Iginla's last year in the NHL?

Veteran star right wing Jarome Iginla is prepared for what could be his final playoff push in the NHL with the Los Angeles Kings.

Iginla, 39, is in the final year of his contract and can become an unrestricted free agent July 1.

In an interview on TSN immediately following his trade from the Colorado Avalanche to the Kings, Iginla admitted he isn't sure what's going to happen after this season.

"I honestly don't know what the future holds after (the playoffs)," Iginla said.

"I really appreciate Joe Sakic giving me the chance and the L.A. Kings for giving me a chance (for potentially one last Stanley Cup run)."

Iginla, who has played in the playoffs seven times in his career, made the Stanley Cup Final in 2003-04 when the Flames lost to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Kings currently sit one point behind the St. Louis Blues for the final wildcard spot in the Western Conference.

"I've talked with my wife and my family. The year hasn't been as smoothly and it's not as fun... it's still fun, you're in the NHL, it's still a great job and a great living and everything like that, but when you're not winning it does take its toll on everybody," Iginla said. "It's been a little harder. Hopefully (I) get rejunivated here.

"As far as next year, I'm not sure. It's probably 50/50."
