Unofficially, the post-Miikka Kiprusoff era has begun for the Calgary Flames.

The Flames, according to reports, have come to terms with netminder Karri Ramo. The team — which cannot comment on the development until July 5, the start of the free-agency period — has high expectations for the veteran.

Ramo’s rights had been acquired — with Michael Cammalleri in the Rene Bourque transaction — from the Montreal Canadiens on Jan. 12, 2012.

Over the past four seasons, the Finnish netminder has tended the nets of Omsk Avangard of the KHL, recording goals-against averages of 2.11, 1.97, 1.96, 2.00.
