Iginla’s speech capped off a weekend of festivities honouring the 44-year-old winger. He received a commemorative Hockey Hall of Fame ring on Friday before participating in the ceremonial faceoff before a game between the Flames and the Toronto Maple Leafs later that evening.

On Sunday, Iginla participated in the Hockey Hall of Fame Legends Classic at Scotiabank Arena. He scored both in regulation time and in the shootout and also assisted on a vintage snipe by Mike Cammalleri in an 8-4 loss for Team Canada.
