No one would have thought that future hall of famer Jarome Iginla would ever wear the Spoked B of the Boston Bruins after the trade fiasco where he chose to go to Pittsburgh. However, “Iggy” manned up and approached the Black & Gold as a free agent. All is forgiven when you perform on the ice and Iginla is doing just that on the top line with David Krejci and Milan Lucic. He still brings grit and shows a nose for the net even though he is on the back nine of his career.
So, everyone in Calgary knows everything there is to know about their former captain, but how much do Bruins fans know about Jarome Arthur-Leigh Adekunle Tig Junior Elvis Iginla?
So let’s step into the Black & Gold time machine and look back at Iggy’s hockey journey.
Welcome to Bruins Throwback Thursday!
