Flames activate Kiprusoff from IR

Calgary, AB (Sports Network) - Calgary Flames goaltender Miikka Kiprusoff is expected to see his first game action in a month when the team hosts the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday.

The Flames activated Kiprusoff, who sustained a Grade 2 MCL sprain in a Feb. 5 matchup against Detroit, from injured reserve on Wednesday, with head coach Bob Hartley telling reporters the veteran netminder is on track to start against the Sharks.

Calgary also reassigned Danny Taylor, who had been serving as the backup goaltender to Joey MacDonald in Kiprusoff's absence, to Abbotsford of the American Hockey League.

Prior to the injury, Kiprusoff compiled a 2-3-2 record and a 3.24 goals- against average in seven starts.
