Dr Jones fans might enjoy this read. David Jones getting some props in a recent NHL.com article.


Jones began the season at left wing on a line with Duchene and right wing Milan Hejduk, but he has played on both sides with numerous linemates because the Avalanche has been hit with so many injuries.

Does this mean that he'll be injured in the next game?

But none of the above are considered NHL-ready — Nugent-Hopkins and Huberdeau are listed at 170 and 155 lbs., respectively — and therefore would likely not be candidates to fit that second-line role with the Senators next season, or perhaps for a couple of more seasons.

NHL-ready, they say, is Landeskog. He is 6-foot, 201 lbs.

He has 33 goals and 62 points in 49 games, playing for the Kitchener Rangers in the most defensively responsible major junior league of the three in Canada.
