Jones scored a goal and recorded four shots in a 3-2 loss to the Canucks on Tuesday night. That's three goals in the last three games, giving Jones six scores in 23 contests this season. Coupled with 11 assists, Jones is slightly ahead of his production from last season, when he posted 16 goals and 57 points in 78 games. It's worth noting Jones' shooting percentage is also a little north of normal. Even so, after this little goal-scoring spree, he's really right where he should be in the points and assists categories.
Jones scored two goals -- including the overtime winner -- in Thursday's 4-3 triumph over the Flyers. After Claude Giroux gave the hosts a 1-0 lead just 5:58 in, Jones responded with the equalizer 1:08 later. He employed a quick strike approach in overtime as well, ending the extra session after just 10 seconds. Jones' season debut was delayed by injury, but he's made up for lost time with 16 points through 21 appearances.
Jones picked up three assists, including one on the power play and one shorthanded, in Saturday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Rangers. He also added three shots, three blocked shots and a hit to his ledger. Jones took a while to get back into the flow of things after missing the first seven games of the season with a knee injury, but the 24-year-old blue line stud now has a goal and seven points in his last six contests while seeing a huge amount of ice time in all situations.
Jones tallied one assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over Dallas. With the assist, Jones has now recorded points in back-to-back games for the first time this season. Despite his relatively low scoring output, the defenseman finds himself second in the league in ice time, which could mean more scoring opportunities moving forward.
Jones recorded two assists in Sunday's 3-2 overtime loss to Anaheim. Jones logged 30:14 of ice time, including 6:05 on the power play. The young blueliner has only dressed for seven games this season, having missed the early part of the year with a knee injury. When healthy, Jones is easily capable of producing 40-60 points in a season. Look for him to continue finding the scoresheet as the season progresses.
