Jarome Iginla registered his 13th goal of the season into an empty net Thursday night.

He sealed a 4-2 win for Colorado against Florida. Iginla tied Hall-of-Famer Mike Bossy for 20th place on the NHL's all-time goal-scoring list. He has recorded 573 goals in 1,355 career games. "It's cool, it's really cool," Iginla said. "When I started, I never would have guessed that. I realize I played a lot more games than he played to get to that total. But I think it's neat. I know what a great goal scorer he was. He got 50 goals every year and it's one of those things, you just keep playing. I've been blessed."

Jarome Iginla scored a pair of goals in Friday's 6-2 loss to Winnipeg.

It's Iginla's second multi-goal game as a member of the Avalanche. The 37-year-old is off to a slow start with his new team, and it's possible that his age has finally caught up to him. Iginla has six goals and 17 points in 27 games this season. The Avalanche have now lost three games in a row. Gabriel Landeskog assisted on both Iginla's goals.

Jarome Iginla will be back in Calgary Thursday night.

He played visited Calgary last season as a member of the Boston Bruins, so this will be his second homecoming.

"But it's a little more relaxed (this time), focused a little more on hockey." He has four goals and 15 points in 25 games this year.

Neither Jarome Iginla nor Daniel Briere practiced on Friday.

It seems it was just a maintenance day off for the 37-year-old veterans. We mention this because occasionally these maintenance days off turn into something more. Not saying that is the case here but just thought you should know that Iginla and Briere sat out.

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."

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.
Tue, Nov 11, 2014 10:32:00 PM

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.
