Iginla Ready

from the Calgary Flames,
The team was revved and ready to begin training camp Monday, as the first day of fitness testing and medical examinations began for the veteran players at the Talisman Centre. Among those players was Flames captain Jarome Iginla, who was glad to have completed the intense fitness tests by the early afternoon and, along with others, anticipated the teams return to the ice the following day. "It was tough (fitness tests); it always is," Iginla told the media huddled around him. "It's sure good to be done, but it's nice to be back preparing for a season, that's for sure." According to Iginla, after having a year off, he decided to change his off-season routine slightly in order to better prepare himself for what the season would bring. In order to do this, the forward concentrated more on his speed and power, which would in turn help quicken him on and off the ice.
