Daily Primer Dec. 10: Iginla returns to Calgary

Tuesday, 12.10.2013 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider


It will be an emotional night for Jarome Iginla on Tuesday when the Boston Bruins' right wing returns to Scotiabank Saddledome for the first time since the Calgary Flames traded him on March 28, an organization he represented for 16 seasons.

The future Hall of Famer practiced with the Bruins in Calgary on Monday and afterwards admitted he isn't sure what to expect.

"I don't have a lot of expectations. I hope it's positive," Iginla said of what will go through his head while his Bruins face the Flames (9:30 p.m. ET, TSN, NESN). "I had great experiences here. I love playing here. I'm going to enjoy playing here [Tuesday] being back at the Saddledome. I hope it's positive. I don't know, but I don't have a lot of expectations or anything. I just want to enjoy it. It's a thrill for me too and it will be for my family. It'll be something different. I imagine it'll be a little bit different at the start, but it'll be cool."

Here's a closer look at the action Tuesday:

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik is dealing with headaches and some neck pain stemming from the concussion he sustained Saturday night against the Boston Bruins, general manager Ray Shero said Monday from the Board of Governors meeting.

Orpik was placed on injured reserve Monday.

"He's resting," Shero said. "It's one of those things probably, with a concussion, that we're going to have to wait and see and kind of see how he reacts. Right now [he's] really not doing too much, just resting."

Orpik was pulled down from behind by Boston forward Shawn Thornton, who then punched Orpik twice in the head. The defenseman was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital for observation, but was released in time to leave Boston with the team following Pittsburgh's 3-2 loss at TD Garden.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- The salary cap for the 2014-15 season is projected to be approximately $71 million, a growth of more than 10 percent, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said at the League's Board of Governors meeting on Monday.

The salary cap for this season is $64.3 million after growing to $70.2 million during the 2012-13 season.

In addition, the Board ratified the League's 12-year, $5.2 billion Canadian national television and multimedia rights agreement with Rogers Communications during the first session of the two-day meeting. The agreement with Rogers, the largest media-rights deal in League history, begins next season and money from that deal impacts the League's projection for next season's salary cap.

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.

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.
