This comes as absolutely no surprise to anyone, but despite rising significantly over the draft process, the majority of mock drafts (all complete following the 2024 NHL Draft Lottery) still have the Flames taking the son of the franchise's greatest ever player. Just hearing that may make some believe it's a nepotistic pick, but that couldn't be further from the truth, as Iginla is indeed the perfect pick for the future of the Calgary Flames.

This past year Iginla took a major step forward, netting an impressive 47 goals, and without turning 18-years of age yet, he's got a very bright future ahead. On top of that, he has the versatility to play on the wing, but projects as a center moving forward, and if he continues growing, he could be the big bodied 1C the Flames have been searching for.
