On Tuesday, Hiller signed a three-year contract to play in Switzerland for EHC Biel, Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hiller, who would've been an unrestricted free agent this summer, just completed the second year of a $9 million deal with the Flames, which proved to be a real money burner since the netminder finished 2015-16 with an atrocious 3.51 GAA and .879 save percentage. He also had a losing record at 9-11-1. The awful year came as a surprise, since Hiller won 26 games thanks to a 2.36 GAA and .918 save mark in the previous campaign, his first go-around with the Flames after seven seasons with the Ducks. Still, at this juncture, the 34-year-old should be more comfortable returning to his native land to stop pucks. One would think the one-time NHL All-Star's career is over, but we'll see how he fares in the Swiss league before jumping to that conclusion.

Calgary general manager Brad Treliving has told Hiller the Flames will not bring him back next season, Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hiller had an awful season, with a 3.51 GAA and .879 save percentage. A team will likely sign him as a backup, but he certainly didn't make a case in 2015-16 for being an everyday starter.

Hiller was pulled after giving up three goals on five shots in just 6:51 of ice time in Wednesday's 8-3 loss to Anaheim.

EDGE Analysis

At least the beatdown wasn't all Hiller's fault, as the Ducks managed to shell Niklas Backstrom for five more tallies before the night was through. This was Anaheim's franchise-record 23rd straight home win against the Flames, so expectations shouldn't have been very high to begin with.

Hiller will draw the start for Wednesday's game against the Ducks, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The FAN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hiller's last action came March 21 against the Maple Leafs, followed by three games off. The team continues to roster three goaltenders, and none have separated himself enough to be worthy of a workhorse role. He'll look to turn around an atrocious start to March (4.05 GAA, .862 save percentage) Wednesday, but faces a tough matchup against a Ducks club that's beaten him nine times over two games this season. it may be best to avoid him in both season-long and daily leagues despite the limited slate.

Hiller stopped 21 of 24 shots in Monday's loss to the Maple Leafs.

EDGE Analysis

The final score ended up looking a bit more lopsided, as Toronto tacked on a pair of empty-net goals, but it was still enough to move Hiller to 1-7-0 in his last eight starts. The 34-year-old has given up at least three goals in all seven of the losses in that span and is having by far the worst campaign of his career.

Hiller is slated to start Monday's game against the Maple Leafs, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The FAN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hiller -- whose last start was on March 3 -- gets the nod for the Flames on Monday, while Niklas Backstrom will start both Sunday against Montreal and Thursday against Minnesota. Over his last three starts for the Flames, Hiller has given up 14 goals, and while Toronto occupies the bottom of the NHL's standings, the Leafs have won three of their last four games.

Hiller's awful 2015-16 campaign continued in kind Thursday, as he allowed five goals on 34 shots during a 6-3 loss in Buffalo.

EDGE Analysis

That's three consecutive losses for Hiller, a period in which he's given up 14 goals; going back farther, he's allowed a painful 26 goals in his last seven outings. There's not a goalie in the league who's been worse than Hiller -- among qualifiers, he's dead last in both GAA and save percentage, and it isn't particularly close. Don't touch him in fantasy -- not even with a 10-foot pole duct taped to another 10-foot pole. Even in the friendliest-seeming matchups, Hiller can't be trusted.

Hiller will be rolled out between the pipes Thursday for a road start against the Sabres, Roger Millions of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

Calgary has virtually no chance of making the playoffs, which leaves Flames fans clamoring for 24-year-old Joni Ortio to defend the twine and pick up more experience. Besides, Hiller owns a 3.31 GAA on the road this season, so it's not like he has the advantage in that area. Hiller will be an unrestricted free agent this summer after commanding $4.5 million between 2014-16.

Hiller was lackluster in a 5-3 loss to Philadelphia on Monday, allowing four goals on 28 shots. The fifth was an empty-netter.

EDGE Analysis

Hiller was lit up by a hat trick courtesy of Brayden Schenn in this one, who needed just two periods to slip three past the Swiss netminder. He's now lost five of his last six games and owns a ghastly 3.33 GAA to go with a similarly horrendous .885 save percentage on the year, firmly entrenching him on the "stay away" list of fantasy goalies.

Hiller will start in net Monday against the Flyers, Roger Millions of Sportsnet Calgary reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hiller had yielded the net the last three games to Joni Ortio, but it appears he will get a chance Monday. He has struggled as of late. He has only one win in his last five starts and has let in at least four goals in each of his losses. The way Calgary is playing makes it difficult to recommend Hiller or whoever is manning the Flames' net.
