from Scott Cruickshank of the Calgary Herlad,
“Seth Jones is going to be Seth Jones,” Trotz, ever pleasant, said Tuesday morning. “When all is said and done, he’s probably going to put on another 30 pounds. So he’s going to be a six-five, 235, really strong-skating defenceman who could be a difference-maker every night.
“That would be my comparable to whoever you can come up with.”
Shea Weber didn’t bite on the name-game either.
“I’m not sure,” the Preds captain said with a shrug. “But he’s something special. Mobility, that’s his biggest asset. And, for a 19-year-old, the poise he has with the puck. You don’t see a lot of guys, especially defencemen, have the patience and control to make those plays in tight areas — and do it with confidence.”
But Jones, like any teenager tiptoeing into the NHL, has had his moments.
According to the kid himself, the first 20 games had been solid. Then? A somewhat troublesome stretch.
