Seth Jones averaged 30:37 in Columbus' first-round series against the Washington Capitals.
No player has averaged a higher amount of ice time in the first round in 2018. Of course, the fact that four of the Blue Jackets' six games went to overtime helped inflate Jones' ice time. He had one goal, four assists and a minus-3 rating during the series. Unfortunately for Jones and his team, they couldn't top the Capitals, so they'll be heading home early. He had a remarkable season overall. Apr 24 - 6:54 PM

It's looking like Seth Jones and Zach Werenski won't play tonight in the season finale.

Head coach John Tortorella confirmed several players would sit out of tonight's game and Aaron Portzline of The Athletic is reporting the Blue Jackets' top duo will be two of them. In their place, the Blue Jackets will have Taylor Chorney and Dean Kukan enter the lineup.

Seth Jones picked up another three assists in a 5-4 overtime win over the Detroit Red Wings.

The tree-point night gives Jones seven points in his last two games, bringing him to 57 points in 77 games and putting him in the Norris Trophy conversation. The 23-year-old blueliner has had an excellent season and has formed arguably the best duo in the NHL alongside Zach Werenski. The scary part is that both Jones and Werenski will only get better from here. Cam Atkinson (x2), Sonny Milano, Artemi Panarin and Pierre-Luc Dubois (GWG) were the goal scorers in the win.

With his four points Saturday night, Seth Jones broke the Columbus franchise record for most points by a defenseman in a single season.

Jones now has 54 points, three better than James Wisniewski's 51 in 2013-14. Jones is also getting some strong Norris Trophy consideration and his teammates and head coach can't say enough good things about him. Veteran Tomas Vanek had this to say of the Jackets' defense corps and Jones specifically: "The six [guys] that are playing are great and they're anchored by 'Jonesy,' who's by far the best defenseman I've ever played with". Columbus head coach John Tortorella made the following comment about Jones: "I want someone to show me a better defender on the back end in this league than that guy. Forget about the points and his speed and how he controls the pace of the game for us. I want someone to show me, on tape, a better defender than what we have there in Seth Jones, because there's not too many." High praise indeed.

Seth Jones had a goal and three assists in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Vancouver Canucks.

Jones is now up to 16 goals and 54 points in 76 games this season. Pierre-Luc Dubois, Zach Werenski and Cam Atkinson scored in the overtime loss.

The injury that has Seth Jones in-and-out of the lineup, is to his ribs.

Jones has 15 goals and 50 points and managed to play a team-leading 25:44 despite the injury. He missed three games in a row before playing the last two contests but the injury is bothersome enough that he has been missing practice. Jones has been one of the top blueliners this season and deserves plenty of Norris consideration.
Mar 26 - 6:44 AM

Seth Jones has been confirmed for tonight's game against the St. Louis Blues.

Jones is battling through an upper-body issue but head coach John Tortorella has indicated he is healthy enough to play. The star blueliner probably won't practice much until the end of the season but he will be healthy enough to produce points for your fantasy squad.

Seth Jones missed practice Friday due to his ongoing upper body injury.

Jones returned to action on Thursday after missing three games with the injury and scored his 15th goal of the season as well as garnering his 50th point. He will be a game-time decision Saturday so he either re-injured himself or is not completely healed. Jones deserves plenty of consideration for the Norris Trophy and his absence from the lineup would hurt the Blue Jackets.
Mar 24 - 7:56 AM
