The Skinny On Iggy

from the Calgary Sun,
Iginla is as trim as he has been in ages. "It's been a while, probably three or four years," Iginla said just before a rain-soaked 9 a.m. shotgun tee-off yesterday for the annual Flames Charity Golf Classic at Country Hills. "Over the years, I probably put on a couple of pounds. You work out just trying to get stronger and stronger. This year the focus was a little bit different, not so much worried about strength and able to take a few pounds off. "Not pounds of fat," he added with a laugh. Iginla credits his metamorphosis to a new off-season focus on speed and agility in order to adapt to the new NHL rules which debuted last year. The 29-year-old right winger decided late last season to alter his workouts -- including the addition of once-a-week yoga sessions -- after a relatively disappointing 35-goal campaign.
