Playing career[edit | edit source]
Drafted in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft 288th overall, he played 3 years of collegiate hockey at Dartmouth College. In 2006–07, he was named Ivy League Player of the Year, also becoming a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award. He was in his first season in the American Hockey League (AHL) with the Lake Erie Monsters before being called up by the Avalanche on December 20, 2007.
Jones scored his first career NHL goal on March 11, 2008 in a 5–2 victory over the Atlanta Thrashers. He also tallied two assists and was named as the first star of the game. He has yet to be sent back to the minors.
Injuries limited most of Jones' first two seasons, and his third season with the Avalanche showed much promise. After scoring ten goals and six assists for 16 points in his 23rd game of the 2009-10 season, injury finds Jones again on November 28, 2009, in a 3-2 shootout loss against the Minnesota Wild. He tangled up with Minnesota's Chuck Kobasew at center ice and landed hard with his knee in an awkward position just before teammate Paul Stastny tripped over him. He left the Pepsi Center with a torn anterior cruciate ligament and is expected to miss the remainder of the regular season.
