Ducks to part with Hiller, Koivu, Winnik

Anaheim, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Anaheim Ducks general manager Bob Murray began his club's roster reshaping, announcing that goaltender Jonas Hiller, along with forwards Saku Koivu and Daniel Winnik will not be offered contracts.

"I spoke to Saku, Jonas and Dan all last week. I told them that we would not be offering them contracts moving forward," Murray stated at a conference call. "Jonas was a No. 1 goalie here for five years, and did a great job for us. He was good about it. He was professional. Saku -- what can you say? He's had a great career, but I don't know what he�s going to do moving forward. We decided we're going to move on and go in a different direction."

Hiller endured an injury-plagued rollercoaster season in 2013-14, going 29-13-7 with a 2.48 goals-against average, .911 save percentage and five shutouts in 50 appearances. He participated in just six of Anaheim's 13 playoff games, going 2-2 with a 2.19 GAA.

However, with backups Frederik Andersen and John Gibson doing a good enough job in his absence to gain playoff starts, the 32-year-old Swiss backstop will have to ply his trade elsewhere.

He'll leave Orange County after seven seasons with a 162-110-32 record, 2.51 GAA and 21 whitewashes in 326 regular-season appearances, adding a 12-12 postseason mark.

Koivu, 39, wrapped up what might be the last of his 18-year NHL career and final of five with Anaheim, by potting 11 goals and 29 points over 65 games. Since breaking into the league with Montreal for the 1995-96 campaign, the native of Finland has accumulated 255 goals and 832 points over 1,124 contests.

Winnik tallied six goals and 24 assists in 76 games during his second full season with the Ducks. A journeyman heading into his eighth pro campaign, he has picked up 49 goals and 101 assists in 490 games for the Coyotes, Avs, Sharks and Ducks.

The reigning Pacific Division champions, of course, bid farewell to 21-year veteran Teemu Selanne after dropping Game 7 of their Western Conference semifinal against the Los Angeles Kings.
