Hiller will appear in his first Olympic games with Switzerland and it will mark the fourth time he will backstop his country on an international stage.
He was a backup goalie for Switzerland at the 2006 World Championships and in 2007 and 2008 he was the starter for Switzerland – he totaled a 4-5-0 record with a 2.59 goals-against average and a .912 save percentage in nine appearances overall.
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
