Iginla to play on Saturday vs. Penguins

The Flames captain is healthy and ready to play in the season opener

Quote:
Calgary Flames captain Jarome Iginla skated with the team on Tuesday for the first time since suffering back spasms during the opening practice in training camp and confirmed he would be able to play on Saturday in the home opener against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Quote:
Iginla has been skating solo over the past few days to make sure he was 100 per cent ready to rejoin the ranks. That time on the ice gave him confidence his back was fully back to normal and gave the coaching and medical staff assurance he could be fully cleared before his first full practice with the team.
Quote:
By all accounts, the 34 year-old didn't look like he had missed a beat during the hour-long practice. He cited rink rust for some minor issues he felt came up - not picking up pucks in his feet as quickly as he would liked being an example - but overall, his time away from the ice didn't appear to hamper the winger.
Quote:
If Iginla had suffered the malady during the regular season, he did admit his recovery period would have been shorter. However, since it was not integral to have him skating and playing over the course of training camp, he and the team took every precaution to make sure he was in prime condition once he returned.

Great news.
