News: Iginla (hip) did not participate in practice Monday, but was able to skate on his own earlier in the day, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Impact: Iginla suffered a hip injury last week, but it appears as though he is nearing a return. With Colorado's regular season beginning Oct. 8, the club may play it cautiously with the 38-year-old, but he appears to be on track to return before the end of the preseason.

News: Iginla sustained an injury to his hip and is considered day-to-day, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
Impact: It's not clear at this point how or when Iginla suffered the injury, but he'll have plenty of time to shake off the ailment before the regular season starts for Colorado on Oct. 8. Iginla, one of the premier scorers in the NHL, has only missed four games in the past two seasons.
