ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Ducks signed Jonas Hiller to a four-year deal Saturday, taking the goaltender off this summer's free-agent market.

Hiller signed a contract extension through the 2013-14 NHL season worth a reported US$18 million.

"Jonas has proved himself as a starting NHL goaltender," general manager Bob Murray said in a release. "We expect him to only get better and are pleased he's committed to us for four more seasons."

The 27-year-old Hiller, who will play for Switzerland at the Vancouver Olympics, was slated to become an unrestricted free agent July 1.

He's posted a 54-37-5 record with a 2.46 goals-against average and .919 save percentage in 108 career NHL appearances with the Ducks.

Hiller is 21-15-1 this season with a 2.75 GAA and .916 save percentage in 39 appearances.

"This is a very exciting day for me personally," Hiller said. "Anaheim has been a great place for me to play, and I couldn't be happier to stay here."

Hiller made his playoff debut last season, going 7-6 with a 2.23 GAA and league-leading .943 save percentage. He helped Anaheim to an opening-round victory over the top-seeded San Jose Sharks. The Ducks made it to Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals but lost to the Detroit Red Wings.
