A Calgary Flames legend helped Milan Lucic celebrate his 1,000th NHL game.
Jarome Iginla shared a few terrific stories about Lucic while congratulating the Flames forward for playing in the milestone game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday.
Lucic played in his 110th game as a member of the Flames after also playing for the Boston Bruins, Los Angeles Kings and Edmonton Oilers. But the Flames family was out in force for the Lucic celebration, and Iginla, the Flames leader in games, goals and points who played with Lucic in Boston, was the most prominent ex-Calgary player to voice his support.
Iginla wasn't the only ex-teammate to voice congratulations. Johnny Boychuk, Andrew Ference and Gregory Campbell, who Lucic played with in Boston, joined Iginla in showing their support as did Flames captain Mark Giordano.
Calgary also shared a highlight montage from some of Lucic's best moments as a member of the Flames.
Lucic had an assist and one shot on goal in 13:05 in Calgary's 3-2 overtime win.
