Legit tears today.
The ultimate hockey player – fight, hit, score goals, dish the puck, carry the team and inspire the city. As a kid growing up watching Iggy, he was the best role model of the athlete I wanted to be.#ThankYouIggy https://t.co/iEBOYqdUi3

Absolutely loved watching Iginla play hockey. Skill, grit, athleticism, toughness, leadership. He and Kipper willed that team within an inch of the Cup. So thankful he landed in Calgary. #ThankYouIggy pic.twitter.com/V6iqD6fCDO

my favourite player to ever play the game and an all around class act on and off the ice. Shame he couldn't get a cup but the hall of fame is waiting! Happy Retirement Iggy!!! @NHLFlames #ThankYouIggy

Amazing to watch and listen to Jarome Iginla today. So humble. So poised. So proud and so very inspiring. #ThankYouIggy for setting the best example on and off the ice.

I was there for his first goal in the 96' playoffs. I was there for the 2004 Flames Cup run when he carried the team on his back. I was there for his 500th goal. I witnessed many more goals/fights/assists in between. True legend. #ThankYouIggy

After the ceremony for the beautiful Team Canada gold medal victory at the #Vancouver2010 #WinterOlympics Jarome Iginla threw his bouquet and I caught it. What a player. What a guy. Best wishes for the next chapter! #ThankYouIggy pic.twitter.com/Md0YhXFkft
