Dartmouth\'s Jones Named Ivy League Player of the Year
Dartmouth junior and Avalanche prospect David Jones was named Ivy League Player of the Year.

Jones, the first player since Ross Brownridge in 1980 to be a unanimous selection, was also chosen first-team All-Ivy. He becomes just the third player in Dartmouth history to be named the Ivy League Player of the Year.

He earned his second first-team award after a stellar junior campaign. Dartmouth's assistant captain has played in all 29 games this season and is leading the team with a career-high 39 points. He contributed four goals and 14 assists on the power play and has 15 goals and 24 assists on the season.

Jones ended the ECACHL regular season as the conference's leading scorer with 31 points. Along with first place in scoring he finished eighth in the ECACHL in goals, second in assists, third in power-play points and seventh in game winning goals.
