Observations:

May 2014 – Jones had a fairly successful rookie season for the Predators. He played top three minutes and contributed a respectable 25 points in 77 games played. One point of concern for Jones was a minus-23 which was one of the league’s worst. He also seemed to fade a little down the stretch after a strong start to the season, which makes sense given the amount of minutes he was fed. That being said, Jones flashed moments of brilliance and it shouldn’t be long before he strings together an elite fantasy season. Jones is currently participating at the IIHF World Championships where he is having a fantastic tournament leading all defencemen in scoring. Donesh Mazloum

 

October 2013 – Jones has had a spectacular start to his NHL career thus far. Since Roman Josi went down with a concussion in the second game of the season, Jones has thrived playing alongside Preds captain Shea Weber. He leads all rookies in ice time per game, playing over 24 minutes a night, and carries with him a positive plus/minus. His two goals and five points also gives him a share of the rookie defenceman scoring lead. Jones’ potential is through the roof and he clearly has the trust of coach Trotz. Jones is a solid option in one year leagues and is a must own in keeper formats. Donesh Mazloum

 

July 2013 – Seth Jones became the fourth 2013 draft pick to sign his 3 year entry level contract. Donesh Mazloum

 

July 2013 – The top ranked North American skater according to central scouting, Jones surprisingly fell to the Nashville Predators at fourth in the 2013 entry draft. Prior to the draft, GM David Poile declared Jones the best player available and was naturally ecstatic when Jones was available at four. Jones joins an organization known for developing high end defensive talent and should thrive under Barry Trotz. Jones will step into the lineup immediately and if given powerplay time could be a solid fantasy option sooner rather than later. Donesh Mazloum
