After spending 16 years with the Calgary Flames, Jarome Iginla will take the Scotiabank Saddledome ice as a visitor for the first time in his career.
Although Iginla was the face of the franchise in Calgary for over a decade and the Flames’ leader in games, goals and points, the winger could not be happier with where he is now — sporting the jersey with the spoked-B.
Before puck drop, Iginla spoke highly of his former home, admitting that he was feeling a mix of nerves and excitement as he took the ice, but accompanied by a standing ovation, the Calgary faithful made sure he felt right at home once again.
Check out the above video to hear more about Iginla’s homecoming.
