Interview with Jonas Hiller of the Anaheim Ducks
There is a very good interview posted over at swisshockey.net with Jonas Hiller of the Anaheim Ducks that is worth taking a look at. In it he discusses:
- His place on the Anaheim depth chart
- Aspirations to start for Switzerland in the Vancouver 2010 games.
- Why Switzerland produces more goalies than position players for the NHL
- Francois Allaire’s impact on Swiss goalies.
Reader Michel Godbout of Montreal wrote in to add:
“Jacques Plante was actually the cornerstone of Swiss goalie (and other European countries) development (see Pelle Lindbergh, etc). When he moved there he opened up many goalie schools and that was the true base that Allaire picked up after.”
