Ryan Jones downplayed the knee injury he sustained while blocking a shot on Tuesday.

Jones had to get help to get off the ice, but he was never terribly worried because he was familiar with the spot that got hit. "It did swell up pretty quickly and then we had to wait to get the swelling down during the period," Jones said. "I was back in the dressing room, likely not being so friendly, trying to get things figured out. But once the swelling went down, it seemed to be OK." He has blocked 20 shots in 51 games this season.

Ryan Jones suffered a probable knee injury during Tuesday's game.

The Edmonton Oilers have lost six consecutive games and 11 of their past 13 and veteran forward Ryan Jones thinks it's foolish that management and coaches are taking heat instead of the players.

"As a player you see the things that are said and written and it’s a Pass The Blame Game," he said. "The coaches and management don’t play the game. We play the same system as basically every other team in the NHL, it’s the players that lose. Yet they (coaches and managers) take the blame. It’s about time the guys in this lockerroom took a little bit of accountability on themselves and stopped letting other people take the blame."

Ryan Jones is hoping to make the most of his chance with the Oilers this season.

The 29-year-old was recalled from the AHL on Oct. 15 and has played well enough to be elevated to top-line minutes with David Perron ailing. He knows consistency has eluded him his career. "I’ve had good stretches throughout my career but the one thing I honestly can’t say I’ve done, is put together 25, 30 games where the coach can say, ‘Ah, I’ll put you out there all the time," Jones said. "I’ve shortened my term of thinking. In those years I had the 17, 18 goals, I was thinking if I could score once every four games that would make me a 20-goal scorer. That was my goal because I thought I could help the team that way. But what would happen is that I could go three games without scoring but then if I scored in the fourth, I could justify that. Now I go in thinking I want to have the best game I’ve had all year. Even more short term than that, every shift I go out, I want to make an impact one way or another."

Ryan Jones netted his first goal of the season on Tuesday.

Jones was playing in his third game of the season after starting the 2013-14 campaign in the minors. Several key Oilers' forwards are sidelined, so there's an opportunity there for Jones to reestablish himself with the team.

Look for Ryan Jones to play on Tuesday in place of the injured Taylor Hall.

Jones was recalled from the minors on Tuesday after he scored twice in four games for Oklahoma City of the AHL. He played 27 games last season for the Oilers, picking up seven points and 17 penalty minutes.

Ryan Jones has been summoned from the minors.

Ryan Jones hasn't given up on playing in the NHL.

Jones cleared waivers and was sent to the minors after failing to make the Oilers' opening game roster. He will instead start the season with the AHL Oklahoma City Barons. "I'm not going to go down there and pout and bring down the guys who are there. I want to be a good team guy, a good leader, but at the same time, I’m going to do my damnedest to get back to the NHL," Jones said. He signed a one-year/$1.5 million contract over the summer. A strong start in the AHL could be enough to get the Oilers to take another chance on him.

Ryan Jones has been put on waivers by the Edmonton Oilers.

Jones inked a one-year/$1.5 million contract with Edmonton over the summer, but it looks like he's failed to make the team. There's a chance that he'll end up being claimed, but we don't expect him to have any fantasy value in standard leagues regardless.

Ryan Jones should be a very motivated player next season.

He's on a one-year "prove it" contract after recording only seven points this season. "I know he’s frustrated and disappointed that he didn’t get a longer-term commitment but he certainly walks through that door with a great track record and he’ll have a great opportunity," said Oilers general manager Craig MacTavish, who sees Jones being a physical third-line left winger who can chip in some offence.

Ryan Jones understands that fan expectations of the Edmonton Oilers have changed.

"We’ve come to the end of the line as far as the fans being willing to take and accept the whole rebuilding thing," Jones said. "Now it’s time to start showing that we can win some hockey games together. We definitely have the team to do it. We've said it all along, but for whatever reason we haven’t been able to accomplish that." Edmonton hasn't made the playoffs since 2006. They're also entering the 2013-14 campaign with their fifth head coach in six seasons.

Ryan Jones has agreed to a one-year deal with the Edmonton Oilers.

Jones has seven points and 17 penalty minutes in 27 games last season. If he stays healthy, he could record 20-30 points in 2013-14.

Due to the injury suffered by Lennart Petrell forward Ryan Jones will likely be in the lineup for every game down the stretch for the Oilers.

Jones is set to become a free agent this summer and though he would like to remain with the Oilers, the team has not yet decided on their interest in him going forward. "It’s really important for us to take a really good look at Ryan Jones here and give him the opportunity to be the player he can be for the Edmonton Oilers," said head coach Ralph Krueger. He's not worthy of a roster spot in most fantasy leagues.

After a seven-game hiatus, the Edmonton Oilers dive back into the Northwest Division with a set of four games against the Vancouver Canucks and Calgary Flames, starting tonight with Vancouver in Edmonton.

"When you look at the big picture, it’s not hard to hate these teams," said the Oilers’ Ryan Jones. "Vancouver? They’re the New York Yankees of hockey. They’re an easy team to get up for ... . Both of these teams are going to demand our best." Edmonton is 5-2-2 in its last nine games while the Canucks have won six straight. "These four games are going to be huge for us," said captain Shawn Horcoff.
