Flames' Hiller '100 percent' after appendicitis: report
Calgary Flames goaltender Jonas Hiller is fully recovered after having an appendicitis attack in July.

Calgary Flames goaltender Jonas Hiller is fully recovered after having an appendicitis attack in July.

"I talked to him the other day and he's back, 100 percent, skating, working out," Flames general manager Brad Treliving told the Calgary Herald on Thursday. "He's been back in his routine, fully functional, and no issues."

Hiller, who had the attack while training in his native Switzerland, had an arthroscopic procedure in mid-July.

"These things can happen, obviously ...," Treliving told the newspaper. "Your first thought is concern for his well-being, then you do your homework and find out more information. We don’t expect it to be an issue."

Hiller signed a two-year contract with the Flames on July 1 as a free agent.

The 32-year-old was 29-13-7 with a 2.48 goals-against average and .911 save percentage in 50 regular-season games for the Anaheim Ducks last season.

Quote of the Day

I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
