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.
He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
