Kiprusoff out, Flames sign Taylor

Goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, the Calgary Flames announced Wednesday.

Kiprusoff left Calgary's game Tuesday night after making 19 saves on 20 shots in a 4-1 victory against the Detroit Red Wings. Backup goaltender Leland Irving replaced Kiprusoff for the third period and stopped all six shots he faced.

The Flames signed Abbotsford Heat goaltender Danny Taylor to a one-year, two-way contract and he will fill Kiprusoff's spot. The 26-year-old is 13-9-1 and second in the American Hockey League in goals-against average (1.77) and save percentage (.930). The leader in both categories is Abbotsford's Barry Brust, who is 9-6-2 with a 1.69 GAA and .940 save percentage.

Quote of the Day

I think Loui Eriksson is a player that can be even better than he was last year. I think we started seeing that at the end of the year, and he could be a replacement for Jarome as a possibility.
