Upcoming Milestones

From John Kreiser at NHL.com:

Here’s a look at some players who have a good chance to reach individual milestones during the 2011-12 season:

500 goals: Jarome Iginla, Calgary Flames

Calgary’s captain and all-time scoring leader passed the 1,000-point mark late last season. He starts the new season with 484 goals after finishing third in the NHL with 43 in 2010-11—his best season since getting 50 in 2007-08. He was the top scorer among active players until Jaromir Jagr (646) signed with Philadelphia after three seasons in Russia.

With 10 consecutive seasons of 30 or more goals, there would appear to be little doubt that Iginla will get the 16 he needs to become the 42nd player in NHL history to reach the 500-goal mark.  [...]
