Miikka Kiprusoff Calgary Flames Black Warrior Game Used Stick
Lot #710
This black Warrior goalie stick was game used by Miikka Kiprusoff. The San Jose Sharks selected Kiprusoff in the 5th round of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. After spending a handful of seasons in Europe, this Finnish native began his NHL career with San Jose in 2000-01. After a few seasons with the Sharks, Miikka joined the Calgary Flames via trade during the 2003-04 season. What a season it turned out to be for Kiprusoff and the Flames! Miikka won 24 of his 38 games, 4 by shutout and posted a 1.69 GAA during the regular season. In what was a heroic effort, he led the Flames all the way to game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals that year only to fall to the Tampa Bay Lightning. The playoffs saw Kiprusoff post 5 of his 15 wins by shutout to go along with a 1.85 GAA.

Following the NHL lockout, Kiprusoff came back where he left off and captured the Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s best goalie as well as the Jennings Trophy for fewest goals allowed in 2005-06. He also earned a 1st Team NHL All Star selection that same season thanks in part to his 42 wins and 10 shutouts. The 2006-07 season then saw Miikka earn his first NHL All Star game appearance. Miikka has been an iron man between the pipes for the Flames. He has played in 70+ games per season for each of the past 6 years. On the international scene Kiprusoff has represented Team Finland in the Olympics and the World Cup of Hockey.

This black Warrior goalie stick has the player name “Kiprusoff” stamped on the side. The stick is fully taped on the butt and blade. It is uncracked and in beautiful condition.
