After 18 seasons in the crease, including nine in the NHL, goaltender Jonas Hiller has retired from professional hockey.

His current team, EHC Biel-Bienne of Switzerland’s National League, tweeted the announcement on Monday, after which the Anaheim Ducks sent out a congratulatory message of their own.

Hiller, 38, signed with the Ducks in 2007 and went on to play there for seven seasons. Most notably, he appeared in a league-high 73 games in the 2011-12 season.

After his stint in Anaheim, Hiller signed as a free agent with the Calgary Flames, where he played for two seasons.

In total, Hiller amassed a 197-140-37 record, 2.51 goals-against average and .916 save percentage in his NHL career.

Internationally, the Swiss native appeared in three Olympic Games (2010, 2014, 2018), leading all goalies at the 2018 Games in GAA (1.14) and SVV% (.956).
