(Getty Images) Despite reports suggesting that he’d be a member of the Boston Bruins, the Calgary Flames traded Jarome Iginla to the Pittsburgh Penguins early Thursday morning.

Well it looks like the Boston Bruins lost out again.

Early Thursday morning, Calgary Flames GM Jay Feaster announced that Jarome Iginla has been dealt to the Pittsburgh Penguins. In return, Calgary receives prospects Ben Hanowski, Kenny Agostino and a 2013 first round pick.

This coming after numerous reports suggested that Iginla would be coming to Boston – including from TSN’s Bob McKenzie and Aaron Ward.

Here’s the confirmation via a tweet on the official Penguins’ Twitter account

 

With the addition of fellow veteran Brenden Morrow from the Dallas Stars and depth defenseman Douglas Murray from the San Jose Sharks, the red-hot Pens have increased their odds of capturing their second Stanley Cup in five years.

Peter Chiarelli and company will need to look elsewhere now. Potential names that have been floated around include Jarimor Jagr and Ryan Whitney, just to name a couple.

In the meantime, the Bruins and the Pens for the third and final time of the 2013 season on April 19 at the TD Garden.
