NHL.com showed him with 11:56 last night. I think this is normal development curve. I hope he doesn't hit the rookie wall, and hopefully this will help. Right now the coaching staff trusts the other pairings more in certain situations, but Jones is still in a great position to learn, develop and contribute. If he was actually benching him it would be different.
Also, with all the earlier ice time, teams appear to have figured out his game a little bit and have adjusted. This is typical, he will adjust his game.
