Randy Jones (born July 23, 1981) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who is currently playing for the Winnipeg Jets of the National Hockey League (NHL). He previously played for the Los Angeles Kings, Philadelphia Flyers and Tampa Bay Lightning.
Jones played junior hockey with the Cobourg Cougars of the Ontario Provincial Junior A Hockey League. He played for Clarkson University in the NCAA from 2002–03. On July 24, 2003, he was signed to a contract as a free agent by the Philadelphia Flyers. Jones eased his way into the Flyers lineup, spending most of his first season with their American Hockey League affiliate, the Philadelphia Phantoms. He played with the Phantoms through the 2004–05 NHL lockout, and the next season, he split games between the Phantoms and the Flyers. He played 66 games in the 2006–07 NHL season, and started the 2007–08 NHL season with the Flyers.
On October 27, 2007, he boarded Patrice Bergeron of the Boston Bruins. Bergeron was knocked unconscious and wheeled off on a stretcher, and then sent to the hospital. Jones was assessed a five minute boarding major and a game misconduct. He issued an apology during the second period of the game. On October 29, it was announced that he had been suspended two games as a result of the hit. On the ruling, NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell said, "While it is my determination that Jones did not intend to injure his opponent, he did deliver a hard check to a player who was in a vulnerable position." Bergeron did not play for the remainder of the season.
On July 2, 2008 the Flyers announced that they signed Jones to a two-year contract extension.
On September 26, 2009, the Flyers announced that they had placed Jones on waivers in order to clear up space under the salary cap. He cleared waivers and was assigned to the Adirondack Phantoms on September 30.
After becoming an unrestricted free agent, Jones signed a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning on August 25, 2010.
