Jonathan Williamson Rheault (born August 1, 1986) is an American professional ice hockey player who is currently playing for EHC Visp in the Swiss National League B (NLB). Rheault was born in Arlington, Texas, but grew up in Deering, New Hampshire.
Raised in Deering, New Hampshire, Rheault attended Providence College from 2004 to 2008 and was selected by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 5th round (145th overall) of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. Coming out of college, he played his first games as a professional hockey player with AHL's Manchester Monarchs. He also spent time with the Ontario Reign of the East Coast Hockey League and on June 16, 2010, he was signed as a free agent by the Abbotsford Heat. After two successful seasons with the Heat in the AHL, Rheault was signed to a one-year NHL contract with the Florida Panthers of the NHL on July 2, 2012.
With the 2012 NHL lockout in affect, Rheault was directly assigned to AHL affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage to begin the 2012–13 season. In producing 37 points through 50 games with the Rampage, Rheault received his first NHL recall by the Panthers on March 5, 2013. He made his long-awaited NHL debut that night, in a 4-1 home victory over the Winnipeg Jets.
On July 2, 2013, Rheault signed his first European contract with German club Adler Mannheim. During his three-year stint at Mannheim, he won the German championship in 2015. As a member of the Adler squad, he competed in the German top-flight Deutsche Eishockey Liga, the Champions Hockey League and the 2015 Spengler Cup.
