CALGARY, AB -- With his goal in the Calgary Flames 5-2 loss to the St. Louis Blues, captain Jarome Iginla has passed Lanny McDonald and is now 75th on the NHL's all-time points leaders list with 1,007 to his name.

Iginla leads the Flames in goals (485), points (1,007) and games played (1,108). He's second only to Al MacInnis in assists. The former Calgary defenceman accrued 609 helpers during his time with the team. Iginla currently has 522.

It is fitting Iginla would score his 1,007 point in St. Louis as he has dominated the Blues throughout his career. In 57 games, he has 27 goals and 68 points against them. He scored his 365 goal, setting a Flames record, against them and earned his 1000 point in St. Louis last season.

The goal also moves him into a tie with Brian Bellows on the NHL's all-time goal-scorers list. He and Bellows both have 485 tallies, placing them 45 overall.

The 34 year-old is in the midst of a career most can only dream about. He's a six-time NHL All-Star, has won the Mark Messier Leadership Award, was awarded the Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy twice, has won the Lester B. Pearson Award, snagged the Art Ross Trophy and snagged the King Clancy Award for his humanitarian work.

In addition to his accomplishments in the NHL, Iginla has won two gold medals while representing Canada at the Winter Olympics (2002 and 2010).

Iginla also managed two Memorial Cups during his tenure with the WHL's Kamloops Blazers. He was awarded the WHL's Player of the Year Award in 1996.

The Flames acquired Iginla from the Dallas Stars on Dec. 19, 1995. He and Corey Millen were traded to Calgary for Joe Nieuwendyk.
