Bruins Get Iginla This Time, Ink 1-Year-Deal

Bruins logoBOSTON (AP) — After the Boston Bruins failed to get Jarome Iginla at the trade deadline, they grabbed him in free agency.

The longtime Flames forward, who was traded to Pittsburgh in March, signed a one-year deal with the Bruins on Friday. The right wing will have a base salary of $1.8 million along with $4.2 million in incentives, which gives him a $6 million salary cap charge.

The 36-year-old entered this past season having scored at least 30 goals 11 straight times. He registered 14 goals and 33 points in 44 games between Calgary and Pittsburgh, and then had four goals and eight assists in 15 postseason games with the Penguins.

In 1,232 NHL regular-season games, Iginla had 530 goals and 576 assists. He is 32nd on the NHL’s career goal list and 57th with 1,106 points.
