Seth Jones is ready to return from concussion-like symptoms.

Jones is expected to play against San Jose on Saturday as opposed to Friday's contest versus Anaheim. He has six goals and 24 points in 72 games this season.
Apr 4 - 4:43 PM

Seth Jones will probably be back in Nashville's lineup on Friday, as he has recovered from his concussion-like symptoms.

"He's been cleared, so unless there's anything (unusual) he should be fine," coach Barry Trotz said. Jones practiced again on Tuesday after he returned to the ice alongside his teammates on Monday.
Apr 2 - 12:49 PM

Seth Jones joined his teammates for practice on Sunday for the first time since suffering concussion-like symptoms against Chicago on Mar. 23.

He might be ready to return for Friday's game versus Anaheim, but don't be surprised if the Predators choose to err on the side of caution. "He's 19 years old," coach Barry Trotz said. "We're going to be very cautious with a young guy so there's no long-term (issues). He's clear, he's alert. He's doing all the physical stuff with no problems, so it's good. We've taken our time a little bit, too. You never want to put a player at risk at any time, especially a young player."

Seth Jones (concussion) isn't likely to be available on Sunday.

Jones has already been sidelined for three straight games. With so little time left in the season, it wouldn't be shocking if he's done for the 2013-14 campaign.
Mar 30 - 10:51 AM

Seth Jones experienced concussion-like symptoms after he was hit early into Sunday's game against Chicago.

He finished the first period after he was nailed by Andrew Shaw, but he didn't play afterward. "We'll get him re-evaluated tomorrow and see where he is," coach Barry Trotz said. "We're not going to put him at any risk. He's a 19-year-old kid playing in a man's game here." It's unlikely that he'll be available to play on Tuesday against Colorado.

Seth Jones scored a goal and added an assist for the Predators in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Senators.

The goal Jones scored late in overtime sent Ottawa's home crowd home disappointed and lifted the young blueliner's stat line to 23 points in 65 contests. Eric Nystrom, Nick Spaling and Craig Smith all tallied for Nashville in the win.
Mar 10 - 10:36 PM

Seth Jones will be paired with Mattias Ekholm in Thursday's match versus Tampa Bay.

He had been playing with Michael Del Zotto prior to the break, but coach Barry Trotz thought it was time for a change. Del Zotto will play alongside Ryan Ellis instead. Jones and Ekholm have played together this year already.

Seth Jones had an assist in Nashville's 2-1 shootout loss on Saturday.

Jones has a goal and six points in his last eight games. He has 17 points and a minus-11 rating in 46 contests. We wouldn't be surprised if he manages to reach the 30-point mark in his rookie campaign.
Jan 12 - 11:22 AM

Seth Jones notched a goal in the Predators' 5-4 shootout loss to the Panthers on Saturday night.

Jones began the year playing frontline minutes, but the game and experience of the league has caught up with him over the past month and his ice time has dropped. He now has points in three of the last four games, good for four goals and 16 points on the season. Craig Smith, Mike Fisher and Paul Gausted scored the others. Shea Weber had two assists.
Jan 4 - 10:21 PM

Seth Jones chipped in two assists in Nashville's 6-4 victory against Detroit Monday night.

He has four helpers and a plus-5 rating in his last two outings. The rookie blueliner has 15 points in 40 games.

Seth Jones played a strong game against the Kings Saturday night.

He registered two assists and received the most ice time (19:08) he has received in three weeks. Jones is a promising rookie who will have his ups and downs typical of first-year players for the balance of the season.

Seth Jones, who grew up in Arlington as the son of former Dallas Maverick basketball player Popeye Jones, did not have a very successful return to his hometown.

He played only 11:01 and was minus one in a 4-1 loss to the Stars. Jones has struggled the past month after a hot start to the season and Preds' coach Barry Trotz is trying to find the right balance of playing time for the talented rookie. "He wants to be a good player," Trotz said. "He understands and he absorbs coaching. From an issue standpoint, there's really no issues. He's just a young guy playing in a man's game. He got a little worn out, and we reduced his minutes. Now, we're trying to find the right level of minutes for him." Until this gets sorted out we would bench Jones if you have another alternative.

Seth Jones knows he's lucky that he avoided sustaining a serious injury when he was struck by the puck near the ice during Saturday's game.

Jones ended up with a gash near his left eye. "The doctor said it was probably the best spot cut-wise for it to happen," Jones said. "When it happened, I was feeling around it. I knew it wasn't around (the eye), so it got a little scary that it was right on the eye." The eye was temporarily swollen shut, but that's been fixed. He's expected to play Monday.

Seth Jones was back on the ice for practice Sunday and he appears to be fine.

He took a deflected shot off his face in Saturday's contest and was kept out of the game, with what the team called an "upper-body injury." Jones said his visor blocked most of the shot, but he was sporting a cut near his eye. It sounds like he'll be available to play Monday.
