Avalanche Recalls Jones
The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that it has recalled forward David Jones from the Lake Erie Monsters, the team’s American Hockey League affiliate. 

Jones, 23, Colorado’s eighth selection (288th overall) in the 2003 Entry Draft, departed Lake Erie as the club’s third-leading scorer with 15 points (7g/8a) in 27 games played. The 6-2, 220-pound native of Guelph, Ontario has registered points in four of his last five games (2g/3a) and leads the club in power play goals with six.

Prior to signing with the Avalanche last May, Jones played three seasons at Dartmouth (ECAC) and was named Ivy League Player of the Year in 2006-2007. During that campaign, Jones was named as a finalist for the Hobey Baker Memorial Award, a first for a Dartmouth skater. As a junior last season, he led Dartmouth in goals (18), assists (26) and points (44) and finished sixth overall among NCAA scorers, posting 1.33 points per game.

Jones is the sixth Avalanche skater recalled from its AHL affiliate this season, joining fellow 2006-07 Hobey Baker finalist T.J. Hensick along with Kyle Cumiskey, Jeff Jillson, Cody McCormick and Cody McLeod as Avalanche call-ups to date.

In related move, the Avalanche placed forward Brad Richardson on injured reserve with a shoulder injury.
