Sure, it wasnt a great game for him but he's playing against forwards that should be in the NHL. He has been good all tournament and it's clear he has another level.
Between Mackinnon, Barkov and jones, I would argue that Jones is having the best tournament.
He was pretty poor against Russia and Canada. A ton of turnovers and some bad defensive reads. He has tremendous upside but as far as actual play goes, he hasn't been that great.
