In an announcement that shocked exactly 0 people, Jarome Iginla has been elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in the 2020 class. Iginla was selected in his very first year of eligibility and will be enshrined among hockey’s greatest players for all time.
Iginla finished his career with 1554 games played, 625 goals and 675 assists for a total of 1300 points. He also dressed for 81 playoff games which frankly should’ve been a lot higher if the Flames could’ve built around him but that’s another topic.
Iginla spent the majority of his career with the Flames of course, but also played for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Boston Bruins, Colorado Avalanche, and Los Angeles Kings. He will no doubt go down as the greatest Calgary Flame of all time and an icon in the game.
