Flames Injury Update: Jonas Hiller suffers appendicitis attack, has minor procedure

By on 7/23/2014 01:30:00 PM

According to Ryan Dadoun of NBC Sports, Calgary Flames goalie Jonas Hiller's appendix ruptured while in Switzerland training for his first season with the Flames. Hiller underwent an appendectomy shortly after the attack, and is expected to recover quickly.

It was originally unknown whether Hiller would need to have surgery, but according to Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun, he needed a minor procedure to remove the appendix. Hiller is expected to recover from the procedure quickly in time to make his first appearance as the starting goalie on his new team.

Hiller, 32, will be playing in a Calgary jersey for the first time after signing a two year $9 million contract. He has been a part of the Anaheim Ducks club for the last seven seasons, finishing his season with 29 wins, and a save percentage of .911 in 50 games.
