CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -The Calgary Flames signed captain Jarome Iginla and assistant captain Robyn Regehr to five-year contract extensions that begin following the 2007-08 season.
Iginla, a forward who turned 30 on Sunday, led the Flames with 39 goals and 94 points in 70 games last season despite a leg injury. He could have become an unrestricted free agent after next season.
Iginla, a two-time All-Star, has 324 goals and 340 assists in 778 career regular-season games, all with the Flames. He has been the team's captain since the start of the 2003 season.
``There are a lot of great hockey cities. For the fans and the passion, there isn't a city that beats Calgary,'' Iginla said.
Regehr, a 27-year-old native of Brazil, has spent seven seasons with the Flames. The defenseman played in 78 games last season, recording two goals and 19 assists. He led the Flames with a plus-27 rating last season.
Financial terms of the deals were not released.
