Hiller, 34, spent the majority of nine seasons in the NHL beginning with the Anaheim Ducks in 2007-08. After seven seasons in Anaheim, he signed with the Calgary Flames for the 2014-15 season and remained in Calgary this past year.
After appearing in 52 games during the 2014-15 season and helping the Flames reach the postseason, he played only 26 games this season, posting a record of 9-11-0 to accompany his 3.51 goals-against average and .879 save-percentage.
The Flames struggled in general throughout 2015-16, going 35-40-7 and finishing fifth in the Pacific Division.
Prior to his career in the NHL, Hiller had stints in the Swiss-A and Swiss-B leagues. His NHL career included an overall regular season record of 197-140-37. With his North American career likely over, he’ll finish with a .914 save-percentage and a 2.55 goals-against average.
