This kid is seriously a monster though. Pretty crazy potential.
There's the possibility that Columbus takes Murray this year, and then Jones next year if they are picking at #2 again. If they do, they will have the best defensive corps in recent memory.

Looks like I'll be picking up my season ticket package for the Hawks this summer. Assuming he signs on of course.

Strange how his brother Caleb is listed only as 5'9 165, even though he is only in grade 9.

Yeah, I know when Seth was 13-14 he was already 6 feet tall, if not taller.

It's like Seth was the only one to take after his father. His other brother, Justin, is 21 years old and only 5'11'' according to eliteprospects.

I was just thinking that Columbus could be bad enough to get first overall next year.



2013 first overall Columbus gets Mackinnon.

wow big news

Portland just keeps on replacing star players, Nino and Johansson to Rattie and Baertschi who're arguably better... They lose Baertschi and get someone that is as much of a gamebreaker

I question whether Jones goes to say .... Prince George. You have a top notch well run franchise and people want to play for you.

Jones now is the headliner of an elite class in the WHL for the 2013 NHL Draft:

http://whl-from-above.blogspot.ca/20...-2013-nhl.html

Quote:
It's huge news for the WHL and fans of the NHL draft as Jones is already an elite player. He's also expected to be a top 3 pick in the 2013 NHL draft. He's coming off a USHL season where he posted 12 points in 20 games and also captained Team USA to a Gold Medal at the U-18's in the Czech Republic only weeks ago. He stands 6'3, weighs over 200 pounds and is the son of former NBA player Popeye Jones...so expect him to continue to grow.

The 2013 NHL draft is shaping up to be fantastic, especially when looking out West at the WHL. Jones now likely stands head and shoulders above the rest of the WHL crop, but that's no slight against the other players eligible. He's simply that good. He controls the tempo of a game, is a great skater for his size, hits like a truck, has excellent vision and a rocket of a shot. He can play top PP minutes and on the top PK unit. I wouldn't hesitate to say that he is very close to being NHL-ready.

Obviously.

He didn't officially comit until Portland got permission to speak to him. All this after they drafted his kid brother.

I doubt he would have come to the Dub to play anywhere else.

That said it is great for the WHL to have him. Very exciting.

I wish the CHL had some type of US NHL TV Contract, it'd be awesome to watch the prospects come up, but what ever.

I am not jumping up and down to be honest. If there is any team I am happy he goes to, Portland would be it... but I still feel he would develope better at NoDak then the WHL.

I just love dmen going the college route, especially those like Jones who need to hit the weight room a lot. Jones needs to get stronger as he grows into his frame. College helps a player do that better imo, but he wants to go the fast route I guess.

I will be cheering bigtime for him as he certainly is a highend player, but he has a bit to go before he is NHL ready...Portland is going to be loaded with US kids...I love that.
