After suiting up for the Anaheim Ducks for seven seasons, Jonas Hiller has found a new home.
The Swiss goaltender signed a two-year, $9 million contract with the Calgary Flames earlier today during a crazy afternoon of free agency.
With the emergence of young Frederik Andersen and John Gibson, it was apparent that Hiller’s time as a Duck was winding down. Earlier in June, general manager Bob Murray told Hiller he wouldn’t be offering him a contract for the upcoming season.
Hiller seemed destined to be the long-term man in net after stellar first half of the 2013-2014 season. The trade that sent Viktor Fasth to Edmonton also seemed to give the notion that Hiller was here to stay. But his post-Olympic struggles led to his benching and only paved the way for Andersen and Gibson to take over in Anaheim.
He finished 29-13-7 with a 2.48 GAA and .991 SV% in his final year as a Duck.
Over his seven-year career in Anaheim, Hiller posted a record of 162-110-32 with a 2.51 GA and .916 SV%.
In Calgary, Hiller and incumbent netminder Karri Ramo will battle for the No. 1 spot in between the pipes.
