Six-time All-Star Jarome Iginla will announce his retirement July 30 at the Saddledome, the Calgary Flames said on Wednesday.
"In a sense, I grew up there,'' Iginla said, according to the Flames. "I started playing for the Flames at 19 but even in minor hockey I remember traveling to Calgary for tournaments, from St. Albert, and I imagined playing in the Saddledome.
"It's been a fun adventure, for my family and I. Some great cities, great people. To be back in Alberta, though, will feel like home."
