The Calgary Flames have announced that they will retire Jarome Iginla's No. 12 on March 2 before they play the Minnesota Wild.

In his tenure with the Flames, Iginla played 1,219 games, scoring 1,095 points (525 goals, 570 assists) in 16 years with the team. Over his entire NHL career, Iginla played a total of 1,554 games that included 1,300 points (625 goals, 675 assists).

Some of his highlights in Calgary include a trip to the Stanley Cup Final in 2004 and winning two Maurice 'Rocket' Richard trophies, one Art Ross Trophy, and one Lester B. Pearson Award. He was named a First Team All-Star three times.

Iginla wore the captaincy in Calgary for 10 seasons from 2003-04 to 2012-13. With Team Canada, he won two Olympic gold medals, world junior and world championship gold, and the World Cup of Hockey.

He was dealt to the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2013 for a first-round pick and two prospects. He spent the following four seasons with the Boston Bruins, Colorado Avalanche and Los Angeles Kings before officially retiring on July 30, 2018.

The Dallas Stars drafted Iginla 11th overall in 1995 before dealing him to the Flames later that year with Corey Millen for the rights to Joe Nieuwendyk.
