Report: Giguere not happy with role

Tuesday, 11.10.2009 / 3:35 PM / News


Anaheim Ducks goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere told the Los Angeles Daily News he would rather retire than be a backup goalie.

Jonas Hiller has started the last six games for the Ducks after Giguere suffered a groin injury on Oct. 24. Should Giguere not be able to unseat Hiller as the top goalie for the Ducks, he made it clear he would like to move on.

"I'd rather retire than be a backup goalie," Giguere said to the L.A. Daily News. "Something needs to happen. You get a guy like (Hiller) that's going to be a free agent at the end of the year and myself, making the money I'm making, either I'm leaving or he's leaving.

"I want to play; that's when I have fun. Right now, this is not fun."

Quote of the Day

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
