Jones (ankle) will be available for the Blue Jackets' postseason matchup with Toronto, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports. Jones was sidelined for 14 games due to his ankle injury before the league went on hiatus. As a result, the blueliner logged just 56 regular-season games this season and failed to reach the 40-point mark for the first time since 2015-16. With the defender fully fit, he should jump back into a power-play role versus the Leafs, where he recorded nine of his 30 points this year, making him a solid fantasy option in postseason contests.
Jones (ankle) has been skating and could be ready if the NHL season resumes, according to general manager Jarmo Kekalainen, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports. Jones had started skating prior to the league suspending play, so it would appear the defenseman hasn't suffered any setbacks at this point. While Kekalainen wouldn't go so far as to clear any specific players, all signs point to the Texan being ready to go once (if) the NHL starts back up.
Jones returned to the ice Sunday for the first time since undergoing ankle surgery Feb. 11. The 25-year-old was designated for injured reserve after suffering the ankle injury and was given an 8-to-10 week recovery timeline following the procedure. Barring a setback, Jones should be healthy once the NHL schedule resumes.
Jones (ankle) should be ready to rejoin the lineup once the NHL schedule resumes, Brian Hedger of The Columbus Dispatch reports. The stud blueliner underwent ankle surgery Feb. 11, and the original timeline for his recovery would have seen him return for the final couple games of the regular season as a best-case scenario. Instead, Jones will get ample time to recover during the shutdown, and he should be a key part of whatever playoff push the Jackets make once play resumes.
Jones (ankle) underwent successful ankle surgery Tuesday and is expected to miss at least eight weeks of action, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports. The minimum eight weeks on this current timeline would put Jones' return right around the Blue Jackets' final two games of the regular season. Should the team fall out of a playoff spot, it will likely hold him out for the rest of the 2019-20 campaign. The 25-year-old blueliner has 30 points in 56 games while averaging 25:17 of ice time.
