Former Flames Rhett Warrener fires up Iginla

Rhett Warrener officially recorded 26 assists during his stint with the Calgary Flames.

It would appear the retired-defenceman-turned-radio-personality unofficially recorded another.

One sleep after Warrener said on the Sportsnet FAN960 radio show that his former teammate Jarome Iginla wasn’t showing the competitive juices that made him one of the NHL’s best players for a decade, the Calgary Flames captain had plenty of fire.

Iginla had a pair of assists, dropped the gloves with Dallas Stars rookie Antoine Roussel for his first fight of the season and, most importantly, showed the fire fans have come to love during Wednesday’s 7-4 victory.

The performance begged the question: Did Warrener’s words light a fire under the Flames captain?
