A day after Jarome Iginla returned to his longtime home in Calgary, the Bruins enjoyed another reunion.
After beating the Flames on Tuesday, the B’s flew to Edmonton for their date with the Oilers. There to greet them at Rexall Place was Andrew Ference, who now serves as Edmonton’s captain after leaving the Bruins via free agency after last season.
Ference spent six-plus seasons in Boston before signing with his hometown team, and a number of his former teammates spent some time catching up with the defenseman Wednesday before having to line up across from him the following night.
Check out Milan Lucic, Dennis Seidenberg, Johnny Boychuk and Patrice Bergeron saying hello to their old friend in the photos below.

Andrew Ference didn’t literally circle the date on his calendar, but the Edmonton Oilers defenceman has been looking forward to this game for a while.
Ference is expected to be in the thick of things when the Oilers host the Boston Bruins Thursday at Rexall Place. Ference won a Stanley Cup and went to another final with the Bruins before signing as a free agent with the Oilers...
Jarome Iginla was the face of the Calgary Flames franchise for over a decade and is arguably the greatest player in team history.
When the future Hall of Famer returned to Calgary for the first time as a visiting player on Tuesday night, he received a lengthy standing ovation and an awesome video tribute in an emotional pre-game ceremony at the Saddledome.
The horn at the Scotiabank Saddledome had just sounded, signaling a Bruins win. In the immediate seconds that followed, the B’s hopped over the boards to go celebrate the win at their net. Almost simultaneously as he climbed over the boards, Bruins captain Zdeno Chara had one clear mission in mind. The Boston captain went straight to Jarome Iginla and made sure to wrap him with...
Andrew Ference knows Shawn Thornton personally.
A former member of the Boston Bruins and now captain of the Edmonton Oilers, Ference doesn’t condone Thornton’s actions against Pittsburgh Penguins defenceman Brooks Orpik on Saturday.
Ference does, however, feel Thornton’s remorse is genuine.
“It was 100% genuine, I know him,” Ference said. “I talked to some of the guys...
The Bruins will play against the Edmonton Oilers tonight and our old friend Andrew Ference. The Bruins parted ways with him so he went to his hometown, Edmonton. Now its time for him to prove he's still got it tonight against the B's.So far this season Andrew Ference has 2 goals and 2 assists with a -6 +/-. Krug on the other hand has 8 goals and 10 assists with a 5 +/-. So...
After spending 16 years with the Calgary Flames, Jarome Iginla will take the Scotiabank Saddledome ice as a visitor for the first time in his career.
Although Iginla was the face of the franchise in Calgary for over a decade and the Flames’ leader in games, goals and points, the winger could not be happier with where he is now — sporting the jersey with the spoked-B.
After playing 16 years in a Flames sweater and pretty much doing every thing but raise the Stanley Cup, Jarome Iginla returned to Calgary in an opposing team’s sweater for the first time ever last night. As expected, Flames fans welcomed back the longest tenured captain in franchise history with open arms (and then some).
The team put together a nice pre-game ceremony for Iggy’s...
A.B. Boston Bruins forward Jerome Iginla was honored by the Calgary Flames last night in his first game back since being traded to the Penguins last year. Iginla, who spent 16 years in Calgary, was greeted by cheers, chants of “Iggy”, a pre-game video tribute and a post-game ovation.
Oh the Edmonton Oilers. What a horrible, horrible hockey franchise you are. Despite having the first pick three years in a row, the Oilers are sitting in last place in the Western Conference. Why? Because they don't have defense and they don't have goaltending. Apparently Steve Tambellini believed that scoring wins everything and that is why Steve Tambellini is no longer...
Jarome Iginlas will play hist first game against his old team the Calgary Flames tonight. Iginla departed ways with Calgary last season during the trade deadline. We all remember that night, reports said Iginla was traded to Boston, but no he really chose Pittsburgh.But thats ancient history, I guess, and tonight the 20-8-2 Bruins will play the 11-14-4 Flames. The Bruins biggest...
The Boston Bruins seemed to be cruising toward a win before they had to hold on to beat the Edmonton Oilers.
Jarome Iginla scored a pair of goals, and the Eastern Conference-leading Bruins outlasted the West cellar-dwelling Oilers 4-2 on Thursday night.
Dennis Seidenberg and Brad Marchand also had goals for the Bruins (22-8-2), who have won four in a row and eight of 10.
If you caught the game late last night then you probably saw the classy gesture the Calgary Flames organization put together for their 2003-2013 captain. In case you didn't see it or want to watch it again scroll below.Here is the video tribute played before last night's game:The fun didn't stop there, after the Bruins won 2-1, Iggy was named the third star of the game...
After 16-plus seasons with the Flames, Jarome Iginla is enjoying his first trip back to Calgary.
The six-time All-Star, though, wants to make sure Boston leaves with two points in hand.
Iginla faces his former team for the first time as the Bruins go for a third consecutive win Tuesday night against the Flames.
Calgary's all-time leader in goals (525) and points (1,095), Iginla...
They cheered when he was the first one out for warmup.
They applauded when the Jumbotron had him in the Boston Bruins starting lineup.
And they started the first “Ig-gy, Ig-gy” chant as the red carpet was rolled out to centre ice.
But when Saddledome house announcer Beesley introduced Jarome Iginla as the Bruins participant in the ceremonial faceoff against new Flames captain...
