|(4/19/16) On Tuesday, Hiller signed a three-year contract to play in Switzerland for EHC Biel, Sportsnet reports.|
Hiller, who would've been an unrestricted free agent this summer, just completed the second year of a $9 million deal with the Flames, which proved to be a real money burner with the netminder finishing 2015-16 with an atrocious 3.51 GAA and .879 save percentage. He also had a losing record at 9-11-1. The awful year came as a surprise, since Hiller won 26 games thanks to a 2.36 GAA and .918 save mark in the previous campaign, his first go-around with the Flames after seven seasons with the Ducks. Still, at this juncture, the 34-year-old should be more comfortable returning to his native land to stop pucks. One would think the one-time NHL All-Star's career is over, but we'll see how he fares in the Swiss league before jumping to that conclusion.
