Calgary Flames recall centre Ben Street from American Hockey League

CALGARY - The Calgary Flames recalled centre Ben Street on Friday from the American Hockey League.

Street leads the Abbotsford Heat this season with 12 goals and 19 assists in 44 games. He signed with Calgary last summer as a free agent.

The Flames, meanwhile, have placed centre Mikael Backlund (MCL sprain) and goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff (MCL sprain) on injured reserve.

Kiprusoff was added to the IR retroactively and is considered day-to-day, while Backlund is expected to miss four to six weeks.

Flames also have activated defenceman Anton Babchuk while centre Michael Cammalleri remains day-to-day (hip flexor) and rookie Sven Baertschi remains week-to-week (hip flexor).

Calgary's next game is Saturday night in Vancouver against the Canucks.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
