Jarome Iginla skated with the AHL's Providence Bruins on Tuesday.

Iginla underwent hip surgery four months ago and he would like to play again this year. "I'd love to still play. This is kind of the first step, getting out here and seeing how it is," said the veteran forward. " ... I wanted to see if I can still go. I don't have any deals at this point." Bruins sources say the big club is doing this more as a favor, but if Iginla were going to sign with a team it would have to be by 3 p.m. ET next Monday to make him eligible for the playoffs.
