The Anaheim Ducks announced on Wednesday that they have signed goaltender Jonas Hiller to a two-year contract extension through the 2009-10 NHL season. Per club policy, financial terms were not disclosed.

Hiller, 26 (2/12/82), made his NHL debut with the Ducks in 2007-08, posting a 10-7-1 record with a 2.06 goals-against average (GAA) and .927 save percentage (SV%) in 23 games. He owned the second-best GAA (1.55; 11GA/426 MIN) and SV% (.952, 217-of-228 shots) in the NHL after March 1 while compiling an 8-4-0 record over his final 12 starts of the regular season.

After posting a 2.06 goals against average, a .927 save percentage and a 10-7-1 record in 23 games as a rookie in 2007-08, Jonas Hiller was rewarded with a two-year contract extension from the Ducks on Wednesday.

A native of Felben Wellhausen, Switzerland, Hiller earned a 4-1 win over Los Angeles in his NHL debut on Sept. 30 in London, England. With his appearance, Hiller became just the fourth Swiss goaltender to play in an NHL game, joining David Aebischer (COL), Martin Gerber (ANA) and Pauli Jaks (LA). Following the 2008 NHL Playoffs, Hiller joined Switzerland for the 2008 IIHF World Championship in Halifax and Quebec City. He appeared in three games, going 1-2-0 with a 2.79 GAA and .915 SV%. Hiller’s team was eventually eliminated by Russia, who went on to win the gold medal.

Originally signed by Anaheim as a free agent on May 25, 2007, the 6-2, 196-pound goaltender spent the 2006-07 season with Davos of the Swiss National League. In 44 appearances with Davos, Hiller posted a 28-16-0 record with a 2.60 GAA. In addition, he helped Davos to both Swiss National League and Spengler Cup championships while also being voted Best Goalie in the Swiss League. In 141 career Swiss National League appearances, Hiller owned an 80-52-10 record with 16 shutouts and a 2.53 GAA.
