Jonas Hiller announced his retirement today per EHC Biel-Bienne, his current Swiss team.

He started his NHL career with the Anaheim Ducks in the 2007-08 season. He played in 326 games over seven seasons with Anaheim. His record was 162-110-32 as a Duck. He had a 2.51 GAA and .916 SV%.

Hiller then spent the last two NHL seasons of his career with the Calgary Flames. He played in 76 games with the Flames posting a 35-30-5 record. He had a 2.73 GAA and .905 SV%.

For the last four seasons, he played in Europe with the EHC Biel-Bienne, a professional ice hockey club based in the city of Biel-Bienne, Switzerland. The team qualified for the playoffs each of the past four seasons.

One of my favorite Hiller moments was when he shut out the Los Angeles Kings at the Stadium Series game on January 25th, 2014. I was in attendance for the contest and the Ducks win was a nice belated birthday present(my wife surprised me with tickets).

He also turned in a great playoff performance during the 2009 Stanley Cup Playoffs. He played 13 games going 7-6-0 with a 2.23 GAA and amazing .943 SV%. Unfortunately, in 2011 Hiller had some issues with vertigo causing his play to become inconsistent or he could possibly have played longer.

He finished his NHL career posting a 197-140-37 record, with a 2.55 GAA and .914 SV%.

Happy retirement Hiller and best of luck in your future endeavors!

The NHL announced today that players can return home outside of their team’s home city and North America. Players are to self-quarantine until March 27th. At that time, the league will re-evaluate the situation and could have player practices resume at team facilities. The goal is to possibly have a training camp in roughly 45 days from now. Of course, this could all change based on what happens from now until then.
