The Calgary Flames made two announcements Sunday regarding their goaltending situation.

With Miikka Kiprusoff and his wife expecting their second child – the veteran netminder will not travel to Dallas – the Flames recalled Danny Taylor from the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League.

Leland Irving also had what the club called in a statement “minor elective surgery” that was successful and he is expected to return to the Heat’s lineup in two weeks.

Taylor collected his first NHL win on March 3 against the Vancouver Canucks, stopping 29 of the 31 shots he faced.

Kiprusoff had won three of his five starts since returning to the Flames earlier this month after missing 13 games with a grade 2 MCL sprain.

The Flames head out on the road for three games, beginning Monday against the Dallas Stars.

    Interesting photo….Taylor and Jonathan Quick were teammates back in 2007-08 & 2008-09 at Reading (ECHL) and Manchester (AHL).
