The New Jersey Devils today acquired defenseman Jonas Siegenthaler from Washington in exchange for Arizona's conditional third-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft (previously acquired in the Taylor Hall trade, Dec. 16, 2019). The condition is as follows: if Arizona's third-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft is not transferred to New Jersey, New Jersey will instead trade their own third-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft to Washington.

In 97 career NHL games, over the course of three seasons with Washington, he scored two goals and 11 assists for 13 points. Siegenthaler has also accumulated 55 penalty minutes and a plus-14 rating. The 6'2", 210lbs. left-shot blue-liner has appeared in 11 Stanley Cup Playoff contests in his career.
Born May 6, 1997, the native of Zurich, Switzerland, was Washington's second-round selection, 57th overall choice, in the 2015 NHL Draft. Prior to the NHL, he played parts of four seasons (2014-15 to 2017-18) with the Capitals' American Hockey League affiliate in Hershey. Before arriving in North America, Siegenthaler played for ZSC (NLA) and with the GC Kusnacht program. He has represented his home country in international play, participating in the 2015, 2016 and 2017 World Championships. In 2017, he was teammates with Devils' Captain Nico Hischier and they finished ranked top two in team scoring (Hischier, 4g-a-7pts & Siegenthaler, 1g-5a-6pts).
