The night after Lucas Johansen scored his first career AHL point, Jonas Siegenthaler had a milestone of his own.
The Swiss defense prospect scored his first career AHL goal Sunday against the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.
Wayne Simpson and future AHL Hall of Famer Chris Bourque assisted on the goal.
Siegenthaler’s tally, a wrist shot from the slot, would help rally the Bears who found themselves trailing the Phantoms 3-1 midway through the third period.
Fellow defense prospect Colby Williams would add the equalizer with 2:30 left in the stanza forcing overtime. After a scoreless overtime period, former Bears forward Chris Conner scored the only goal in the shootout to give the Phantoms the win. The Bears went 0-3 on the shootout last season, and have not won one since the last game of the 2015-2016 season against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.
The shootout loss marked the Bears first standing point of the year (0-2-1).
