There are many, including his coach John Tortorella, who believe Seth Jones should be in the Norris Trophy conversation.
Jones, who is tied for seventh in defensemen scoring with 30 points, is having a breakout season and has been excellent in five-on-five situations and on both the power-play and the penalty kill. "He has to be in consideration, as far as the Norris," Tortorella said. "Not too many people want to hear that or talk about him that way ...He is a dangerous player every time he is on the ice, both offensively and defensively. The biggest thing — and I’m really looking forward to seeing it — is he knows there’s more. He wants to put people on his back, and he expresses that every time he goes on the ice." High praise indeed from a coach not known for giving out public compliments. Needless to say, Jones should be a trade target in every pool regardless of format. Jan 13 - 9:54 AM

Seth Jones has spent the Blue Jackets' last two games on the first power-play unit.

Typically the Blue Jackets run four forwards and blueliner Zach Werenski, but their power play had been struggling so coach John Tortorella decided to mix things up. Cam Atkinson, Nick Foligno and Artemi Panarin are the three forwards that have remained on the top unit with Werenski and Jones while Alexander Wennberg isn't on either power-play line. Columbus is still 0-for-5 with the man advantage over its last two games, so these changes haven't led to immediate results, but Tortorella has liked what he's seen from the new units, so he might stick with them for now.
