Jonas Hiller G CGY 3 Months

GM Bob Murray thanked goaltender Jonas Hiller for his work in the cage for the Anaheim Ducks.

The two sides are parting ways as the Ducks will go with John Gibson and Frederik Andersen in goal next season. "He gave us a great five years," Murray said of Hiller. "Jonas did so much for us, but we have some pretty good kids there so the writing was kind of on the wall." Hiller will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1 and should find another job in the NHL next season although he may be a backup.

Jonas Hiller will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

The move was expected for quite a while, but Anaheim GM Bob Murray has confirmed that Hiller won't be offered a contract. The Ducks have liked what they've seen from young netminders Frederik Andersen and John Gibson, so Hiller was seen as expendable. Hiller posted a 29-13-7 record with a .911 save percentage, a 2.48 GAA and five shutouts in 2013-14.

Jonas Hiller was the first goaltender off the ice Saturday, but it's still uncertain if he'll start in Game 4.

He left the ice slightly before Frederik Andersen on Thursday, but he didn't get the nod. Coach Bruce Boudreau appears to be open to giving John Gibson a chance to start in his first NHL playoff game. We probably won't know who plays until the pregame warmup.

Jonas Hiller was credited with the win after coming off the bench in the third period of Thursday's 3-2 victory.

Hiller turned aside seven of eights shots in 10 minutes. He got into the game because Frederik Andersen sustained what's believed to be a knee injury. If Andersen is healthy enough to play in Game 4, then there's a good chance Hiller will find himself back on the bench.

Jonas Hiller is projected to get the nod for Anaheim again in Game 3.

He was the first goaltender off at the morning skate. Don't be surprised too see Frederik Andersen if Hiller falters. He beat the Kings three times during the regular season and two of those wins came in Los Angeles.

Jonas Hiller allowed two goals on 16 shots in Anaheim's 3-1 loss to Los Angeles Monday evening.

It was a difficult game for Hiller because he faced only 16 shots and he couldn't do much for the goals that the Kings scored. Hiller now has a 1.75 goals-against average and .923 save percentage in four playoff games. He will probably start in Game 3 on Thursday night also.

As expected, Jonas Hiller will be in goal for Anaheim on Tuesday night against Los Angeles.

He stopped 33 of 36 shots hurled his way by the Kings in Game 1 on Saturday night, but the Ducks lost 3-2 in overtime.

Jonas Hiller played very well Saturday night in the Ducks' 3-2 overtime loss to the Kings and certainly has earned himself another start.

He will likely be Anaheim's starter Monday night in Game 2. "I think he played really good tonight," Ducks' coach Bruce Boudreau said. "I don't know where you could fault him on anything. You're looking at a 3-2 overtime loss where both teams played equally."

Jonas Hiller, starting his first game of the playoffs for Anaheim, stopped 36 shots in regulation and overtime before the Ducks fell 3-2 to the visiting Los Angeles Kings in the teams' first game of their second-round playoff series.

Hiller was outstanding but couldn't stop Marian Gaborik from tying the game with only seven seconds remaining in regulation. The Kings were playing with an extra attacker at the time. Gaborik also scored the game winner at 12:07 of overtime. Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau elected to start Hiller after using Frederik Andersen as his starter in all six games of the Ducks' first playoff series, against the Dallas Stars. Hiller's GAA in the post-season is 1.59. His save percentage is .939.

Jonas Hiller may get the nod for Anaheim in Game 1 Saturday night.

Coach Bruce Boudreau won't say who is starting against Los Angeles when the second round begins for both teams, but it could be Hiller after he relieved Frederik Andersen in Game 6 versus Dallas. Boudreau said that Hiller hasn't gone on ice for any of their 5 p.m. starts and he didn't take part in Saturday's optional skate in the morning, while Andersen did.
