As the 23-year-old defenseman tells the news agency Keystone-SDA, those responsible have signaled that they want to keep him.

Jonas Siegenthaler's three-year contract with the Washington Capitals is expiring at the end of the current season, but the club's willingness to offer him a new deal gives the young defender some calm: "This gives me a certain security," the 23-year-old says to Keystone-SDA. "I have no stress."

The current contract of the former ZSC Lions defenseman is a two-way deal and has an annual average value (AAV) of almost $890,000 including bonuses, according to CapFriendly.

After being drafted in the second round of the 2015 NHL Draft and one full season with the AHL's Hershey Bears in 2017-18, Jonas Siegenthaler made his debut for the Capitals in the 2018-19 season. This season, he has appeared in 64 games with them and recorded a total of nine points (two goals).
