Jones is an offensive defenseman who moves the puck well. He was one of the top defensemen in the USHL this past season, registering 52 points in 56 games for the Tri-City Storm.

To be frank, I’ve only seen him play once and don’t have much of a read on him yet, but in the coming days I’ll be whipping through video and will come up with a more thorough scouting report.
