Report: Ducks to start Hiller against Blackhawks

According to reports, the Anaheim Ducks will give Jonas Hiller the start in goal Wednesday night when they host the Chicago Blackhawks in a battle of the NHL's top teams.

The Ducks will be shooting for their 13th consecutive home victory and could climb to within three points of the Blackhawks in the Presidents' Trophy race if they win in regulation.

Hiller is 10-2-3 with a 2.53 goals-against average and .911 save percentage, and has been particularly hot of late. He's 4-0-1 in his past five starts, giving up a total of six goals and posting a .956 save percentage.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
