from Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun,
Iginla, the face of the franchise and the Flames’ all-time leading scorer, is in the final year of his contract and due to become an unrestricted free-agent after the coming season.
Considering his age — 35 — and where the team is in terms of Stanley Cup contention — long shot — the question of his plans is a biggie.
“I didn’t expect that question so early. Yeah, it’s right back at it,” Iginla said Monday after skating with a whack of teammates and fellow pros at WinSport.
“I’m really just excited to get playing again and have that opportunity to play in the NHL and compete here in Calgary.
“It would be my preference to stay here, for sure, and play on a good team, which I believe we will be, and to win here. It is home.
“That’s where my focus is, to get ready and have a great season as a team and play well for this team.”
