Goalie Jonas Hiller has fully recovered from an appendicitis attack in July, according to Calgary Flames general manager Brad Treliving.
“I talked to him the other day and he’s back, 100 percent, skating, working out. He’s been back in his routine, fully functional and no issues.” – Treliving in an interview with the Calgary Herald.
Hiller suffered the attack while training in his native Switzerland this offseason.
After seven seasons with the Anaheim Ducks, Hiller signed a two-year, $4.5 million deal with the Flames this summer. Hiller is expected to compete with Karri Ramo for starting duties in between the pipes.
During his time in Anaheim, Hiller put together solid numbers. He finished his Ducks’ career with a 162-110-32 record, a 2.51 goals against average and a .916 save percentage.
Hiller began the 2013-2014 season as the No. 1 goaltender for the Ducks, but he struggled down the home stretch and eventually lost his job to young netminders Frederik Andersen and John Gibson. Hiller finished his last season in Anaheim 29-13-7 with a 2.48 goals against average and a .911 save percentage.
