Jones Earns Play Of The Week Honors
Forward David Jones took home the first "Avalanche Play of the Week" honor of the 2010-11 season with his backhand goal against the Detroit Red Wings. The tally, which went through the legs of both defenseman Doug Janik and goaltender Jimmy Howard, received 35.76% of fan votes.

Jones beat out Chris Stewart's season-opening tally against Chicago (30.95%) and Ryan Wilson's big hit on Nikolay Zherdev (33.29%).


The play now automatically qualifies for Colorado’s year-end “Play of the Year” bracket-style tournament – to be determined by Avalanche fans. Be sure to check back each Friday during the season, as three new choices for the Avalanche’s “Play of the Week” will be posted for you to vote upon.

Jones’ Spinning Backhand – 10/12 @ Detroit
David Jones scored his second goal of the game on this creative move. Matt Duchene carried the puck into the offensive zone and dropped a pass to Brandon Yip at the right point. Yip then made a feed into the slot to Jones, who corralled the pass, spun to his right and put a low backhander past Jimmy Howard.
