Dominik Binias spent the summer training with SC Langenthal and also suited up in four preseason games for them as well. As HC Thurgau's president Thomas Müller tells the Thurgauer Zeitung, the forward did, however, not like it there. Former HCT player Frantisek Rehak (now SC Langenthal) also recommended the Swiss League team to Binias.
The Czech is a product of HC Fribourg-Gottéron's organization and last played for their U20 team. In 35 games for them last season, he recorded 23 goals and 17 assists.
