Jerome Iginla, my favorite non-Red Wing, scored his 600th NHL goal last night.
Although Iginla’s 600th goal came as a member of the Colorado Avalanche, he will be forever known as the captain of the Calgary Flames.
Former Flames’ GM, Craig Button, had this to say about Iginla:
“He doesn’t carry himself with any attitude or arrogance. He’s confident in his abilities. He’s self-assured. He’s genuine. He’s a better person than he is a player, and we all know what kind of player he is.”
That’s saying something when you consider Iginla is only the 19th player in NHL history to score 600 goals.
Perhaps good guys win one in a while.
Good on you Jerome, Congratulations.
