Iginla suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee on Jan 4. At the time, he said he would be out at least a week. Iginla said Thursday he hoped to start skating again after the all-star game next Wednesday in Dallas.
"I'm hoping right after, but that would be optimistic," he said. "The timeline is a month, but after the all-star break is three weeks so that's what I'm hoping for."
The Flames host Anaheim on Friday and are in Edmonton on Saturday.
