CALGARY - Jarome Iginla received an extended standing ovation before the opening faceoff of his first game back in Calgary since his trade.

The Calgary Flames honoured 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 off-season.

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