Miikka Kiprusoff was welcomed back to Scotiabank Saddledome on Sunday by adoring Calgary Flames fans.

The Flames showed Kiprusoff some love with a lengthy highlight package featuring some of his more ridiculously athletic saves.

Fans gave him a standing ovation after the video during the first period of their game against the Vancouver Canucks.

Kiprusoff retired after the 2012-13 season.
