Most NHL players haven’t been on the ice since the coronavirus pandemic forced the suspension of the NHL’s 2019-20 season. “My game’s probably going to look terrible,” Winnipeg Jets star Patrik Laine recently said to the media.
One player who is beginning to get his reps back on actual ice is Capitals defenseman Jonas Siegenthaler. Siegs returned to his home country of Switzerland and is working out with The 6 Sports Leadership, located in the city of Martigny.
Siegenthaler commented on the Instagram Story video, “Shaking the rust off.”
He doesn’t look bad for a 10-week layoff.
Siegenthaler was also featured in a TV feature detailing his workouts along with Simon Knak, a WHL prospect for the 2020 NHL Draft.

Earlier in May, Siegenthaler began skating on synthetic ice, but there’s no real substitute for the real thing.
