For seven years, Miikka Kiprusoff was a constant in net for the Calgary Flames. Karri Ramo might be the next in line.
Calgary Flames goalie Miikka Kiprusoff announced his retirement on Monday after 12 NHL seasons.
Marian Hossa had a goal and an assist, and Chicago's Joel Quenneville became the 10th coach to earn 600 NHL victories as the Blackhawks beat the Calgary Flames 4-2 on Sunday night for their fifth straight win.
Miikka Kiprusoff crossed paths with Mike Vernon in San Jose at the outset of his career. Then he moved on to Calgary where he took over his team record for wins.
The Calgary Flames were experienced and expensive the past two seasons.
"I know Mike pretty well" said Kiprusoff, who was traded to the Flames by San Jose on Nov. 16, 2003, early in his third season with the Sharks.
Kiprusoff says he made the decision to retire at the end of last season, but thought about it over the summer before making an official announcement that he was "100 percent sure."
