Siegenthaler signed a one-year, $800,00 extension with the Capitals on Wednesday.
Siegenthaler took a big step forward in his sophomore season, posting two goals, nine points and a plus-11 rating in 64 games. The Swiss defender will be relied upon as a shutdown presence once again in 2020-21, but the lack of offensive output keeps him off the radar in most fantasy formats.
Siegenthaler will play Sunday against the Wild, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.
Siegenthaler has been a healthy scratch the last three games and is likely to have difficulty securing consistent playing time after Washington acquired defenseman Brendan Dillon from the Sharks at the trade deadline. With just one assist in 18 games since the calendar flipped to 2020, the 22-year-old defender is a non-factor for fantasy purposes.
Siegenthaler tallied an assist and two shots during Tuesday's 6-1 victory over the Senators.
The helper gives Siegenthaler four points over his last nine games. The 22-year-old defender is developing into a serviceable defenseman in his first full NHL season, but with two goals, nine points and a plus-10 rating in 44 games, he remains largely irrelevant for most fantasy purposes.
Siegenthaler has posted a goal and two assists during a three-game point streak.
Siegenthaler is heating up with the streak after recording just two assists in the previous 17 games. The 22-year-old defender has managed two goals and eight points in 38 games in his sophomore season with the Capitals but has yet to establish himself as a dependable fantasy asset.
Siegenthaler had two assists and was plus-2 in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Panthers.
It was the first multi-point game of the season for the 22-year-old, who had gone his previous seven games without a point. With just one goal and eight assists through his first 52 NHL games, Siegenthaler is not someone fantasy owners should be rostering.
Siegenthaler tallied a goal and blocked five shots while logging 15:21 of ice time during Saturday's 5-2 win over the Golden Knights.
Siegenthaler's marker was the first of his NHL career and happened to come on the one year anniversary of his NHL debut. With only a goal and two assists in 18 games, however, the second-round pick from the 2015 NHL Entry Draft remains irrelevant from fantasy consideration in most formats.
Siegenthaler produced an assist, three blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Oilers.
Siegenthaler's shot from the point in the second period was tipped in front by Alex Ovechkin, putting the Capitals ahead 2-1 at the time. The Swiss defenseman has two assists and a plus-7 rating in 12 appearances this year, but he's much more of a defensive presence rather than a regular on the scoresheet.
Siegenthaler (upper body) blocked four shots and was plus-1 in a 5-2 win over the Rangers on Friday.
The 22-year-old did not finish Wednesday's game against Toronto, leaving with an upper-body injury after a collision with teammate Richard Panik, but Siegenthaler was right back in the lineup Friday, paired with John Carlson, the NHL's top-scoring defenseman. Siegenthaler has one assist through nine games.
Siegenthaler (upper body) expects to play Friday against the Rangers, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Siegenthaler appears no worse for wear after exiting Wednesday's win over the Maple Leafs following a collision with winger Richard Panik (upper body). The Swiss blueliner is expected to skate alongside John Carlson on the first pairing, but the return of Michal Kempny (hamstring) could mean his role gets reduced once the latter gets back into game shape. Needless to say, with just one helper and four shots in eight games, the 22-year-old's already limited fantasy value could all but vanish if he sees a meaningful reduction in his role.
Siegenthaler left Wednesday's game against Toronto with an upper-body injury and won't return.
Siegenthaler collided with teammate Richard Panik in the second period, and was visibly shaken up from the hit. The Captials would go on to say that Siegenthaler will be re-evaluated Thursday, so more specifics regarding the injury will likely come out at that time. For now, the team will roll with five defenseman for the reminder of the game, with Dmitry Orlov likely to get a bump in ice time to the top pair.
Siegenthaler was technically reassigned to the minors Sunday, but is expected to be in the lineup for Tuesday's clash with Dallas, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.
Siegenthaler averaged 17:23 of ice time through the first three games of the year and should continue to see a similar workload the rest of the year. In those appearances, the Swiss international registered six PIM, one shot and one hit. The 22-year-old's limited offensive offside makes him a low-end fantasy option.
Siegenthaler is expected to draw into the lineup Thursday against the Hurricanes, Chris Kuc of The Athletic reports.
Siegenthaler is expected to start on the third pairing with Brooks Orpik, replacing a beleaguered Christian Djoos, who has looked out of sorts in the first three games of Round One. The 21-year-old defender has an opportunity to cement himself as an everyday NHL player, but his lack of offensive production (four assists in 26 games) doesn't suggest a great deal of fantasy upside.
Siegenthaler was called up from AHL Hershey on Wednesday.
Expect to see a lot more of Siegenthaler at the top level with Michal Kempny (hamstring) out 4-6 months. The rookie has fashioned four assists to complement a plus-7 rating through 25 NHL games.
Siegenthaler was recalled from AHL Hershey on Monday.
The decision to promote Siegenthaler, 21, comes as Michal Kempny (leg) awaits word on the severity of his injury. The 21-year-old blueliner has four points in 25 NHL games this season, and six more at the AHL level, in 34 appearances. From a fantasy standpoint, Siegenthaler's lack of production at both levels makes this an ignorable transaction.
Washington reassigned Siegenthaler to AHL Hershey on Friday.
The Capitals recalled Christian Djoos (thigh) from his AHL conditioning stint in a corresponding move, so they're no longer in need of Siegenthaler's services as an extra blueliner. The 21-year-old rookie will return to a prominent role with Hershey, where he's posted two assists in 14 appearances this campaign.
Siegenthaler joined Washington for practice Thursday, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports, indicating he was promoted from the minors.
Siegenthaler's demotion was always going to be temporary, as the club wanted to get him some additional ice time in the minors during the All-Star break. The defenseman will push Madison Bowey for minutes, though Siegenthaler could find himself back with AHL Hershey once Christian Djoos (thigh) is activated off injured reserve.
Siegenthaler was shipped down to AHL Hershey on Thursday, TSN reports.
Siegenthaler averaged just 15:12 of ice time in his previous five outings and was scratched twice over that stretch, so it shouldn't come as a surprise to see him headed to the minors. While with the Bears, the Swiss defenseman figures to see significantly more minutes and figures to be called back up following the All-Star break.
Siegenthaler tallied an assist and two penalty minutes during Thursday's 4-2 win over the Bruins.
Siegenthaler is up to four assists and a plus-7 rating in 17 games. The 21-year-old has been a steady performer on the third pairing since his recall and has temporarily jumped Madison Bowey on the depth chart. The lack of offensive production, however, gives him little fantasy value.
Siegenthaler has posted three assists and a plus-6 rating in his last 13 games.
Siegenthaler has performed well since being recalled in response to injuries to Brooks Orpik (knee) and Christian Djoos (thigh). The 21-year-old projects as a solid defensive defenseman in the NHL ranks and could push for regular ice time in 2019-20, but his fantasy upside for this season is minimal even in deeper formats unless he can find more of a scoring touch.
Siegenthaler tallied an assist, a plus-2 rating and three hits during Saturday's 3-2 win over the Senators.
Siegenthaler has three assists in 12 games and has helped solidify the blue line following injuries to Brooks Orpik (knee) and Christian Djoos (thigh). With the aforementioned Orpik expected to return soon, the 21-year-old Swiss defender could be headed back to the minors in the near future, but he has shown flashes of potential and should be a full-time NHLer before too long.
