If this season is his last, Jarome Iginla may want a chance to go out on top.

The Colorado Avalanche sit last in the Central Division, and as such the veteran winger will consider waiving his no-trade clause, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reports.

Iginla, in the final year of his contract with Colorado, had the same opportunity last year, but opted to stick with the Avalanche. He's familiar with the situation, though, as he left the Calgary Flames in 2013 for the Pittsburgh Penguins in search of a championship.

In 25 games this year, Iginla has only three goals and three assists, but with 614 goals and 1,279 points over his Hall of Fame career, plenty of contenders could benefit from his experience come trade deadline.
