Jonas Hiller is going home.

The Flames goaltender for the last two seasons has signed a three-year deal to play for EHC Biel of the Swiss League.

After a reasonably successful first season in Calgary where he helped his team to a playoff berth, Hiller struggled mightily in his second season with the Flames. His save percentage of .879 was the worst of any NHL regular this season.

The former all-star goaltender is now 34 and clearly not an NHL starting goaltender anymore. Hiller never seemed to regain his form after suffering from vertigo following the 2011 NHL All-Star Game.

The nine-year NHL veteran hasn’t played in the Swiss league since leaving HC Davos for the NHL in 2007.

Hiller leaves the NHL having appeared in 404 games, posting a record of 197-140-37, 2.55 GAA and .914 SV%.
