Playing career

Drafted 161st overall by the Colorado Avalanche in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft, Aebischer was initially the third-choice goaltender for the Avs, but when Marc Denis was traded away to the Columbus Blue Jackets, Aebischer became the backup to Patrick Roy.

Aebischer became Colorado's starting goaltender following Roy's retirement, posting a 2.09 goals-against average in the 2003–04 season. During the 2004–05 NHL lockout, he played for HC Lugano in the Swiss Nationalliga A.

After the Lockout Aebischer returned to the Avalanche for the 2005–06 season but unable to duplicate his 2003–04 form was traded to Montreal in exchange for goalie José Théodore on March 8, 2006, a day before the NHL trade deadline.

On July 12, 2006, the Montreal Canadiens re-signed him to a one year deal, worth $1.9 million. In his first full season in Montreal, he posted a 13–12–3 record.

On July 19, 2007, Aebischer signed as a Free Agent with the Phoenix Coyotes to a one-year, $600,000 contract. However, he lost the goaltending battle in camp to Alex Auld and Mikael Tellqvist, and was waived. He went unclaimed and was subsequently assigned to the Coyotes AHL affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage. On November 23, Aebischer was loaned to HC Lugano to make room on the San Antonio roster for goaltender Alex Auld.
