The Flames, who traded goalie Henrik Karlsson to the Chicago Blackhawks in January, have reportedly been shopping around for a legitimate backup netminder and might have to pick up the pace with Kipper's injury.
According to the Calgary Sun, the Flames could reach out to the Senators about young goaltender Ben Bishop, who has struggled to find his spot behind Craig Anderson and Robin Lehner in Ottawa.
Although the Flames still have room for additional contracts, the Sens might demand too much in return for Bishop, reportedly seeking to regain the pick they gave up for the 26-year-old last year.
The Flames sit in 29th place in the League with just six points, and could be pushed to find a quick solution in between the pipes if Kiprusoff's injury leaves him on the sidelines for several weeks.
In seven games this season, Kiprusoff has registered a .870 save percentage and 3.24 goals-against-average.
