Hiller finished in Anaheim?
TheFourthPeriod.com

If it didn't seem as Jonas Hiller's tenure with the Anaheim Ducks was coming to an end earlier it the season, it sure looks that way now.

The Ducks have opted to go with young netminders Frederik Andersen and John Gibson instead of Hiller for most of the playoffs.

As a result, Anaheim's decision has furthered speculation that Hiller will not be returning to the Ducks next season.

Hiller, 32, is in the final-year of a four-year, $18 million contract and is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent July 1.

The Ducks had shopped Hiller during the season, but opted against trading him.

In 50 games with the Ducks this season, Hiller posted a 29-13-7 record with a 2.48 goals-against-average, a .911 save percentage and five shutouts.

It's believed the Ducks will go ahead with Gibson and Andersen between the pipes next season, but could opt for a veteran backup.

It has also been widely reported that the Ducks may pursue star goalie Ryan Miller this summer, if he hits the open market as an unrestricted free agent.
