Kiprusoff was offered a roster spot at both the 2002 and 2006 Olympics, but will be competing in his first Olympics in 2010. In his most recent international competition, he backstopped the Finns to the Final of the 2004 World Cup of Hockey, posting a 4-1-1 record with a 1.48 goals-against average and .940 save percentage in six appearances.
He made his international debut at the 1995 World Junior Championships and was a member of the silver medal-winning Finnish side at the 1999 and 2001 World Championships.
