Source: Iginla set to be traded
TheFourthPeriod.com

It appears as if Jarome Iginla's days with the Calgary Flames are coming to an official end.

The Flames have been in deep trade discussions with the Boston Bruins involving Iginla, who has also attracted the interest of the Los Angeles Kings, Chicago Blackhawks and Pittsburgh Penguins.

In a surprising turn of events, the Flames announce prior to tonight's game against the Colorado Avalanche that Iginla will be a healthy scratch from the line-up.

The Bruins, meanwhile, picked up their efforts to acquire Iginla yesterday, a source close to the situation told TFP, and those talks continued throughout the day today. As of 7:30pm ET, the two sides were believed to be finalizing details on a deal.

Bruins prospects Matt Bartkowski and Alexander Khokhlachev are healthy scratches for tonight's AHL game, while Jordan Caron and Torey Krug are playing for the Bruins' in tonight's game against Montreal.

Earlier today, Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli told a local radio station that he was not interest in trading 19-year-old goalie Malcolm Subban.

The Kings had also been seriously pursuing Iginla, as Los Angeles head coach Darryl Sutter coached him for several years, but the price tag seems to be too high for their liking.

Chicago and Pittsburgh have also been in the mix, as those are the only other two teams Iginla will accept a trade to, but it's believed they're not currently deep in discussions for Iginla.

UPDATE: 10:40pm ET

There was a possibility that the Bruins could announce the acquisition of Iginla tonight, following their 6-5 shootout loss to the Canadiens, but a source close to the organization told TFP no announcement is scheduled for tonight.

The Bruins and Flames will continue their talks this evening and those conversations will spill into Thursday morning, where a deal could then be finalized.
