Calgary Flames honour former captain Jarome Iginla prior to facing his Bruins

CALGARY - Jarome Iginla received an extended standing ovation before the opening faceoff of his first game back in Calgary since his trade.

The Calgary Flames honoured their former captain with a video montage, but Scotiabank Saddledome was on its feet before the tribute.

Iginla was a Flame for 16 seasons and team captain for nine before he agreed to be dealt to the Pittsburgh Penguins in March.

He signed with the Boston Bruins as a free agent in the off-season.

Iginla lifted his stick in acknowledgment several times and broke into a wide smile when he heard the familiar chants of "Iggy, Iggy."

Quote of the Day

The fans love it, and it looked like they were having fun. It was great to see this city [Columbus]. They had been waiting a couple years for this game. They did it right.

— Lightning captain Steven Stamkos after the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game on Sunday
