Playing career[edit]

Undrafted, and after five seasons playing for Canada's Ridley College prep school, Iggulden came to Cornell University in 2001, where he enrolled in Cornell's school of hotel executive administration management studies. Iggulden, Mike's last name, is British.[1] He played four seasons for the Big Red before turning professional, signing with the AHL's Rochester Americans at the end of the 2004–05 season.

The San Jose Sharks invited Iggulden to their training camp in September 2005 and, after he became one of the most consistent performers for their AHL farm team at the time, the Cleveland Barons, signed him to a two-year contract on January 16, 2006.[2] Iggulden made his NHL debut in the 2007–08 season with the Sharks on February 18, 2008, in what would be his only game with the Sharks.

On July 3, 2008, Iggulden was signed as a free agent by the New York Islanders to a one-year deal.[3] Iggulden, on his Islanders debut, scored his first 2 NHL points on assists to Sean Bergenheim, in a 7-3 victory, against the New Jersey Devils on March 7, 2009.[4] On March 12, Iggulden scored his first NHL goal against the Montreal Canadiens, tying the game at 1 to 1.

On July 10, 2009, Iggulden signed with Dinamo Riga of the Kontinental Hockey League.[5]

On July 16, 2010, Iggulden signed a one-year contract with the SCL Tigers of the Swiss NLA.[6]

On June 12, 2011, Iggulden signed a one-year contract with the Växjö Lakers Hockey of the Swedish Elitserien (SEL).[7] After scoring 34 points in 41 games for the Lakers, Iggulden chose to remain in the SEL, moving to fellow club Rögle BK on June 20, 2012.[8]
