Jones, who averaged over a point per game last
season (34 in 33 GP), is among the ECACHL's top
10 returning scorers.
Key Statistics: Jones
was second on the Big Green in scoring with 17 goals
and 17 assists for 34 points. He averaged better than
a point per game on the year and trailed only All-America
teammate Mike Ouellette.
What He Does: He is a
versatile forward that can beat an opponent in many
ways. He's a great skater and playmaker with size, strength,
and a finisher's touch. Give him too much space and
he'll burn you from the outside. Play him close and
he'll run you over on the way to the net. Oh, by the
way, Jones also kills penalties and will serve as an
assistant captain this year.
The Bigger Picture: Two
years ago, INCH A-Z profiled
Ouellette, who emerged from the shadow cast by Lee
Stempniak and Hugh Jessiman to leave his own mark on
the Dartmouth program. Following Ouellette's graduation,
Jones has the same opportunity. The best part of it
is that he won't have to do it alone, as he's surrounded
by several talented offensive players who are NHL draft
Dartmouth assistant coach Dave
Peters on Jones: “He was a big-time player
for us last year and established himself as one of the
top offensive players. He is considered one of the best
forwards by a lot of people around the league."
