disappointing those who used a middle round pick on him in drafts. There's room for improvement here, but expectations shouldn't be set too high for a player at this stage of his career.

Jarome Iginla believes his struggles early into this season are mental and not physical.

"Sometimes, I get watching the play and thinking too much, and then I stop moving," he Iginla. "I need to get moving and doing a little less thinking. You always want to be thinking, but I need to do more moving, be physical, be intense, be good along the wall and in front of the net." The 37-year-old winger said he doesn't feel any different physically than he did last season. Coach Patrick currently has Iginla on a line with Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog, so he'll get his chances to end a slump that has seen him record no goals and two assists in his last eight games.

Jarome Iginla hasn't scored a goal in eight straight games for Colorado.

The 37-year-old has only two goals this season. Iginla signed with the Avs' as an unrestricted free-agent last off-season. The Avs' expected him to bring some goals and veteran leadership to their lineup. He should start producing goals soon, but it's possible that his age is catching up to him. He is an intriguing buy-low candidate right now.

Jarome Iginla is confident that the Avs will be able to turn things around this season.

The Avalanche are 2-4-2 and have struggled to score goals most of the season. "It's been a slow start for the team and myself, but I think it's going to get better. I really do," said Iginla. "Not many teams in the league have not only our young talent, but talent, period. We're going to get it turned around. I'm going to find ways to score goals again, and hopefully we'll look back on this as being a better team for it. Every team goes through tough stretches during the year, and hopefully we can have this be our toughest." The 37-year-old has two goals and seven points in eight games this season.

Jarome Iginla scored his 561st and 562nd goals of his NHL career Friday night against Vancouver.

He broke a tie he had been in with Guy Lafleur and passed Mike Modano for 23rd on the all-time list. Next up are Joe Nieuwendyk and Mats Sundin at 564. Those are some pretty impressive names Iginla is passing. No doubt Iggy will be in the Hall of Fame one day.

All Jarome Iginla had to do on Friday night was get open and the puck would find him.

Iggy tied the game at one late in the first on a ripper of a backhander atop Eddie Lack's crease. He also sprung Matt Duchene loose for a breakaway goal late in the third to make it 5-2, before a skillful tip-in to make it 7-2. Normally garbage-time points wouldn't be noteworthy, but these two were great. He now has seven points in eight games as an Avalanche.

Jarome Iginla's Avalanche debut was a night to forget, as the 37 year-old off-season acquisition did nothing in a 5-0 blowout loss to Minnesota.

Iginla and all of his teammates had an awful night, being badly outplayed by the team that sent the Avs packing in the first round of last year's playoffs. Iginla had no shots in 18:11 of ice time.

Jarome Iginla hasn't recorded a point in three preseason games, so he's been moved to a line with Gabriel Landeskog and Nathan MacKinnon.

Colorado's offense as a whole has struggled in the preseason, with just seven goals for in five games. To make matters worse, the Avalanche have allowed 17 markers against to post a preseason record of 0-4-1. Alex Tanguay has taken Iginla's place on a line with Matt Duchene and Ryan O'Reilly.

Jarome Iginla is already enjoying playing alongside Matt Duchene.

"I think there's some real good chemistry. I've been here about a month now, and although training camp just started a few days ago, it feels like it's been a few weeks now because guys got together early," said Iginla. "I like playing with Dutchy and Factor (Ryan O'Reilly). They're skilled, they're quick and they create a lot. You can tell they've played together a lot, because they have great chemistry, and I just want to add to it." Iginla scored in Sunday's scrimmage to help Team White earn a 4-3 victory. The 37-year-old winger isn't showing signs of slowing down and another strong season should be within his reach.

Jarome Iginla will skate alongside Matt Duchene and Ryan O'Reilly during his first season in Colorado.

Coach Patrick Roy has already revealed how he wants his top-two lines to look prior to the start of practices at training camp. "It's exciting to get going and to be able to play with such good young players," said Iginla. "I feel like I can still do the things I've always done, but I know there will be so many other good players around me." The veteran winger was successful last season on Boston's top line with David Krejci and Milan Lucic and he should be productive again in 2014-15.
