Seth Jones Out With A Hairline Fracture To His Foot

COLUMBUS, OHIO - The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed defenseman Seth Jones on Injured Reserve, club General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced today. He is expected to miss three weeks after suffering a hairline fracture of his foot in Saturday's contest at St. Louis.

Jones, 22, has registered three goals and three assists for six points with a +1 plus/minus rating and has averaged 24:14 of ice time in 10 games with the Jackets this season. He leads the Blue Jackets in time on ice (17th in NHL) and leads club defensemen in goals and ranks second in assists and points.

The Arlington, Texas native has posted 20-69-89 with 66 penalty minutes in 250 career NHL games with the Blue Jackets and Nashville Predators. He has collected 5-21-26 and 12 penalty minutes in 51 games with Columbus since being acquired in a trade from Nashville on January 6, 2016. Jones was the Predator's first round pick, fourth overall, in the 2013 NHL Draft.
