According to a journalist of the Calgary Sun, it could be the last season for Hiller with the Flames, as Hiller’s contract wasn’t renewed until now. But this is no official statement by the team itself, so this could just be a rumor and will diverse from the truth. What is sure is that Hiller’s goaltending opponent, Karri Ramo got himself injured and will miss until the end of this season. Hiller will most likely be the number one for the games until the end of this season, which will be his last chance to prove himself to the General manager. If he improves towards the end of this season he will probably get a new contract with the Flames. If his performances will stay the same he most likely will have to leave the Flames, as his current average of save percentage is at 88,9% (not good enough).
What will happen to Hiller if he needs to leave the Flames?
A few days ago Hiller stated that he would like to stay in the NHL for at least two more years. We @swisshockeytrolls think that he wouldn’t have difficulties in finding a new team, as he still has a good reputation in the NHL. The question is, if he gets another number one position? He will probably have to be a back up, if he needs to leave the Flames, as his performance of this season clearly has dropped compared to his previous years in the NHL.
