UPDATE: According to the Calgary Herald, "all indications are the (Calgary) Flames expect (Jarome) Iginla to be in the lineup for Sunday's season-opener against the San Jose Sharks at the Saddledome ..." The veteran forward could make his return to practice as early as Wednesday.
"The Captain is doing very well. You know what? He's doing so well that he is begging me to let him on the ice," said Flames head coach Bob Hartley.
"Obviously, he is the best judge. The medical staff are very comfortable with Jarome being on the ice, so (Wednesday) morning, he's going to come in, we're going to test him in the gym, and if everything feels good, he is going to be on the ice."
