CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - Jarome Iginla has reached the 500-goal milestone.

The Calgary Flames' captain scored the 500th goal of his career Saturday against the Minnesota Wild.

Iginla came down the right wing and sent a pass in front that went off the skates of two Minnesota players and in past Wild goalie Nicklas Backstrom. The goal at 8:33 of the third period gave Calgary a 2-0 lead.

Iginla is the 42nd player to reach the milestone and the 15th to do it with one team.

His first regular-season goal came in his first regular-season game, Oct. 5, 1996, against the Vancouver Canucks.
