The Good: For a goaltender that is extremely tall, Jonas Hiller is extremely quick and is usually in position for both first and second shots. Jonas Is an extremely positional netminder with great size. He excels in high-pressure games, but hasn’t had to play in many as a member of the Anaheim Ducks. Hiller possesses quick lateral movement and plenty of confidence in his butterfly style, and shakes off bad goals (and games) well. He currently h0lds the Ducks record for season highest save percentage and career highest playoffs save percentage and shares, with Jean-Sébastien Giguère, the Ducks record for season playoffs most losses.
The Bad: He tends to be badly exposed when his positioning fails him. Gets beaten upstairs when he goes down to his knees too early, and then not cover the target of high shots as well. He has had to deal with vertigo problems. While Hiller is a tall netminder, your best option will be to put the puck high blocker side. Hiller has a great glove hand but is not as good on his blocker side.
