UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Jarome Iginla spent parts of 17 seasons as the go-to guy for the Calgary Flames, on and off the ice.
A star player and overall leader on a club that was often outside the hockey spotlight, the fact he forged what will surely be a Hall of Fame career is a testament to his skills.
None of those seasons ended with a Stanley Cup championship, and the Flames haven't even made the playoffs since 2009. But Iginla's career has been reborn with a late-season trade to the Pittsburgh Penguins, who have lots of talent and as good a chance as any to claim the title this year.
