Ducks' Hiller talks Olympics, contract on NHL Live

Anaheim Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller joined NHL Live to discuss his selection to the Switzerland Olympic hockey team that will compete in the 2014 Sochi Games.

"I'm super excited," Hiller said. "I was hoping, expecting it would go that way, but at the same time you never know. You're thinking about what could happen and why they could pick somebody else. I definitely was super, super excited when I found out."

Hiller (20-4-4, 2.42 goals-against average, .911 save percentage) is having a tremendous season with the Ducks. He's also playing his final year before becoming a free agent, and was asked if his expiring contract has impacted his game.

"I try to not let it impact me at all," Hiller said. "Sometimes is tough when you kind of not knowing what's going on and where you're going to be in a year for now. But at the same time, I told myself if I play well, the more options I have to pick from where I want to play. I like Anaheim and I'd definitely like to stay, but if that's not going to be the case, the better I play and the more I play, the better chance I have to get a good deal somewhere else."
