CALGARY, ALBERTA (AP) - Jarome Iginla’s first skate of training camp lasted less than half an hour as the Calgary Flames captain left the ice because of back spasms.

He said Saturday that this was nothing new for him, but at 34 Iginla is more cautious about aches and pains.

Iginla, the Flames captain since the 2003-04 season, is the franchise player. So even a minor injury a few weeks before the regular season begins creates concern.
