Ducks Sign Hiller to Four-Year Extension

The Ducks announced today they have signed goaltender Jonas Hiller to a four-year contract extension through the 2013-14 NHL season. Per club policy, financial terms were not disclosed.

Hiller, 27 (2/12/82), has posted a 54-37-5 record with a 2.46 goals-against average (GAA) and .919 save percentage (SV%) in 108 career NHL appearances with the Ducks. Since he entered the NHL in 2007-08, Hiller ranks third among all NHL goaltenders in SV% (min: 100 games). He has also made 13 career playoff appearances for Anaheim (all last season), leading the league in SV% (.943). He went 7-6 in the postseason with a 2.23 GAA.

“Jonas has proved himself as a starting NHL goaltender,” said Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray. “We expect him to only get better and are pleased he’s committed to us for four more seasons.”

Currently in his third NHL season, Hiller has compiled a 21-15-1 record with a 2.75 GAA and .916 SV% in 39 appearances this year. Hiller won a season-high five straight games from Jan. 5-13, stopping 152-of-161 shots for a 1.80 GAA and .944 SV%. He currently is tied with Vancouver’s Roberto Luongo for the league lead in January victories with nine. Next month, Hiller will represent Switzerland at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver.

“This is a very exciting day for me personally,” said Hiller. “Anaheim has been a great place for me to play, and I couldn’t be happier to stay here.”

Hiller made his Stanley Cup Playoffs debut in 2009. Including his league-leading SV% (.943), he ranked third in GAA (2.23) and tied for first in shutouts (2). He helped lead Anaheim to an opening-round victory over the top-seeded San Jose Sharks and a Game 7 appearance against the Detroit Red Wings in the Western Conference Semifinals. During the 2008-09 regular season, Hiller ranked tied for seventh among NHL goaltenders in GAA (2.39) and tied for sixth in SV% (.919).

A native of Felben Wellhausen, Switzerland, Hiller made his NHL debut with the Ducks in 2007-08, posting a 10-7-1 record with a 2.06 GAA and .927 SV% in 23 games. He owned the second-best GAA (1.55) and SV% (.952) in the NHL after Mar. 1 while compiling an 8-4-0 record over his final 12 starts of the regular season. Making his NHL debut on Sept. 30, 2007 vs. Los Angeles in London, England, Hiller became just the fourth Swiss goaltender to play in an NHL game, joining David Aebischer (COL), Martin Gerber (ANA) and Pauli Jaks (LA).

Originally signed by Anaheim as a free agent on May 25, 2007, the 6-2, 190-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.
