Kiprusoff says he has retired
TheFourthPeriod.com

Veteran goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff has told the Finnish National Team that he has officially retired and won't be returning to the Calgary Flames.

According to Finnish media outlet Ilta-Sanomat, Finnish national coach Erkka Westerlund revealed Kiprusoff's official decision.

Kiprusoff, 36, has one-year left on a six-year, $35 million contract. His cap hit is $5.833 million, but his actual salary is just $1.5 million.

He posted an 8-14-2 record with the Flames this season, along with a 3.44 goals-against-average and a .882 save percentage.

Over his NHL career with the San Jose Sharks and Flames, Kiprusoff has played in 623 regular-season games and has posted a 319-213-64 record with a 2.49 goals-against-average, a .912 save percentage and 44 shutouts.

Kiprusoff was originally drafted by the Sharks in the fifth-round (116th overall) of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. He was traded to the Flames on Nov. 16, 2003 in exchange for a second-round draft pick.

Calgary is now left with the unproven Karri Ramo, who has a 11-21-10 record in 48 career NHL games, all with Tampa Bay. Ramo, however, has since excelled in the KHL.
