Jarome Iginla's 18-year tenure with the Calgary Flames has come to an end. The team announced that it has dealt Iginla to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for college prospects Kenneth Agostino and Ben Hanowski as well as Pittsburgh's first-round draft pick. Iginla has scored nine goals and 13 assists in 31 games with the Flames this season. Holding team records for goals, points and games-played, Iginla's time with the Flames comes to an end in the final year of a five-year deal he signed prior to the 2008-09 season worth an average annual value of $7 million. The long-serving captain has scored 525 goals and 570 assists in 1219 career games with the Flames. Over Iginla's 15 seasons with the Flames he has won two Maurice “Rocket” Richard trophies as the league's leading goal scorer as well as an Art Ross Trophy, the Lester B. Pearson Award, the Mark Messier Leader of the Year Award and the King Clancy Memorial Trophy. He has been named to play in seven NHL All-Star Games, has been named to three NHL First All-Star Teams and one NHL Second All-Star Team on top of winning two Olympic Gold Medals.
