Hiller suffered from appendicitis while training in Switzerland mid-last month, and underwent an appendectomy. According to Calgary GM Brad Treliving, the recovery time of the procedure is around 9-12 days. Hiller should not be effected by the procedure by the time training camp begins.
The veteran goalie only started 50 games for Anaheim during the last regular season, resulting in 29 wins and 13 regulation losses. In the playoffs, Hiller started six games and had two wins. He hopes to start more games and have more wins with his new contract with Calgary.
