David Jones: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Jones tallied 37 points (20G, 17A) in 72 games last season, a disappointing result after cracking the 40-point barrier (27G, 18A) the season before. He also averaged roughly two minutes less in ice time and was frequently a healthy scratch down the stretch. Still, the Avs confirmed their commitment to the rugged winger, taking him off the free agent market in June by inking him to a new four-year, $16 million contract. Jones should open 2012-13 on the Avs' third line, but a top-six role is not out of the question provided he can step up his play.
Jones, who has been plagued by injuries over most of his short career thus far, finally managed to play close to a full slate of games last year, scoring a career-high 45 points (27G, 18A) in 77 games. As long as he stays healthy, Jones should resume his role as the Avs' second-line right winger this season. Big and rugged with a heavy shot and decent speed, Jones could be a 40-goal scorer someday if he develops some durability. He could be a late-round bargain in deeper fantasy leagues this season.
Jones played in just 23 games last season before suffering a torn ACL which effectively ended his season. He resumed practicing in early April with the intent of rejoining the team in time for the playoffs, but ultimately was unable to get himself back into the lineup. With 16 points (10 G, 6 A) in those 23 games played, Jones showed some real fantasy potential prior to his injury. He projects as a top-six forward if fully healthy, and could be a good sleeper pick on draft day.
Jones played in 40 games for the Avs last season, totaling 13 points (8G, 5A) before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury on January 27. Jones has decent offensive upside and will be part of an emerging youth movement in Denver. He should wind up playing on one of the Avs' top two lines this season if he can stay healthy.
Jones saw top-six minutes with the Avs late last season, and could wind up as the Avs' number two RW this year if he has a solid training camp and Marek Svatos continues to underperform. Jones has all the tools to be an elite power forward in the NHL - good size, strength and speed to go along with a hard, accurate shot. He's worth keeping an eye on.
Jones was sent to the Lake Erie Monsters of the AHL in Sept. 2007.
