CALGARY, Alberta (AP) - The Calgary Flames scratched Jarome Iginla from their lineup Wednesday night against Colorado amid trade speculation surrounding the longtime captain.
The 35-year-old Iginla, in his 16th season with the Flames, is in the final year of his contract. Calgary is 14th in the Western Conference and will likely miss the playoffs for the fourth straight season.
Iginla missed a game for the first time since April 7, 2007, ending his consecutive games streak at 441. He has nine goals and 13 assists in 31 games this season. In 1,219 career regular-season games, he has 525 goals and 570 assists.
