Siegenthaler Gets First Two-Point Game

Just a few weeks ago, Jonas Siegenthaler scored his first NHL goal, a full year after his first game. Wednesday’s 4-3 Caps victory gave the 22-year-old defenseman another first-time stat – a two assist night.

Siegenthaler assisted on Richard Panik’s second period goal, and got a secondary assist on Brendan Leipsic’s game-winning goal in the third period.

But to Siegenthaler didn’t see anything special in the way he played.

“It wasn’t like, crazy plays. I passed to Gudy (Radko Gudas), Gudy passed to Leiper (Leipsic), and he scored. And I went off the boards with Panik, and he scored,”  Siegenthaler said, also laughing. “So it wasn’t really fancy. I’ll take it. It feels nice.”

That said, Siegenthaler now has five points on the season, passing the four he put up last year, also in 26 games. More importantly, he’s earned himself a consistent roster spot with the Caps and is making the most of that time on the blueline.
