Feaster: Iginla not getting traded @NHLdotcom

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Before the Calgary Flames head into an offseason that could bring changes, acting general manager Jay Feaster made one thing clear - the captain is going nowhere.

On Tuesday, Feaster stressed that Jarome Iginla will definitely return for a 15th straight season with the Flames.

"Jarome isn't going anywhere," Feaster said. "Jarome is the face of the franchise in many ways. Jarome is a guy who at times this season has carried this hockey club."

Feaster says building the Flames around a core group that includes Iginla is the best way to have success moving forward.

"There's no doubt in my mind that Jarome wants to win a Stanley Cup and he wants to win it here and we want to win a Stanley Cup and win it with Jarome here," he said. "It's a nonstarter."

Feaster also said that a plan is in the works to re-sign unrestricted free agents Alex Tanguay and Curtis Glencross.
