Seriously, I know it’s not the game-day burgundy, white, and steel-blue yet… but that Avalanche crest suits him well. He skated a lot with Matt Duchene and Gabriel Landeskog throughout the drills, and seemed to keep up just fine!

After about 45 minutes of drills, the team broke into two groups and played mini 3-on-3 hockey in each end. Iginla ended up going on the opposite side of where I was sitting, so I didn’t get to watch him a whole lot unfortunately. Iggy was one of the first guys to call it a day, and leave the ice. He has to keep those old legs fresh, right?!
