Dominic split time between the NLA and NLB leagues through the last few seasons. He has also competed for Team Switzerland U16 international team.
Dominic's younger brother Melvin was Switzerland's starting goalie in the IIHF World Junior Championship last December.
The second player joining #RattNation is '94 born forward Garrek Skillicorn. Skillicorn was acquired early Wednesday morning from the Bobcaygeon Bucks.
