Oilers' Caleb Jones: Healthy scratch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic, Jones (undisclosed) was on the ice for pregame warmups but didn't participate in line rushes, which suggests he'll be a healthy scratch for Saturday's Game 1 against Chicago.

It will likely take an injury for Jones to crack the Oilers' lineup during the playoffs. The 23-year-old rookie picked up nine points while averaging just 14:08 of ice time per contest in 43 top-level contests during the regular season.

Oilers' Caleb Jones: Misses exhibition game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones picked up an injury that caused him to miss Tuesday's exhibition clash with Calgary, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

Coach Dave Tippett described Jones as being "nicked up," so it sounds like the defenseman's injury isn't too serious. Even if cleared to play against Chicago on Saturday, the youngster could struggle to break into the lineup over Ethan Bear or Matt Benning.

Oilers' Caleb Jones: Spotted at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (undisclosed) took the ice for practice Friday, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

Jones missed the first four days of training camp after being deemed "unfit to practice" Monday, but his presence on the ice Friday bodes well for his availability for the playoffs. The 23-year-old American emerged as a solid bottom-pairing defender during the second half of the regular season, finishing the campaign with nine points while averaging 14:08 of ice time per contest in 43 top-level appearances.

Oilers' Caleb Jones: Unavailable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was not on the ice Monday and is considered unfit to practice at this time, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

Fantasy players should get used to the phrase "unfit to practice", as the league won't be offering any additional details during the postseason. If he is able to play versus the Blackhawks, the young blueliner should be a regular in the lineup and could provide solid value in DFS contests, as he recorded nine points in 43 outings this year.

Oilers' Caleb Jones: Nets game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones scored a goal on two shots and supplied two hits in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

Jones' tally at 15:29 of the third period stood as the game-winning goal, his first such goal in his career. The 22-year-old defenseman has four goals, five assists, 37 shots on net and 46 blocked shots through 42 contests. He's typically served in a third-pairing role -- Jones isn't likely to generate enough offense for fantasy owners to take notice.

Oilers' Caleb Jones: Notches pair of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones recorded two assists -- one on the power play -- in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Kings.

Jones had a hand in the first two goals for the Oilers. The 22-year-old defenseman has a career-high eight points to go with 40 blocked shots, 29 shots on net and a minus-1 rating in 35 games this year. The acquisition of Mike Green via trade from the Red Wings could eat into Jones' ice time, both at even strength and on the power play.

Oilers' Caleb Jones: Gets lone goal in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones scored a goal on two shots and blocked two shots in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Lightning.

The defenseman has all three of his goals this season in his last six appearances. Jones is up to six points, 36 blocks and 27 shots on net through 30 games. He's unlikely to see more than third-pairing minutes -- the 22-year-old probably won't help fantasy owners much.

Oilers' Caleb Jones: Goals in consecutive games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones scored a goal on three shots in Saturday's 8-3 win over the Flames.

Jones has scored in consecutive outings. The defenseman has just five points, 31 blocked shots and 25 shots on net in 26 games this season. His recent improvement offensively still isn't enough to warrant attention from fantasy owners.

Oilers' Caleb Jones: Gets first goal of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones potted a goal on three shots and went plus-3 in Friday's 4-2 win over the Blues.

Jones tallied only 17 seconds after Leon Draisaitl opened the scoring in the first period. The 22-year-old defenseman has been limited to four points, 22 shots on goal and 30 blocked shots in 25 contests this season while almost exclusively skating in a bottom-pairing role. Jones will maintain a strong grip on his role while Kris Russell (concussion) is sidelined, but he's not likely to move the needle enough for fantasy consideration.

Oilers' Caleb Jones: Secures two-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones signed a two-year contract extension worth $850,000 AAV with the Oilers on Wednesday, Sportsnets' Chris Johnston reports.

Jones was set to be a restricted free agent this summer, but the Oilers have locked him down well ahead of time. Jones has split time between the AHL and NHL this season, accruing 11 points over 14 games in the minors and three points over 23 games at the top level. He'll likely have to compete for a full-time NHL role next year depending on whether the Oilers sign their other four pending RFA defensemen (Darnell Nurse, William Lagesson, Ethan Bear and Matthew Benning).

Oilers' Caleb Jones: Slings helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones collected an assist, two blocked shots and two PIM in Monday's 6-4 win over the Maple Leafs.

Jones skated only 9:09 in the contest, the fourth time he's failed to crack 10 minutes this season. The 22-year-old has just three assists, 23 blocked shots and a minus-4 rating in 20 games. Jones will likely return to AHL Bakersfield when Matt Benning (head) returns -- his long-term development would benefit from earning regular minutes at a lower level.

Oilers' Caleb Jones: Registers assist in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones posted an assist and three blocked shots in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Canucks.

Jones set up Ryan Nugent-Hopkins for a first-period goal. It's just the second assist of the year for Jones, who has added 20 blocks and 16 shots on goal in 17 games. He had six points in 17 outings last season -- the drop in the 22-year-old's production is likely caused by a five-minute drop in his ice time (19:48 in 2018-19 versus 14:20 in 2019-20).

Oilers' Caleb Jones: Assist for first point in 2019-20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones registered an assist in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Hurricanes.

Jones had the primary helper on Zack Kassian's first goal of the game, which came in the second period. It was his first point of 2019-20 -- Jones has added 10 blocked shots, eight hits and five shots on goal in 10 contests. He's likely to bounce between the Oilers and AHL Bakersfield for much of the season. It's unlikely the 22-year-old makes a fantasy impact this year, but owners in dynasty formats may want to stash him.

Oilers' Caleb Jones: Jumps to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Oilers recalled Jones from AHL Bakersfield on Monday.

Jones only played in one game during his AHL stint and managed to notch a point. The 22-year-old will likely play Tuesday against the Hurricanes since the Oilers don't want to waste Jones' development with a night in the press box.

Oilers' Caleb Jones: Packs bags for AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Oilers assigned Jones to AHL Bakersfield on Tuesday.

Jones averaged 15:27 over nine NHL games, but he fired just four shots on net and didn't record a point. The Oilers brought up Joel Persson to serve as the seventh defenseman going forward, while Jones will look to build on the 10 points he's notched through 13 AHL games this year.

Oilers' Caleb Jones: No points yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones has no points, a minus-2 rating and just three shots on goal in seven appearances this season.

Jones has done reasonably well on defense, and he's shown physicality with five hits and eight blocked shots. The 22-year-old had six points in 17 games with the Oilers last season. Jones will likely return to AHL Bakersfield once Matt Benning (concussion) returns.

Oilers' Caleb Jones: Recalled by Edmonton
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Oilers recalled Jones from AHL Bakersfield on Wednesday.

Edmonton placed Brandon Manning (hand) on injured reserve in a corresponding move, so Jones is likely in for an extended stay with the big club. The 22-year-old blueliner has racked up 10 points in 13 games with Bakersfield this campaign.

Oilers' Caleb Jones: Starting season in bus league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was assigned to AHL Bakersfield on Friday.

Jones wasn't able to make enough of an impact in training camp, which led to him being one of 13 players reassigned Friday. The 22-year-old defenseman registered six points in 17 games with the Oilers last year, and added 29 points (six goals, 23 assists) in 50 contests with Bakersfield. He could earn a promotion should he show well in the minors, or if injuries ravage the Oilers' blue line.

Oilers' Caleb Jones: Bakersfield bound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones was assigned to AHL Bakersfield on Monday.

Since being called up in mid-December, Jones had a goal and five assists and was a minus-9 in 17 appearances. The decision to demote the 21-year-old likely means Alex Petrovic (concussion) is close to returning to game action. Jones meanwhile will look to continue what's been a decent season at the minor-league level, where he's managed 12 points in 21 contests.

Oilers' Caleb Jones: Garners two helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones managed two assists in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Ducks.

Jones has proven to be an adequate replacement for injured defenseman Oscar Klefbom (finger). Specifically, coach Ken Hitchcock was quoted in the Edmonton Journal on New Year's Day, raving about the rookie's ability to stay calm under pressure. Jones, whose older brother is Seth Jones of the Blue Jackets, prides himself on playing a physical game as well, and he's been trusted with over 19 minutes of ice time through his first 10 games at the top level. Consider keeping tabs on him given the pedigree and praise from the bench boss.
