Playing career

Hiller won Switzerland's championship in 2002, 2005 and 2007, as well as the Spengler Cup in 2004 and 2006 with Davos. In 2006–07, Hiller set a career-high win record with 28–16–0 in 44 games. He was signed as a free agent by the Ducks in May 2007.

Hiller made his debut for the Anaheim Ducks on September 30, 2007, defeating the Los Angeles Kings 4–1 in London, England. He allowed one goal on 23 shots for the win.

Ducks general manager at the time Brian Burke felt that Hiller was ready to become full-time backup to Jean-Sébastien Giguère, and released former backup Ilya Bryzgalov, who was eventually claimed on waivers by the Phoenix Coyotes. Hiller went on to record a 2.06 goals against average and .926 save percentage in 23 games in his first NHL season.

Hiller recorded his first NHL shutout in the 2008-09 NHL Season, defeating the Los Angeles Kings 2-0.

The Ducks named Hiller their starting goaltender for the 2009 NHL Playoffs after his strong regular season play. He started his first Stanley Cup Playoff game on April 16, 2009, recording a shutout against the San Jose Sharks with 35 saves. He and the Ducks ousted the Sharks in six games, marking only the fourth time that the President's Trophy winning team has been eliminated in the first round. The Ducks next matchup was the second seed Detroit Red Wings, a series which Detroit won in seven games. Many felt that it was due to Hiller's play that the Ducks were able to take the defending Stanley Cup champions to seven games.
