Photo by Mike Ridewood/Getty ImagesCalgary Flames captain, Jarome Iginla, has become the 42nd player in NHL history to score 500 goals. At 8:33 of the third period, Iginla shot the puck towards the Minnesota Wild net and it bounced off Mikko Koivu’s skate and into the net past Nicklas Backstrom. The Saddledome crowd erupted, as did Flames fans watching at home across the country. Iginla’s 500th goal also gives him the distinction of being only the 15th player to score 500 NHL goals with the same team. Iggy has been a fixture in Calgary for many years and his goal immediately sent both “Iggy” and “Jarome Iginla” onto the Twitter trending topics list. Also of note: of Iggy’s 500 goals, 80 of them are game-winning goals. To put it in perspective, Wayne Gretzky had 91 game winners in his career. The only other active 500+ goal players in the NHL at the moment are Jaromir Jagr and Teemu Selanne. Here is the video of the goal: If you’re browsing on mobile, you won’t be able to...
