Jarome Iginla RW COL 2 Months

Iginla had a goal and an assist in Saturday's win over the Hurricanes.

The second line of Iginla, Nathan MacKinnon, and Gabriel Landeskog was flying Saturday, combining for seven points in the victory. Iginla has produced a lowly 12 points (three goals) in 21 games this season, putting him on pace to not even reach the 50-point mark. What's most disappointing is Iginla is also on pace to post the lowest goal total of his 18-season NHL career. While he might have struggled this season, his excellent play Saturday could be sign of things to come. He may be 37-years-old, but with two budding youngsters on his line, Iginla is getting the opportunity to pile up some points. He's due to start producing more.

Iginla believes his struggles this season are due because of his mental game, not physical, the reports.

The 37-year-old winger said "Sometimes, I get watching the play and thinking too much, and then I stop moving, I need to get moving and doing a little less thinking. You always want to be thinking, but I need to do more moving, be physical, be intense, be good along the wall and in front of the net." Iginla plays on a line with Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog, so he should have plenty of chances to end his season slump.

Iginla has failed to score a goal in eight straight games for the Avs, according to the Denver Post .

Iginla has only scored two goals this season, far from what the Avs expected when they signed him last off-season. It is possible that the 37-year-old is finally having his age catch up to him, but he should start producing soon. He is a buy-low candidate right now, and may be worth the low-risk gamble.

Iginla netted two goals and added an assist in Friday's win over the Canucks.

Iginla also finished the night with five shots on goal and a plus-3 rating in 19:43 of ice time. Skating on the second line with Matt Duchene, Iginla has recorded seven points (two goals) in his past five games, to go with a plus-3 rating. He appears to have hit his stride with the Avalanche, and fantasy owners should take advantage.

Iginla picked up his first two assists in a Colorado sweater Tuesday in a loss to Toronto. He also picked up four PIM and went plus-1.

He helped out on both the Avs' goals, but it wasn't enough. While it's nice to see Iginla get on the scoresheet, it'd be nicer still to see him more active in the shots department -- he's put only three pucks on net in four games, which is very uncharacteristic for a guy who took 209 shots last year.

Iginla (ankle) will play in Saturday's preseason finale against the Kings, the Denver Post's Adrian Dater reports.

Iginla tweaked his ankle earlier in the week and missed Thursday's game, but he's good to go now and should be fine for Colorado's Oct. 9 opener against Minnesota.

Iginla is nursing a slight ankle injury and won't play in Thursday's preseason game against the Kings, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.

The Avs are likely just holding Iginla out as a precaution, so as not to worsen the ankle injury any further in advance of the regular season. The newly-signed forward is expected to serve as the Avs' second-line right wing, where he'll play next to Matt Duchene and Ryan O'Reilly.

Avs coach Patrick Roy said he's tentatively planning to use Iginla as the second-line right wing this season, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.

Roy revealed his projected top-six forwards at Thursday's training camp session, slotting Iginla next to Ryan O'Reilly and Matt Duchene. That trio would be good enough to qualify as the top line for most teams, but the fact that they'll likely match up against lesser competition should only further aid their productivity. Iginla may be transitioning to a new squad after signing a three-year deal with the Avs in the summer, but expect him to make a run at another 30-goal season to go along with a magnificent plus/minus rating.

Jarome Iginla is hoping that there proves to be some parallels between his and Ray Bourque's career.

Bourque had a tremendous career with Boston, but it wasn't until he joined the Avalanche at the tail end of his career that he finally managed to win the Stanley Cup. Iginla was similarly on course to make it into the Hall of Fame during his days with the Calgary Flames, but he still hasn't won the Stanley Cup. He's optimistic about his chances of winning it all with the Avalanche.

Jarome Iginla signed with Colorado in part because he liked the idea of playing for executive vice president Joe Sakic.

Iginla and Sakic played together on Team Canada on multiple occasions. "I have a lot of respect for Joe. He's a winner," Iginla said. "So it definitely had a lot to do (with my decision). It's (also) the team, a great young team, playing against them, watching them, seeing the players they have, the goaltending they have, seeing the direction they're going, my buddy Alex Tanguay. ... I talked to him and Landeskog a few days ago, and (coach) Patrick Roy, so all that went into it." Iginla had 30 goals and 61 points in 78 contests with Boston in 2013-14.
