from Eric Stephens of the OC Register,
Murray said he spoke with Hiller last week and the two agreed that he should return the ice and take shots in goal when he appears at former Ducks goaltending coach Francois Allaire’s camp in Switzerland.
“He’s fine,” Murray said. “He’s in good spirits. We talked about a couple of things. He’ll be skating on the ice sometime around the middle of July.
“He’ll be doing a camp early in the week and then skate with some pros after that.”
Hiller’s uncertain situation apparently will not play a role in re-signing Ray Emery as Murray indicated that he has not spoken with Emery’s agent, J.P. Barry. Barry did not return messages left by the Register.
Murray might not be making much of an effort to bring back Emery, who came back from a serious knee injury last season and became the Ducks’ lead goalie down the stretch and in the playoffs.
Emery, a an unrestricted free agent on July 1, figures to be seeking a one-way NHL contract with a team that will give him an opportunity to start after going 7-2 with a 2.28 goals-against average in nine regular-season starts.
