Mike Cammalleri scored twice in the second period and Calgary held off the Colorado Avalanche 4-3 on Wednesday night before trading captain Jarome Iginla to the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Flames sent Iginla to the Eastern Conference-leading Penguins in exchange for college prospects Kenneth Agostino and Ben Hanowski and a first-round pick this year.
Iginla was announced as a healthy scratch two hours before the start of the game. He sat out for the first time since April 8, 2007, in Colorado, ending his consecutive games streak at 441.
The 35-year-old Iginla is in the final year of his contract and will be an unrestricted free agent July 1. He has nine goals and 13 assists in 31 games this season. In 1,219 career regular-season games in 16 seasons, all with Calgary, Iginla has 525 goals and 570 assists. He has 28 goals and 21 assists in 54 career playoff games and has played for Canada in three Olympics.
Agostino plays for Yale, and Hanowski at St. Cloud State. Both are forwards.
