Fatigue issues put Ducks' Hiller back on IR
Anaheim Ducks' Jonas Hiller placed on IR.
Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller has had a recurrence of fatigue/lightheadedness and has been placed on injured reserve. He will miss the next three games.

Hiller reported the symptoms during practice yesterday at Honda Center and left the ice early. He had originally missed three games with the same condition, though he traveled with the team during its recent four-game road trip. He returned to action against Edmonton on Sunday night, where he had 12 saves in a 4-0 shutout of the Oilers.

Hiller ranks third in the NHL in saves (1373), tied for fourth in wins (26), fourth in appearances (48), tied for fourth in save percentage (.925) and tied for fifth in shutouts (5). He has a .935 save percentage and and 2.15 goals-against average in his last 15 contests (during which he's gone 10-3-0).

Curtis McElhinney will likely be in net for the Ducks tonight vs. the Washington Capitals at Honda Center, with his backup being Timo Pielmeier, who was recalled by the Ducks from the ECHL's Elmira Jackals this morning.

Quote of the Day

Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
