VERNON, BC - When we met up with Jarome Iginla this morning for the second day of our #BearTracks trip with him in British Columbia, the forward was hitting the ice for a skating session.
Yesterday, we saw his competitive nature come out when racing his brother, Stephen, in sprints as part of his offseason routine, amidst the beautiful backdrop of the Okanagan Valley.
This morning, the competitor was just as hard on himself - if not harder - as he worked on the intricate details of the game, with only a goalie and his skating coach, Tomas Pacina, on the ice.
"During the summer, I like to get on the ice definitely starting in July and make sure the rust doesn’t build up, and also work on things to improve," said Iginla.
As he laced up his skates and made his way onto the ice, without pads and with his set of four sticks, the forward maneuvered his way through a series of stickhandling and skating drills.
