CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Jarome Iginla received an extended standing ovation before the opening faceoff of his first game back in Calgary since his trade last season.

The Calgary Flames honored their former captain with a video montage, but Scotiabank Saddledome was on its feet before the tribute.

Iginla was a Flame for 16 seasons and team captain for nine before he agreed to be dealt to the Pittsburgh Penguins in March.

He signed with the Boston Bruins as a free agent in the offseason.

Iginla lifted his stick in acknowledgment several times and broke into a wide smile when he heard the familiar chants of "Iggy, Iggy."
