Jarome Iginla: Appears Unlikely To Play Saturday

RotoWire.com Staff

Update: Iginla is unlikely to play Saturday against the Islanders, "for now," Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Recommendation: Iginla appeared set to arrive in Pittsburgh on Friday night after resolving his work visa issue, but he's reportedly been held up by travel, and the team is now expecting him Saturday. With Saturday's game getting underway at noon central time, it's unlikely the 35-year-old goes against the Isles. However, Rossi's choice of words indicate there's some wiggle room, in the off chance Iginla persuades the Pens into putting him in the lineup.
