And 2013 will be the year of Jones and MacKinnon. The son of former NBA pro Popeye Jones, Seth is a monster blueliner who excels at every aspect of the game and already measures in at 6-foot-3, 200 pounds. Raised in Texas and Colorado, Jones has played the past two seasons with the U.S. national team development program, where he was constantly at the forefront of his team’s success. This year, he formed an excellent pairing with New York Rangers first-rounder Brady Skjei, who went 28th overall in Pittsburgh.

“He’s a great skating defenseman, moves the puck really well,” Jones said. “His reads are really good, he makes the game easy. We had a deal where if he jumped into a play I would stay back. There was never any mix-ups with that, just great chemistry.”
