Capitals’ Jonas Siegenthaler: “You Do Anything To Win Those Games. I Feel Like I’m Well Prepared. Everyone’s Well Prepared.”


After his Washington Capitals teammates said that he liked board games, defenseman Jonas Siegenthaler said, “I don’t have them here,” but he will have to get some. “It’s always fun to play board games,” he continued, adding that he liked to play Uno even though he is not into card games much.

Siegenthaler said he practiced and worked out at home in Switzerland during the NHL Pause. He added that he “skated pretty early” in the pause, and he quarantined at home before he had to do so here.

He thinks that there is “for sure” an opportunity to lock up a spot among the Capitals’ top-six defensive group but acknowledged “you do anything to win those games. I feel like I’m well prepared. Everyone’s well prepared.” Siegenthaler feels like everyone has an opportunity during training camp.

Siegenthaler said he saw friends and family during the hiatus. He added that life is “basically back to normal” in Switzerland, and he was “living the same summer as [I] usually [do]” before he came here.

Siegenthaler said he would bring a PlayStation (his teammates like to play FIFA and Call of Duty) to the Toronto bubble. “[It is] fun to play with your teammates as a group,” he said.
