Jonas Siegenthaler’s feels will be ‘heating up’ during his NHL debut: ‘I dreamed about it all my life’
After a strong preseason, 2015 second-round pick Jonas Siegenthaler will make his NHL debut Friday night against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Siegenthaler is receiving the opportunity after John Carlson had to bow out of the starting lineup due to a lower-body injury.
The fleet-footed Swiss defenseman is a year removed from his first full season in the AHL where he tallied six goals and six assists in 75 games.
“I dreamed about [this moment] all my life,” Siegenthaler continued. “I never felt this happy in my life. It’s something really special for me and I worked hard to get here. It’s so special, I can’t really describe it. It’s just a big step in my life and I’m pretty excited about it.”
