Calgary Flames make Jarome Iginla a healthy scratch amid trade speculation

Wednesday, 03.27.2013 / 8:35 PM The Canadian Press

CALGARY - The Calgary Flames are keeping Jarome Iginla off the ice amid trade speculation surrounding the team's longtime captain.

Iginla was a healthy scratch ahead of the Flames' home game against the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday.

The 35-year-old is in the final year of his contract after spending 16 seasons in a Flames uniform.

Calgary is 14th in the Western Conference and facing a fourth straight season of playoff-free hockey.

Iginla, who led the Flames to an eventual defeat in the 2003-04 Stanley Cup final, had previously said he wanted to stay in Calgary.

But the team's all-time scoring leader reportedly provided general manager Jay Feaster with a list of teams he would consent to join.
