CALGARY - Kenny Agostino and Ben Hanowski arrived together — officially, anyway — in the headline-hogging trade that made Jarome Iginla the former face of the Calgary Flames.

They’ve been arriving at the Saddledome together — literally — for the past few days, thanks to Hanowski and defenceman Tyler Wotherspoon offering the new guy a ride to the rink from the hotel.

Hanowski, to refresh your memory, announced his arrival with a goal in his first NHL game last April.

Your move, Kenny.

“He didn’t (mention that), but now I know,” Agostino said with a smile after Thursday’s practice at the Saddledome. “That’s great for him. I’m totally not trying to compete with him for that. I just want to have a good first shift.”

And a good first game, too.
