Iginla and his teammates were collectively held off the scoresheet, but the veteran winger picked up 17 PIM in Tuesday's loss to Washington.
His second-period fight and misconduct penalty limited him to only 12:06 of ice time. Perhaps that was just as well, though, as the Avs never stood a chance in this game, coming as it did on the heels of a hard-fought victory in Pittsburgh the night before. Iggy's already almost halfway to last year's PIM total, but most fantasy owners are probably more interested in the 39-year-old's point production (one goal in three games so far). That's declined in consecutive seasons now, and at his advanced age, it's hard to expect Iginla to bounce back and post star-type numbers. He's not Jaromir Jagr, after all.
Iginla is projected to open the new season in the top six for Colorado once again, and he's notched assists in his first two preseason contests.
The 39-year-old winger is coming off a down year, as his 47 points in 82 games fall well short of the standard he's set throughout his career. Iginla's clearly feeling his age -- he doesn't deliver hits or shots as frequently as he used to -- but he should still be good for another 20-goal campaign.
Jarome Iginla 's goal against the Ducks on Saturday was his 611th of this career, moving ahead of Bobby Hull's 610 goals.
Iggy's now just 14 goals behind all-time Avs' great Joe Sakic for 15th all-time in league history. He leads his draft class (1995) in every scoring category, holding a 215-goal lead and 328-point lead over the second-place scorer (Shane Doan in both categories).
Jarome Iginla scored a goal on five shots and added a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Predators.
After not scoring in 12 straight during March, the 38-year-old has found twine in two of the last three (one on the power play). The winger has 45 points on the year, which is respectable for the bottom-six role he possesses. However, owners will find it tough to swallow his career-worst minus-22 rating, one that's too forgone to improve with just two games remaining.
Jarome Iginla notched a power-play helper and four shots on goal in Saturday's 3-2 loss to Winnipeg.
Iginla is off to a nice start to March, recording one marker and three helpers in six outings. That puts the 38-year-old veteran at a respectable 41 points on the season, but unfortunately, he sports a minus-19 rating -- the worst of his career. There's still time to improve upon it, but Colorado's play as a team won't help his cause.
