Iginla Returns in Calgary



The Calgary Flames hired their former player as Special Advisor to the General Manager.

Craig Conroy made the following statement:


"Dating as far back as our playing days with the Flames, Jarome and I have always talked about one day working together in the NHL.

That day has finally come and I'm happy to welcome him back to Calgary. Jarome provides a creative approach and smart hockey mind to our team blended with a passion for the game, and a desire to win the Stanley Cup.

Our relationship goes back 20 years and includes being opponents and teammates combined with a long-standing friendship.

While our views on the game are similar, we often challenged each other on systems and playing style, always pushing each other to be better.

I look forward to our team benefiting from his fierce competitiveness, career experiences and love of hockey."


Iginla played 16 seasons in Calgary and it looks like he isn't done with the franchise!
