Prior to Saturday night’s game, the Calgary Flames honoured their greatest player. Unfortunately, they couldn’t keep the party going. The Flames dropped a close 4-2 decision to the Minnesota Wild before a jam-packed Scotiabank Saddledome crowd.
Jarome Iginla, a man who needs no introduction, sat down tonight with a rare intermission edition of After Hours (Inter Hours?) to talk about his big career moments, spanning from his early tryouts to his Olympic appearances. Plus, a bonus mini-edition with Mike Vernon during the second intermission.
The Calgary Flames have officially retired Jarome Iginla’s jersey number. In a ceremony prior to Saturday’s game, the Flames raised a #12 banner to the Scotiabank Saddledome rafters.
On Saturday night in Calgary, one of the greatest players in National Hockey League history will be honoured. And then there’s a game, too.
Friends, chances to see the Calgary Flames live and in-person with your friends can be few and far between for a lot of reasons. But we’ve stumbled upon an offer from the Flames that might be up your alley.
Respectfully, but it has always been Jarome Iginla.
