He actually made the team out of camp last season, but got injured. He had a decent season in the AHL, but was injured again. I think most of us see him in the AHL this season barring him having a camp that blows the coaching staff away. The competition on the blueline is just that much tougher this season and with already have seven defensemen and one Hale on one way contracts it's just going to be very tough for him to make it this season. Next year is more likely with Hale and Aucoin (And, possibly Michalek too but I really don't want to think about that.) out the door.

As for what you can expect. Jonas is a big shutdown defenseman. Extremely solid defensively and very physical. Actually his second injury was from a fight. He's a no frills unflashy shutdown defenseman, don't expect a whole lot of offense.
