Observations

March 2018 – Ben Jones is beginning to look like a late round steal of the 2017 draft. The 7th round pick finished a fantastic season with the Niagara IceDogs posting 79 points in only 68 games and looks to continue to add to his offensive numbers into the playoffs. He had a goal and an assist in his first playoff game of the year against the Oshawa Generals. In his draft-plus-one year he is already the assistant captain and looks to have all of the leadership qualities to eventually captain the Niagara as early as next year. Mason Black

January 2018 – With their final pick in their inaugural NHL entry draft the Golden Knights selected Ben Jones. Jones has improved his point totals and is currently leading the Niagara Ice Dogs with 49 points in only 42 games played. Jones is a solid all-around player – he’s a good skater, shooter, stick-handler, physical at times and has decent vision – but doesn’t possess any single attribute that jumps off the page. Jones played most of his minor hockey as a defenseman, but looks to me making solid gains since switching over to centre in the OHL.  Mason Black
