The Anaheim Ducks activated goalie Jonas Hiller off injured reserve Friday after he missed two games with fatigue/lightheadedness.
Hiller, who played in his first NHL All-Star Game on Jan. 30 in Raleigh, N.C., was pulled in the first period of a 4-3 loss to San Jose on Feb. 2, the first game following the All-Star break.
Hiller skated with the rest of the team Wednesday in Vancouver for the first time since being placed on IR. Curtis McElhinney started in net that night as the Ducks earned a 4-3 win. McElhinney picked up his second career shutout in a 3-0 victory at Colorado last Saturday.
Hiller has gone 9-3-0 with a 2.33 goals-against average and .934 save percentage over his last 14 games. He is tied for second in the NHL in wins (25), second in appearances (47), first in saves (1,361), tied for sixth in save percentage (.925) and tied for sixth in shutouts (4).
Meanwhile, the Ducks assigned goaltender Timo Pielmeier to the Elmira Jackals, Anaheim’s development affiliate in the ECHL.
