Seth Jones (foot) has been activated by the Columbus Blue Jackets.

It was thought he would be back soon after he practiced with the team over the weekend and it looks like he will return against Colorado on Monday night. Jones missed just six games after he suffered a hairline fracture in his foot on Nov. 5.

Seth Jones (foot) practiced with the Blue Jackets for the first time since his injury two weeks ago.

Jones is projected to return at some point this week but is doubtful for Sunday's game against Washington. He has six points in 10 games thus far but his presence has really been missed in the Columbus lineup as he has averaged 24:14 minutes of playing time. Get ready to activate him.
Nov 20 - 6:33 AM

Seth Jones is projected to miss about three weeks with a hairline fracture of his foot.

He has been moved to injured reserve by the Blue Jackets. Jones suffered the injury in Saturday's match against St. Louis. He has averaged 24:14 of ice time in 10 games with Columbus this season and he has chipped in six points, so his presence from the back end will be sorely missed.
Nov 7 - 11:53 AM

Seth Jones scored the game-winning goal in Tuesday's 3-2 OT win over the Dallas Stars.

The Jackets trailed 2-1 in the dying moments of the game, but Sam Gagner's tied the game with 16 seconds remaining in regulation. It took Jones just 46 seconds to score in the extra frame. Jones finished the game with two shots on goal, one hit and five blocked shots in 25:27 of ice time. Nick Foligno also scored for the Blue Jackets on Tuesday night.
Nov 1 - 9:59 PM

Seth Jones scored a goal and an assist in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Boston Bruins.

The Jackets came into this season, as one of the favorites to finish at the bottom of the NHL standings and they didn't disappoint tonight. Columbus scored the first two goals of the game and they jumped ahead 3-1 in the second period before allowing Boston to score five unanswered goals. Jones picked up a primary assist on Alexander Wennberg's first period goal and he added one of his own in the second period. He finished the game with a minus-1 rating, two shots on goal, one blocked shot and three takeaways in 23:06 of ice time. He'll be his team's number one defenseman this season.

Seth Jones would not rule out the chances of Team North America winning the World Cup.

"That’s why we are here," Jones said. "We’re not going to back down from anyone. We’re young, not as experienced as other teams may be, but I think we have the skill to win it and the drive in the room. I think everyone is extremely competitive and we’re here for a purpose." Jones is playing alongside fellow Blue Jacket Ryan Murray on the blueline. The duo was solid in the win over Finland and that bodes well for the future of Columbus as the two will get valuable experience playing together against the World's best. Look for Jones to garner 35-40 points this season and draft him accordingly.
Sep 19 - 7:19 AM

Seth Jones has inked a six-year contract with Columbus worth $32.4 million.

The 21-year-old defenseman's new deal has an annual average value of $5.4 million. Jones registered 20 points in 41 games with the Blue Jackets after he was acquired from Nashville in the Ryan Johansen trade.

Columbus is reportedly close to signing an extension with Seth Jones, according to a source.

Cap space is tight for the Blue Jackets, but locking up the young defenseman is a top priority for the team. Jones was acquired from Nashville in the Ryan Johansen trade last season.
Jun 29 - 10:22 AM

The talks between Columbus and Seth Jones for a contract extension are expected to heat up in the near future.

Jones is set to be a restricted free agent this summer after completing his entry-level contract. After recording three goals and 31 points in 81 contests and logging big minutes, he might seek a contract similar to Morgan Rielly's six-year, $30 million deal. "I don’t anticipate any problems," Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen said. "We’ll find a deal that works for us and a deal that works for Seth Jones." The question isn't if Jones will re-sign, it's if the Blue Jackets will be able to avoid the contract negotiations dragging into training camp like they did for Ryan Johansen in 2014.
Apr 20 - 8:46 AM

Seth Jones will return to Nashville Saturday for the first time since being dealt to Columbus for Ryan Johansen.

The fourth overall pick in 2013 was dealt halfway through the season. "It’s going to be exciting," Jones said. "I’m looking forward to it. I was there two years, and it’s the team that drafted me. So it’ll be a special game, for sure." Jones has been a huge part of the Blue Jackets since the deal and is on the top pairing with fellow youngster Ryan Murray. The duo should be one of the best in the NHL in a couple of years if they remain together. It will be a big night for the 21-year-old and he could be worth taking in DFS.

Seth Jones scored his 3rd goal of the season in the Blue Jackets victory over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night.

In 30 games, since the trade from the Nashville Predators in January, Jones has also 24 assists while tallying 27 points. So far the 21 year-old has been a nice addition for the Blue Jackets.
Mar 20 - 8:59 AM

Seth Jones and Alexander Wennberg got on Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella's bad side for their role in Columbus' 2-1 overtime loss to Boston Tuesday night.

Jones and Wennberg both failed to properly cover their man early in the overtime period, which led to the deciding goal. "When you’re playing man on man and there’s a lot of criss-crossing, you can get beat and lose your coverage," Tortorella said. "(But) that was a simple three-men-entering-our-zone. All you have to do is find your man. Jones needs to step up on Krug, Wenny needs to have the wide guy and it’s solved, they get nothing out of it. You can explain it 10 different ways, it’s a blown coverage." Tortorella described that goal as a free one and said it pissed him off. To be fair to Wennberg, he did also score the Blue Jackets' lone goal. Jones on the other hand also played a role in the Bruins' first goal against Columbus.

Seth Jones picked up two assists on Saturday.

Jones has been an assist machine for the Blue Jackets since his trade from Nashville as he now has 10 helpers in 16 games. The fourth overall pick in the 2013 Draft is a talented blueliner and the Blue Jackets have themselves a real talent on the blueline. Target Jones in all dynasty pools.
Feb 14 - 7:46 AM

Seth Jones picked up an assist in a 4-3 shootout win over Anaheim Thursday night.

That gives Jones eight assists in 15 contests since the Blue Jackets acquired him from Nashville. It's a step up from his work with the Predators as he had a goal and 11 points in 40 contests prior to the trade.
