PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) — Jarome Iginla had to wait an extra day or two for his immigration issues to be cleared up, but won’t have to wait long to make his Penguins debut.
A little more than 12 hours since arriving in Pittsburgh, Iginla is in the line-up this afternoon against the NY Islanders.
Iginla’s flight out of Calgary was delayed, and by the time he reached Chicago he had missed his connection to Pittsburgh.
So, the Penguins arranged for a plane of his own and he settled into his hotel next top CONSOL Energy Center where he was able to roll out of bed into the Pens locker room.
