Milestone: Iginla Joins 500 Goal Club

In News, PWH on May 28, 2011 at 12:02 pm

Portland Winterhawks winger Jarome Iginla has become just the 6th player ever to join the 500 goal club.

He now has 502 career goals, two more than Brett Hull, and sits at 5th all-time.

Iginla joined the Portland dynasty in 2007 as part of a landmark 7-player trade. He instantly became a part of one of the most potent lines in league history with Joe Thornton and Ilya Kovalchuk.

Iginla’s led the GWMHL in points three times and holds the all-time single season record with 171 in the 2008-2009 season – a campaign that also saw him score 81 goals. He’s one of the best pure goal scorers in the league, and if he wasn’t a lock for the Hall of Fame before, he sure is now.
