Yet another “chunk” or patch upgrade for Jonas Siegenthaler @siegenthaler34
1. Jonas is a smooth skating defenseman from Switzerland but of Thai descent.
2. He played in Switzerland as a youth, was drafted 57th overall by the @capitals in the 2015 @nhl Entry Draft, won the Swiss Cup with the @zsclions in 2015-2016 and then came to North America.
3. During the 2017 off-season, Jonas lost 24 pounds, which he attributed to eating less snacks and cutting down on his mom’s Thai cooking.
4. Jonas often trains in the off-season back at home with fellow Swiss NHLers @rjosi90 and Nino Niederreiter.
5. After a full season with the @thehersheybears in 2017-2018, Jonas was recalled by the Capitals, and he earned a permanent spot on the blueline in 2019-2020. The following season, he was traded to the @njdevils, where he has been a steady presence on the Devils’ blueline.
