Bruins' Iginla excited to be back in Calgary

Monday, 12.09.2013 / 7:56 PM / NHL Insider

Aaron Vickers - NHL.com Correspondent

CALGARY -- In his 16-year tenure with the Calgary Flames, there weren't too many cracks, crannies and crevices at Scotiabank Saddledome that Jarome Iginla didn't know like the back of his hand.

The visitor's dressing room is a new one for the 36-year-old, though.

It's where Iginla held court Monday as a member of the Boston Bruins, addressing nearly three-dozen media members in front of eight cameras one day in advance of his return to the rink he used to call home. The Flames host the Bruins on Tuesday (9:30 p.m. ET, TSN, NESN).

Flames ready to welcome back Iginla

Monday, 12.09.2013 / 4:41 PM / NHL Insider

Aaron Vickers - NHL.com Correspondent

CALGARY -- The Calgary Flames realize their game Tuesday against the Boston Bruins isn't just a weekday, out-of-conference contest in the middle of December.

It's the first return of a franchise face.

Jarome Iginla
Right Wing - BOS
GOALS: 6 | ASST: 11 | PTS: 17
SOG: 79 | +/-: 12
The game marks the first time longtime captain Jarome Iginla returns to Calgary since he was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins on March 27, ending his storied 16-year tenure with the only NHL team he had played for.

"It's going to be a great day for Jarome to come back," Flames coach Bob Hartley said. "Unfortunately in this business you get traded and you need to be in the next city in the next few hours so you don't have time to say thank you the right way. We know how classy this organization and our fans are. [Tuesday] I'm sure that they'll have a chance to say thank you to Jarome and it's going to be the same thing for him. I'm sure he'll want to show his appreciation to our fans."

Twelve hours after the trade with the Penguins was announced, Iginla bid farewell in a somber but upbeat press conference, leaving Calgary as the all-time franchise leader in games played (1,219), points (1,095) and goals (525).

There was no final standing ovation. No celebratory video package. Just a departure to the next NHL city.

But Iginla, now a member of the Bruins after signing with Boston as an unrestricted free agent this summer, finally will receive his farewell from the Flames faithful at Scotiabank Saddledome.

Malkin's resurgence leading Penguins' offense

Monday, 12.09.2013 / 1:35 PM / NHL Insider

Wes Crosby - NHL.com Correspondent

PITTSBURGH -- Evgeni Malkin received some criticism for his start to the season.

He averaged a point per game during his first 22 games, but also struggled through a 15-game goalless stretch. He scored his first goal in more than a month Nov. 22 during the second period of the Pittsburgh Penguins' 4-3 win against the New York Islanders at Consol Energy Center.

Evgeni Malkin
Center - PIT
GOALS: 7 | ASST: 30 | PTS: 37
SOG: 87 | +/-: 1
Malkin, who leads the NHL with 30 assists, entered that game with two assists in each of his previous two games and has become more explosive since. After being named the NHL's Second Star for November, it seems the Hart, Art Ross and Conn Smythe Trophy winner has returned to form.

And after missing two games with a lower-body injury, it appears he's ready to return Monday when the Penguins host the Columbus Blue Jackets (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN). Coach Dan Bylsma told reporters in Pittsburgh that his lineup would be a game-time decision, but Malkin went through the morning skate in his usual second-line center spot, flanked by Jussi Jokinen and Jayson Megna.

The way Malkin was playing prior to his injury, it should be a boost to the Penguns if Malkin returns.
