He was always credited with phantom body checks by the official scorers. It was embarrassing from day 1 of his contract. Hitting in the NHL is a joke, apparently Jones who was able to glide guys into the boards or a little chicken wing push is a hit.
The guy has good speed, but he always lets up when he could be destroying guys. He never finishes his bodycheck.
