Iginla takes part in Flames practice

Jarome Iginla skated at Calgary Flames training camp on Wednesday after missing the first three days with a groin injury.

"Thankfully I felt really good out there today," Iginla said following practice, according to The Canadian Press. "I didn't feel it and it felt way better than last week. Last week, it didn't feel very good at all."

Iginla, 35, said he believes he will play in the season opener Sunday against the San Jose Sharks.

The report said he skated at practice with center Alex Tanguay and Curtis Glencross.

The Flames captain is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after this season. He has played his entire 1,188-game career with the Flames.

Quote of the Day

Unless he really collapses, I don't see him going anywhere. I've been very impressed with his composure and maturity. Once the regular season started, he was a different guy; it was like game on and almost as if he's been around for a long time.
