Off The Post: Jarome Iginla – Call to the Hall – Jarome Iginla spoke with media during a special call with 2020 Hockey Hall of Fame inductees. Iginla spent most of his career with the Calgary Flames and amassed over 600 goals and 600 assists. The former Art Ross Trophy Winner and multi-time gold medalist joins the hallowed Hall this year alongside several other luminaries.
Iginla’s NHL career started untraditionally. Though he was picked by the Dallas Stars in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft, he never suited up for the team that picked him. Instead, he was traded to the Calgary Flames, alongside Corey Millen, for Joe Nieuwendyk just months after wearing a Stars jersey on Draft Day.
The move proved savvy by Calgary brass, as “Iggy” went on to have a stellar career with the Flames. He led the team in scoring virtually every season he wore the red jersey, captained a march to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2004, captured multiple individual honors and brought a Superstar presence to Cowtown.
Toward the end of his career, Iginla bounced around from team to team as he pursued the elusive Stanley Cup. Though he never held the big trophy, Iginla had incredible international success, capped by winning three gold medals at the Olympic Winter Games.
Through it all, Iginla has been highly regarded in the hockey hobby. Ever since his rookie card season in 1994-95, Iginla has been a must-have for any collector, with plenty of autographs, memorabilia cards and other collectibles available. In total, there are more than 5,000 unique Iginla cards that have been indexed.
Congratulations Jarome Iginla!
