How Are You Celebrating Jarome Iginla Day?

from the St. Albert Gazette,

The City of St. Albert rolls out the red carpet today to honour hometown hero Jarome Iginla….

Iginla, 33, led all scorers at the Olympics with five goals in seven games. His seventh point of the tournament was the memorable assist on Sidney Crosby’s golden goal as Canada beat the United States in the final 3-2 in overtime. The gold medal was Iginla’s second in three Olympic appearances.

The Calgary Flames’ captain and all-star right-winger has enjoyed a hall of fame career as the franchise leader in games played (1,024), goals (441) and points (920) in 13 NHL seasons.

Some of his major accomplishments are:

• Rocket Richard Trophy as the NHL’s leading goal scorer in 2002 (52) and 2004 (shared with Rick Nash and Ilya Kovalchuk at 41 apiece).
