Miikka Kiprusoff, made it official Monday: He is done with the NHL, after nine seasons with the Flames that put him alongside Mike Vernon as one of the franchise’s greatest goaltenders. Kiprusoff, 36, had one year remaining on a front-loaded six-year, $35-million (U.S.) contract he signed before the start of the 2008-09 season. According to the Flames, they knew about his plans all along, but chose not to make them public in case he changed his mind.
Kiprusoff had, by far and away, his worst season with Calgary in 2013 – 8-14-2, 3.44 goals-against average, .882 save percentage. Statistically, Kiprusoff finished as the Flames all-time leader in wins (305), games played (576) and shutouts (41)
