The Blue Jackets have activated Seth Jones (foot) from IR; expected to return on Monday.
Jones missed the last six games with hairline fracture in his foot, but is expected to return to the lineup tonight vs. Colorado. Jones has collected three goals and three assists in 10 games this season and is expected to return to his spot alongside Zach Werenski tonight.
Jones will miss three weeks with a hairline fracture in his foot.
Jones suffered the injury on Saturday in St. Louis and will miss the next three weeks. Missing three weeks would mean that Jones will miss the next 10 games, which is a huge loss for the Blue Jackets. The 22-year-old has six points (3G / 3A) in 10 games while averaging 24:14 TOI per game. Zach Werenski and Jack Johnson will likely be leaned on more heavily with Jones out.
The Blue Jackets signed Seth Jones to a six-year contract worth $32.5 million ($5.416M AAV).
Jones, 21, had 20 points (2G / 18A) in 41 games with the Blue Jackets after he was acquired from Nashville. Overall, he had 31 points (3G / 28A) in 2015-16, which was a new career-high for the 2013 4th overall pick. Jones has top-pairing upside and the Blue Jackets are hoping he takes a big step forward in 2016-17.
The Blue Jackets have acquired Seth Jones from the Predators for Ryan Johansen.
Jones was the fourth overall pick in 2013 and has been a force at both ends of the ice for the Predators. Nashville likely did not want to give Jones up, but they have a plethora of talented defensemen and were seeking help at forward, so Jones was dealt. He has 63 points (15G / 48A) in 199 career NHL games.
Jones (concussion) played 12:40 and registered one shot on goal in his return to the Predators lineup on Saturday.
Jones had missed the previous five games with a concussion he suffered on March 23rd in Chicago. The Predators season is coming to a close, which means the end of Jones' rookie season. As of now, he has six goals and 18 asssits in 73 games. His 24 points has him tied for 21st amongst rookies in scoring.
Jones (concussion) is on the ice for the Predators' morning skate, but it appears he won't play.
Jones was cleared to return to game action on Tuesday, but he is not taking part in line rushes this morning. Usually if a player is returning he will skate along side his D partner in practice--Jones is not which suggests he will miss his fifth consecutive game.
Jones (upper-body) has been cleared to return to game action.
Jones missed the last four games after being rocked by Andrew Shaw on March 23 in Chicago. Jones has scored six goals with 18 assists (24 points) and a minus-23 rating in 72 games in his rookie season. Expect him to be back in the lineup on Friday.
Jones (upper-body) is not on the ice for the Preds' morning skate.
Jones left Sunday's game after being crunched by Andrew Shaw. His absence this morning suggests that he will not be in the lineup tonight vs. Colorado. That would mean Michael Del-Zotto will be back in the lineup tonight.
Seth Jones will be paired with Shea Weber to begin tonight's game.
With Roman Josi out with a concussion the Predators have to shake up their pairings a bit. Jones has yet to register a point but he has averaged 22:11 TOI in his first two NHL games. Alongside Weber, Jones could become a legit fantasy option in his rookie season.
This year's fourth overall pick, Seth Jones is going to be given a big role on the Predators blueline as soon as the season starts.
Jones played over 24 minutes a night in the preseason and that workload will likely carry over into the beginning stages of his NHL career. He is expected to open the season on the Preds second-pair with Kevin Klein, as well as play next to Shea Weber on the first power-play unit. “It’s been extremely easy [playing with them]. They do a lot of things that help you with your game indirectly,” Jones said. The 6-foot-3, 200lbs. defenseman is an early Rookie of the Year favourite
This year's fourth overall pick Seth Jones appears to be set to start the season on the Predators top-pair with Shea Weber.
"It looks like Seth Jones will play in their top-four alongside Weber," David Boclair of the Nashville Post said. Jones is a great puck moving D-man and playing alongside Weber makes him an intriguing late round pick.
