Jarome Iginla traded to the Penguins; re-united with Sidney Crosby

Mar 28, 2013, 1:44 AM EDT

Jarome Iginla was traded Wednesday night.

The end of an era in Calgary did take place. But Iginla was not traded to the Boston Bruins, as was initially reported and supposedly confirmed.

Calgary Flames general manager Jay Feaster dropped hockey’s equivalent to a bombshell, when he announced during a press conference that Iginla was actually traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins, where he will be re-united with his 2010 Olympic teammate Sidney Crosby.

You may remember that Iginla set up Crosby for the gold medal winning goal for Team Canada in the 2010 Olympics.

Penguins general manager Ray Shero has certainly been busy these past few days building his team that is now the clear favorite to take the Eastern Conference.

Not only do the Penguins possess Crosby, the league leader in points with 54 in 34 games, but they picked up veteran forward Brenden Morrow from the Dallas Stars and defenseman Douglas Murray from the San Jose Sharks.

The Penguins also lead the East with a 26-8-0 record and 52 points, which is five ahead of the Montreal Canadiens.

Iginla will speak to the media in Calgary tomorrow morning.
