He's not a typical southern kid.
His mom is white.

He was born in Texas and I believe moved to Colorado when he was 9-ish. Got into hockey when the Avs were at the all-star level with Sakic being his favourite player. His dad talked to Sakic about hockey and Sakic gave him his skating coach. I believe Jones family house is in Texas, so it's hard to classify him as a Southern player, but to the casual fan he IS a player with basketball roots choosing hockey coming from Texas.

Anyone have the ratings for last night's rivalry game? I am curious on how well it did considering it was against a rebuilding club.
