HC Thurgau signed another foreigner, Jonathan Aung. The Canadian striker joins the AHL from Springfield Thunderbirds to HCT.
(HC Thurgau) Because Derek Hulk is still out due to injury, HC Thurgau has signed another foreigner, Jonathan Ang. The young Canadian striker with Malaysian roots will join HCT by the end of the season.
Jonathan Aung is still in a 14-day quarantine and is involved until Thursday, as he entered the United States from Canada. Since Canada is not on the BAG’s quarantine list, Jonathan Aang does not need to go to quarantine in Switzerland. Meanwhile, HCT has a work permit for Canada. Jonathan Aung will arrive in Switzerland on Sunday and will be available immediately for Stephen Mair’s team.
Jonathan Ang was drafted by the Florida Panthers of the 2016 fourth-round NHL draft. The 23-year-old has spent the last two seasons in the AHL with the Springfield Thunderbirds. He scored 46 points in 124 games. He previously played in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) with Peterborough Petes and Cernia Sting (83 goals and 115 assists in 259 games), where he was selected for the Allstar team in the 2017/18 season.
HC Thurgau warmly welcomes Jonathan Aang and looks forward to working with him. Welcome, Jonathan!
