Jarome Iginla

Whenever Jarome Iginla puts on a Team Canada jersey, a gold medal is soon to follow. Although Iginla has only represented Canada in four major international tournaments, he has brought back a gold medal every time.

Heading into the 2002 Olympics Iginla was having the best season of his career and was leading all NHL players in points. His hot streak was evident when he added four points in six games for Team Canada. While playing on a dynamic line with Joe Sakic and Simone Gagne, Iginla scored two goals and added an assist to help Canada defeat the U.S.A. 5-2 in the gold medal game. Canada looked to stay atop the hockey world at the 2004 World Cup of Hockey, and led by the dream line of Iginla with Joe Sakic and Mario Lemieux, Canada went undefeated to capture their first World Cup of Hockey.

Iginla had previously represented Canada in the 1995 World Junior Championship where Canada won the gold medal scoring five goals and seven assists to tie for the tournament lead in points. The next closest Canadian point getter on that team had six points. Iginla was named to the tournament all-star team on right wing and best forward of the tournament. Iginla put on a Canadian jersey again for the 1997 World Championship adding two goals and three assists to Canada's gold medal team.

Iginla's NHL honors are piling up quickly. He was named to the NHL All-Rookie team in 1997 after scoring 21 goals in his rookie season with the Calgary Flames. Iginla had a season to remember in 2001-02 scoring 52 goals and 44 assists for 96 points. For his strong season Iginla was awarded the Art Ross Trophy for most points, Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy for most goals, and Lester B. Pearson Trophy as Most Valuable Players as voted on by the members of the NHLPA. In 2004 Iginla would again show his deft scoring touch, named the co-winner of the "Rocket" Richard Trophy with Rick Nash and Ilya Kovalchuk after a 41 goal campaign.
